Letter from the Church Council

Dear LCC family,
As you know, COVID numbers in our area are rapidly climbing. We at LCC have been lucky. However, with the ever-increasing numbers in mind, and our continued concern for the safety of all worshipers, worship team and staff, the LCC council voted Tuesday night to check the
Burleigh/Morton positivity rate each Monday noon. If it hits 18%, we will go back to online only worship services, confirmation, and church school. We will let you know immediately if that move is made.

Continuing to pray for the health and safety of all,
Krisi Kunz, Church Council President
on behalf of LCC Council and Staff
