UPDATES from Church Council regarding COVID-19

May 15th: Given the change from Stay at Home orders from our Governor to Stay Safe MN orders beginning on May 18th, we will soon begin live-streaming from our sanctuary again with the support of a very limited and physically distanced worship team. While we will remain worshiping online-only for the foreseeable future, we are exploring safe options and necessary precautionary procedures for worshiping outside together in person at some point in the summer months.

At our last council meeting we discussed the information presented in the following video conference organized by the Minneapolis Area Synod office with epidemiologist Dr. Michael Osterholm and we invite you to watch that video as well linked below. The church council will continue to meet every other week and will keep you comprised of any changes as we navigate these complicated times together, physically distanced for safety, but united in Christ always.

Dr. Michael Osterholm on the pandemic and reopening in-person worship

Welcome

Cross of Hope Lutheran Church, as a community of Christian faith, strives to invite all people into a deeper walk of discipleship. Rooted in the theology of inclusion framed by the Apostle Paul (Galatians 3:28) we welcome, celebrate, and affirm all people of every race and culture without regard to age, abilities, addictions, physical or mental health, citizenship status, socioeconomic circumstance, sexual orientation, gender identity, or relationship status.

We recognize one baptism in the name of the Holy Trinity regardless of where it occurred, or who performed it. We celebrate an open communion table acknowledging that it is Christ’s table and not our own.

All are welcome here. You are welcome here.
