Laingsburg UMC Response andPrecautions Related to COVID-19 Concerns
Precautions currently in effect
As a church, we believe that encouraging healthy living is a vital part of our ministry, as is providing a healthy place to gather, serve, and worship. As more and more information is coming to light regarding COVID-19, and as public response recommendations are being made via health officials, Laingsburg UMC wants to remain proactive and in accordance with proper recommendations. As a church, we will remain committed to taking appropriate and reasonable precautions to keep our congregation and community as safe and healthy as possible.
As of November 17, 2020, we have returned to only on-line Sunday morning worship in accordance with our Church Reopening Plan. We would encourage your participation. Our worship service can be found on Facebook beginning at 10am on Sundays. Simply go to the Laingsburg UMC Facebook page or to our YouTube Channel to watch and participate.
Effective November 17, 2020, all in-person activities are suspended.
The church office is open Monday-Thursday from 9:30 am-1:30 pm. For the safety of our staff, the building is locked. Please call the office (651-5531) if you need to drop off something and Karolyn will meet you at the ramp door.
With the exception of the Laingsburg Area Food Bank (which will continue to hold regular hours) and AA, renters and community groups who regularly use the building are asked to refrain from holding their events until further notification is given.
The Church Leadership Team remains committed to maintaining the safety and well-being of our church members and the community, and will continue to reevaluate our reopening plan at their monthly meetings.
If you have a pastoral emergency, please call the parsonage, 517 651-5266.
We recognize that without in-person worship during this unusual time, the church's regular income through your tithes, offerings, and donations may decrease. Please know that your regular giving is still depended upon in order to ensure that salaries, utilities, and other ministry-related financial obligations are met on time. And so, please consider one of these means of continued giving:
You can mail a check to the church via US Postal Services.
You can also give using our electronic/online giving tool (see "Donate/Give" button at the top).
We appreciate your patience and understanding in this unusual time.
