Welcome back to worship

Welcome to Worship at Faith Lutheran Church

Here are a few things you’ll need to know as we gather inside for worship.

  • Masks:Following Washington State Governor Jay Inslee’s lifting of the indoor mask mandate effective March 12, 2022, masks will no longer be required indoors at Faith Lutheran Church for Sunday worship. You are welcome to continue to wear a mask if you prefer. The Council appreciates everyone’s understanding and welcome of all who worship here, with masks or without.
    Our desire is that all feel safe and comfortable while worshipping together. To that end, keep in mind that we have installed air purifiers on five furnaces in the building, including the one that services the sanctuary. Additionally, there is seating in the Narthex if you’d prefer where a TV screen with audio has a display of the worship space. Please be aware that Faith Lutheran School staff and students are continuing to wear masks since their children are not yet eligible for vaccinations.
  • Feeling sick:  Please self-screen, noting any COVID symptoms that you or a family member may be experiencing. If you or a family member at your home are feeling sick, or have a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher, please stay home. Worship is available online or by dial-in
  • Bulletins: Everything you will need to worship is included in a printed bulletin.  Although Bibles and hymnals have been left in the pews, you won’t be needing them.  The order of worship will not be projected on the screen.
  • Holy Communion: The sacrament will be celebrated each week.  Holy Communion pre-packed kits are available with grape juice and a wafer.  The juice is available with a gluten free cracker for those who require that option.  You will pick up the kit when entering church and keep it with you until the Meal is celebrated.  Once the presider gives you the Invitation, you can eat the wafer and drink from the cup while remaining in your pew.  
  • Singing:   Please sing at your heart’s content, keeping your mask on if you are wearing it.  Worship cantors may be singing without a mask, but are at least 15’ from those seated in the assembly.  
  • Offering:  Plates will be set out at the back of the sanctuary and in the Narthex.  Please place any gifts you bring in the plates.  No offering plates will be passed around during worship.  Giving electronically is available through the website, under “Give.”
  • Worship streaming, recording, and dial-in:  The worship service will be recorded to be viewed anytime from our website or YouTube channelLive streaming will also occur on Sunday mornings as well as the dial-in option for audio 425-535-9449).  
  • Nursery:  At this time due to COVID, we are not opening the nursery.  Parents and kids are welcome to worship with us.  Some activities are available for kids, please ask the ushers.
