Worship Video Link for 7.25.21

 Hi, Friends-Tech!  Due to an automatic update with our camera programming, we were unable to live stream yesterday's service.  But we quickly set up our phone to record.  Then for some reason the video wouldn't upload to YouTube at the church which is usually pretty quick.  So we did it at home overnight.  Here it is!

Worship Info for 7.25.21

 Dear Friends-Join us for worship this Sunday either in person or online at 9:30AM Pacific Time.  

We will have a congregational meeting at 10:30AM to discuss a pastors' compensation proposal.  That meeting will in person and via Zoom.  A follow-up email will be sent with information for that meeting.

If you are joining us in-person, we are following the state guidelines regarding masks:  facial coverings are no longer mandatory for the fully vaccinated. Per the CDC recommendations, we would also highly encourage people who are not vaccinated to wear a facial covering. And, regardless of vaccination status, anyone who feels more comfortable wearing a facial covering for any reason whatsoever, should certainly do so. Our aim is to be as inclusive as possible as we navigate our unusual and changing times. Since we are singing, people should still maintain social distancing to help reduce the possible spread of Covid-19 variants to those who are still vulnerable.   We are no longer requesting RSVP's, but please sign in when you arrive for worship.  We are continuing to keep names just in case we need to do contact tracing. 

You can connect online at www.facebook.com/groups/fpclagrande to watch the service live and you can use that same link to access a recording of the worship service anytime.

Worship Info for 7.18.21

 Join us for worship online or in person this Sunday at 10:30AM Pacific Time as we glorify God together with our brothers and sisters in Christ from the Pendleton and Baker City Presbyterian Churches at the beautiful chapel at Westminster Woods.  There will not be a worship service in La Grande.


If you join us in person, we encourage those who are unvaccinated to wear a mask.  Those who are vaccinated may wear a mask as they feel comfortable.  The chapel has a removal outside wall to allow ample ventilation and spacing.  There will not be a potluck this year, but folks are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch to eat following the service.  To get there, take I-84 West approximately 24 miles.  Take exit 234 toward Emigrant Springs State Park and at the top of the exit ramp, make a left turn to cross back over I-84.  At the intersection make a sharp left turn.  Continue straight for approximately .4 miles and turn right at the entrance to Westminster Woods.

Pentecost/Ring Praise Reminder

 Hi, Friends-Just a last minute reminder of things happening tomorrow in celebration of Pentecost.


For the church service, remember to wear red!  We encourage you to wear red at home, too!  We will serve communion during the service and have an option for drive through communion for those who don't come to the in-person service.  A reminder that we are still requiring the wearing of masks.

We are hosting Ring Praise at 6:30PM in person in the sanctuary and virtual at www.facebook.com/groups/fpclagrande.  I think I sent out a not complete link earlier.  It is the same link we do for Sunday morning worship.  Masks required.  Please let us know you are coming by calling 541-963-5114 (leave a message) or email us at pastor...@eoni.com.

Worship Covid Protocols Update

 As many of you have probably seen, there have been lots of updates from the CDC about masks especially if you are vaccinated.  The Worship Committee met this afternoon to review what has been coming out of the CDC and the lasted information from the State of Oregon.  Here is the changes/updates that were decided upon in regard to Sunday morning worship:


1) For the time being, masks will still be required for worship.  We do no plan to be the "Are you vaccinated?" police and with the mixing of people who are and are not vaccinated, it is best to leave that protocol in place.  The state is supposed to be coming out with additional guidelines soon since the CDC made their recommendations.  We will be watching for those guidelines in discerning the next steps with masks.

2) After this Sunday, we will be removing the barriers that have roped off every other pew.  Even with the green strings down, we encourage people to social distance.

3) After this Sunday, we will also be placing the hymnals, Bibles, and other items like offering envelopes back into the pews.  Our local library quarantines books for three days before placing them back out for circulation.  The longest I could find any recommendations for not using a book that had been out was 6 days.  Our hymnals do not get used during the week, so the 7 days between services should be adequate.

Friends, we are getting closer!  Be safe, be smart, and remember to continue to glorify God!  Our county numbers continue to remain low and that is because of your diligence.  Stay tuned for further updates.

Blessings,
Pastor Keith and the Worship Committee

Updated Holy Week information

 Dear Church Family,


Due to a health emergency in Keith's brother's family, we need to make some adaptations to our Holy Week/Easter plan.

The Maundy Thursday service will still be held at 5PM tomorrow, April 1 via this Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86509464656?pwd=MG9ZYmo2YjNiZVFIZU9MamttZnM4dz09
If we are unable to attend, Meg Valentine will facilitate this service.

The Good Friday Stations of the Cross will still happen as planned, from 12PM-6PM. We will get more information out, such as a map, probably tomorrow.

In consultation with the Worship Committee there will not be two services. We will now have one service at our regular 9:30AM time for Easter. We don't expect the numbers of attendees to go over 50 for one service. The Easter service will start outside with singing (with masks), and please bring a flower to put on the Blooming Christmas Tree Cross. We will have extra flowers. We will move inside to continue with our celebration of the resurrection of our Lord. After the service, there will be an Easter Egg Hunt for the children.

If you have not done so already, please RSVP for the Easter service. If you have already RSVP-ed, you don't need to do so again, just note the time change! You may use this form https://forms.gle/ZoCsPaU2sRuHrcMGA and we will get your name on the list. Or feel free to call the church at 541-963-5114 or reply to this email.

We apologize for whatever confusion this might have caused. We hope one service will feel more worshipful, while allowing Keith to travel sooner to be with his brother's family in Colorado. Let us know if you have any questions.

We would also appreciate if you kept Keith's brother's family in your prayers.

Blessings,
Keith and Laura

Maundy Thursday Info

 Maundy Thursday is one of my favorite moments in the Christian calendar. The name "Maundy" comes from the Latin word meaning "command," and the service is a remembrance and honoring of Jesus' "new commandment" in John 13:34-35, "love one another as I have loved you." It is also a night of remembering the first Lord's Supper. 


This year, we will host Maundy Thursday on April 1 at 5PM on Zoom. Here is the link: 
Meeting ID: 865 0946 4656
Passcode: 022553

We will read scripture, share stories, and commune in the Lord's Supper. You will need to prepare your worship space at home with bread and juice. We recommend that you print the liturgy out so that you can refer to it during the Zoom event.  Here is the link to the Maundy Thursday liturgy: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CMoyS2QKHwhI0jnpMKwYDl92nGT3SyMmkWCIZkspwTA/edit?usp=sharing

Let us know if you have any questions. We hope to see you Thursday evening! 
In Christ, 
Laura and Keith

Worship Info for 3.28.21

 Dear Friends-Holy Week is almost upon us!  Join us for worship this Palm Sunday either in person or online.  If you are in worship, we will take a picture of you with a palm for a celebration video.  If you are in the area and unable to join us in worship, the palms will be outside both doors of the church for you to pickup.  Please take a picture of yourself and family with a palm and email it to us.  Those out of town, take a picture of yourself with any branch and send it our way.  We need pictures by Thursday, April 1 to make the video.


If you are joining us in-person for worship, we ask that you RSVP.  We do this to help monitor our numbers and have a checklist of names.  If you wake up Sunday morning and think, I want to go to church but I didn't RSVP,  please still come!  There has been plenty of room to spread out.  Remember to wear your mask.  You can call us to RSVP at 541-963-5114 (please leave a message if we aren't there), email us, or use this handy RSVP form:  https://forms.gle/DJHar4oWKqUVWFtn6.

This week's Shalom theme is reconciliation.  Our Lenten journey to the ways of shalom has brought us to the final week — Holy Week. It is a week that starts with the triumphal entry into the Holy City where soon the cheering crowds will become jeering crowds no longer praising Jesus but condemning him. How quickly the tide can turn. And yet, as the week ends with the cross of Good Friday and the tears of grief filling our Holy Saturday, joy will return. Resurrection Sunday comes and we are reminded that in Christ, God was reconciling the world. As we journey through Holy Week exploring the theme of reconciliation, think of the hurts, grudges and hatred that need to be nailed to the cross and laid to rest in a “tomb.” Think about the healing power of reconciliation and where you have seen it in your life.

Please reflect on these questions.  If you are in worship, you may write a word or phrase or other prayer on a ribbon and place it on the Prayer Cross.  The Cross will be placed outside until 4PM if you want to come place a ribbon on the tree then.  For those of you far flung friends, you may email your responses and prayers to us and we will add them to the cross.

This week's Shalom theme is repairing.  In Lent, as we journey to the cross with Jesus, we are reminded that along the way the Lamb of God repaired what was broken — healing bodies and spirits. As we get closer to Holy Week — and to the cross of Good Friday — how can we see the broken world with compassion? How can we stop long enough on the roads we travel to reach out and bring shalom into our communities?

Please reflect on these questions.  If you are in worship, you may write a word or phrase or other prayer on a ribbon and place it on the Prayer Cross.  The Cross will be placed outside until 4PM if you want to come place a ribbon on the tree then.  For those of you far flung friends, you may email your responses and prayers to us and we will add them to the cross.

Blessings,
Keith and Laura
