Greetings, members and visitors of Risen Savior Evangelical Lutheran Church! Thank you to all of you who have worshipped with us both in person and online through our video services. It is such a blessing to be able to do so.
We would like to let you know of an update to the in-person guidelines in light of the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in the Austin, Texas, area; the subsequent orders by Travis County Judge Biscoe; and the recommendation of our Church Council.
At this time, we do request that if you choose to visit us in person, please wear a mask when entering the church until you are at your seat in the sanctuary. Once you are seated, you may remove it for the service. When the service is over and everyone is dismissed, we request that you then replace your mask until you are outside the building, at which time you are then free to do as you choose.
Thank you so much for honoring this request. If you do not have a mask, we have several ladies in the congregation who are making them, and we would be happy to put you in contact with them to see if they can help you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. There are also a few disposable masks available at the entrance. Please also feel free to use the hand sanitizer at the entrance as often as you like.
We hope that you will continue to worship with us in person, but we understand that these are unusual times. We are so happy to now have the ability to reach our members and friends through video services. Be sure to check out the Sermons page to find the appropriate links to those services if you would like to visit us online.
Stay safe and well, and may God continue to give you peace and comfort.
Update 7/3/2020: Here is Governor Abbott’s new order regarding masks and Mayor Adler’s new Stay Home order. These updated guidelines for our services should still be adequate for both orders. Please stay safe, and be responsible.
Update 8/15/2020: Travis County Judge Briscoe extended the order regarding masks and gatherings to December 15, 2020.
Encourage those who are discouraged, help those who are weak, and be patient with everyone. 15 See to it that no one repays evil with evil, but instead, always strive to do good to each other and to everyone else.
16 Rejoice always. 17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In everything give thanks. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5 (EHV)
