Articles of faith

Does your church have a brief news announcement?  “Articles of Faith” will be appearing at the end of the week on WNLP. Please submit your church’s news brief for the upcoming weekend at wnlp@whatsnewlaporte.com.

St. John’s Lutheran Church

Located at the corner of Monroe Street and Kingsbury Avenue, St. John’s Lutheran Church has announced the resuming of worship services effective July 4-5.

The Saturday evening service (traditional worship) will be conducted in the sanctuary of the church at 6 p.m. Worshipers will enter by the door under the portico (roofed) entrance or the double doors by the ramp on the Kingsbury Avenue. These will be the only two door available for entrance. Attendances will be taken at the door and offerings will be received there. Social distancing will be observed and hand sanitizing stations will be available.

The Sunday morning service (“CONNECT” service) will be conducted in the school cafeteria. Attendances will be taken at the door and offerings received there. Hand sanitizing stations will be available. Worshipers will then proceed to the cafeteria for the service, seated in chairs with social distancing in place. Be mindful that if response to this service is greater than the capacity available, additional services may have to be planned in the future.

Rev. Ron Brauer has announced his retirement effective July 7, but has offered to be available to assist for future needs.

For more information please contact the Church Office at 219-362-3726.

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church

Mother Michelle Walker, Priest-in-Charge of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church has shared that there will be two worship options beginning July 5: in-person and online. With careful planning and a downward (or stable) trend of new COVID-19 cases in LaPorte County, we are ready to begin offering both in-person and online worship.

Beginning July 5, you may join us in-person for our 9am service. Masks are required. Social distancing will be enforced. Frequent hand sanitizing is encouraged. And please only attend if you have no signs of illness. If you do plan to attend, please register here. (Due to limited seating, we are registering people. Registration will close in the event we reach out seating capacity.) We also request that you review our regathering guidelines and take a peak at our seating capacity chart so that you may be best prepared to enjoy our service.

We are equally thrilled to share that we plan to continue live streaming. If you’ve already logged into and enjoyed our live streamed services, feel free to continue to worship with us that way. We realize not everyone is ready to be in public and we’re happy to offer our live stream option indefinitely. You can find us at St. Paul’s Facebook for LIVE from St. Paul’s on Sunday mornings beginning at 8:50am for our organ prelude and at 9am for Morning Prayer.

Please note July 5th will be a service of Morning Prayer with Holy Eucharist offered July 12th and beyond.

We also offer weekly:

Sunday 10am Virtual Coffee Hour via Zoom (connection details available from priest@stpaulslaporte.org)

Thursday 9am Morning Prayer & Bible Study via Zoom (connection details available from priest@stpaulslaporte.org)

Presbyterian Church of La Porte

On Sunday Rev. Peggy Huston’s sermon is “Christianity and Patriotism.”  On the church’s Facebook page, laportepresbyterianchurch, the prerecorded sermon will be at 9:30 a.m. and the parking lot service at 307 Kingsbury Ave. will be at 11:30 a.m. People may bring lawn chairs to enjoy the weather and listen to the sermon from a PA system or remain in their cars and listen. A carillon concert will follow the sermon.

As the first Sunday of the month, it will be Communion Sunday. For at-home worship through Facebook, have bread and juice ready. Those attending the parking lot service bring their own or choose a self-contained communion wafer and cup from the trays that will be offered.
