Our apology that at the start of Pastor Kolterjahn's sermon the camera did not immediately follow him to the front of the altar area.  You will be able to hear his voice for the entire sermon - it will just take a minute to see him for the rest of his message.  Thank you for your understanding.

From July 7 - 28, the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Medical & Community Health team will be at Beautiful Savior conducting community antibody testing.  This is a wonderful opportunity for our congregation to be a partner in helping address the ongoing CoVid 19 health issue. It speaks well of our congregation and you, our members, that we have been selected and asked to host this important work.
If you drive by church in the next few weeks, you may see the screening taking place in our church parking lot.  No one with CoVid or with symptoms will be allowed in our church facility.  The team from UW-M is working around our schedule of services, meetings and Bible class.

Public worship at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church has resumed in a modified form.  Please read the information below, and see our home page for full details on how we will be safely worshiping and communing together over the next several weeks.

We are holding seven public worship services each week, running throughout the month of June.  In Christian love for all our members and worshipers, and with an abundance of care for everyone’s health and well-being: 

§  One of the services (Tuesday 3:30 pm) is only for people who have high risk factors. It is limited to 25 worshipers and face masks are required.

§  Two other services (Saturday at 3:30 pm and Sunday at 8:00 am) are open for up to 50 worshipers at each service and face masks are required.

§  The other four services are also open for up to 50 worshipers at each service, and face masks are optional.

     Tuesday         3:30 pm                    25 people      high risk members only; face masks required

     Tuesday         6:00 pm                    50 people      face masks optional

     Saturday        3:30 pm                    50 people      face masks required

     Saturday        5:00 pm                    50 people      face masks optional

     Sunday          8:00 am                    50 people      face masks required

     Sunday          9:30 am **                50 people      face masks optional

     Sunday          11:00 am **              50 people      face masks optional

** Please note that beginning Sunday, July 12, our Sunday morning service times will change to 8:00 am, 9:15 am and 10:30 am.

If you have any questions about attending any of the services listed above, please contact Mike Pfeifer either by email ( mike_pfeifer@beautifulsavior.com ) or call 920-676-2702 to sign up for a service.  

A reminder that if you or an immediate family member is ill, experiencing CoVid 19 symptoms, or does not feel comfortable being in a public worship service, please remain home.  We will continue to have our worship services online weekly.

Our in-person services will be abbreviated to allow us time to clean our worship area, washrooms, entrances and exits after each service. For that reason, we ask that you please do not enter church until 10 minutes before your service begins, and leave the building after being dismissed at the end of your service.

Please enter the church by the south side doors only. These are the glass doors by the largest section of our parking lot.  Weather permitting, they will be propped open.

We have removed over 200 chairs from our worship area to create as much space for social distancing as possible ( please see two photos below this email )

There will be no Greeters or Ushers at this time.  In addition, our Nursery and Church Office will be closed.

Collection plates will be set out by the entrance and exit doors for offerings.

The entire service will be displayed on our screens, with no printed worship folders or announcement packets. At the recommendation of medical personnel, there will be no singing in our services at this time.

We also will be celebrating Lord’s Supper in the services during the second and fourth weeks of this month.  We will not be placing the bread and wine directly in your hands.  Individual serving tables will be placed by each person or family, and their bread and wine will be distributed to them there.  Pastor will explain the process at the beginning of distribution.

While it has been many weeks since we’ve been able to gather together in God’s house, his Word has continued to be active in the hearts and lives of all of us and of fellow Christians throughout the world!  May we continue to thank and worship him, whether together in person at church or together in spirit at home.

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Leon Ehlert

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some members have asked if they can still continue to support God's Kingdom work through a financial gift.   We are working with Vanco, a national service which works with thousands of churches and organizations in providing electronic giving alternatives. You will find a "button" at the bottom of this home page if you wish to make either a one-time donation, or if you wish to set up a recurring gift. If you have any questions with this new option, please contact us at our church office (499-7405) or email to: mike_pfeifer@beautifulsavior.com  Thank you.
