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. Paul’s Episcopal Church

Prayers for our nation for election day is planned for Tuesday, Nov. 3, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The church is located at 1000 Michigan Ave., LaPorte, 219-362-2784.

Regardless of one’s political stance, we at St. Paul’s believe deeply in the power of prayer and desire to surround this election in those prayers. Stop in for private prayer anytime during the day or join us at 9:15 a.m., 12:15 p.m., and 4:15 p.m. for a short guided prayer. Masks and social distancing are required.

In addition, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is pleased to offer both in-person and online worship, each Sunday at 9 a.m.  The Holy Eucharist will be celebrated and communion will be offered in the form of bread only.  All safety precautions will be observed.  Individuals interested in attending should register at www.stpaulslaporte.org.  Masks are required and social-distancing is encouraged.
If you would like to view us online, you may do so on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/stpaullaporte.  Everyone is welcome.  Blessings!

 

The Presbyterian Church of La Porte

 On Sunday there will be an additional option for worshiping with The Presbyterian Church of La Porte. Sunday is All Saints Day, a remembrance of loved ones who have died in the past 12 months. Parishioners may choose to worship on Zoom, on a landline or cell phone, or on Facebook live streamed.

For either service via Zoom on a tablet or computer, everyone will be able to see each other, together as a congregation, and talk together after worship for an online “coffee hour.”

Both services can be viewed on Facebook as usual at presbyterianchurchoflaporte. Another option is a parking lot service at 307 Kingsbury Ave.; tune to radio station 89.1 FM.

Renowned carillonneur John Gouwens will perform a carillon concert after the11:30 a.m. parking lot service.

With COVID-19 cases rising, La Porte County is in the “orange,” based on the data from the Indiana Health Department, so there will be no in-person worship Sunday. The City of Chicago has issued a travel ban for Chicago residents to Indiana. Until that ban lifts, Rev. Abbi Heimach-Snipes will lead services remotely from her Chicago home.

St. John’s Lutheran Church

St. John’s Lutheran Church, located at the corner of Monroe Street and Kingsbury Avenue, has announced that in-person worship services have been suspended for the next two weeks due to a rise in the COVID-19 numbers in the county as well as within our membership.  In response, the  governing board at its meeting opted to revert back to virtual worship for the weekends of October 24-25 and October 31-November 1. This decision was not an easy one, but it was made out of love and concern for our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.

In the next two weeks, please join us for worship on our website at:
 www.stjohnslaporte.org,   Log into Facebook | Facebook (where you can also access our daily devotions), or visit our YouTube channel directly at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeT40i2hwKO6OG9Ujs7QioQ/featured.

For more information please contact the church office at 219-362-3726.

La Porte New Church

La Porte New Church, located at the corner of Indiana and Maple Avenues, continues to hold Zoom Sunday services at 10 a.m. with Rev. Kit Billings leading us in worship services that give us hope and understanding in these challenging times. The premise of LaPorte New Church is that God’s goodness and peace will prevail in us as we draw closer to the love, wisdom, and forgiveness he offers every one of us. All are invited to email Rev. Billings for the Zoom meeting login:  revkit123@gmail.com.  Also feel free to connect with him at 219-380-4682 for grief support, wedding information, or pastoral care. We wish you well.
