Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about St. Mary's Lutheran Church (FAQ):
We practice hospitality, generosity and inclusivity starting with greeters at each worship service, helpful ushers, a worship host and much more! We hope you will feel welcome in our beautiful sanctuary and easy to enter, accessible entry & restrooms.
St. Mary's has 2 parking lots, but currently we are only using the east side parking lot. There are ample handicap marked spaces, as well as lots of other parking.
Many of our members still find "their Sunday best" but we encourage you to come, be present and participate in Christ's Holy Communion "as you are". We want worshiping be a part of your busy weekend.
You are welcome to fill out a communion card, a prayer card, or a "get more infomration" card found in each pew rack in the church; introduce yourself to the greeter or usher, or stop the pastor on your way out. Reaching out via email or calling the office works, too.
Yes! Jesus said "Let the little children come to me!" and we do, too! We have a nursery that you can sit with your little one if they get too squirmy in the pews - but, we encourage children of all ages sit with their families as long as possible. We have a special Kids Connection children's sermonette during Sunday's worship service, too. Ask an usher to guide you to the nursery or to the restrooms.
Love They Neighbor! The St. Mary’s Covid-Taskforce unanimously lifted the facial mask mandate. Effective immediately, FACIAL MASKS ARE OPTIONAL for all fully vaccinated & boosted visitors/members while inside the building until further notice. It is also very important to test for the Covid-19 virus. There are many easy to find, convenient locations where tests are done. They are free and the turn-around time is shorter than before. Remember: it isn’t always a cold or allergies. Be vigilant! This is still a very fluid situation, so please continue to be understanding as this is subject to change without notice as needed.
