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.

The Presbyterian Church of La Porte

On Sunday The Presbyterian Church of La Porte’s contemporary Cross Connection service will be live-streamed on Facebook at presbyterianchurchoflaporte at 9.30 a.m. The parking lot traditional service will be live-streamed at 11:30 a.m. Elder  Barbara Vinson from The First Presbyterian Church in Michigan City will preach from Mark 25:21-34, “A Touch of Faith.” Both services will also be available on the Facebook page for later viewing.

Award-winning carillonneur John Gouwen will give a carillon recital immediately following the parking lot service. The bulletin and recital program are at yourhomechurch.org.

St. John’s Lutheran Church

Located at the corner of Monroe Street and Kingsbury Avenue, St. John’s Lutheran Church has resumed worship services.

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.

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 announced that there will be two worship options: 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.

There will be in-person for our 9 a.m. 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.

Holy Eucharist will be offered.

We also offer weekly:

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

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

Daily Office offerings at the Diocesan Virtual Worship Facebook Page, St. Paul’s Facebook
