Capacity Changes Starting April 1st

Dear LCC Family,

With falling COVID infection rates and the increasing number of vaccinations in North Dakota, the Church Council has decided to expand the number of in-person worshippers in the sanctuary to 150 people beginning April 1st. In addition, we intend to increase this limit by 50 attendees each month until our maximum capacity is reached. This plan will be re-assessed on a regular basis and be revised as COVID-19 rates fluctuate. In support of our staff, visitors, and parishioners, we ask the congregation to continue wearing masks, to practice social distancing and to stay home when ill.

The Council has also been discussing resuming fellowship time after services for visiting (initially without food and drinks), which will depend on COVID trends. Please check the LCC website, service bulletin, announcement monitors, and newsletters after the Easter Season for developments. We shall enjoy coffee together again!!

Thank you to all our church family for your patience, prayers, and love for one another, which has sustained this body of Christ during a trying time!

In Christ,

LCC Church Council
