COVID-19 RESPONSE I UPDATED June 9, 2021
In-person Worship Procedure Changes
As the COVID positivity rate and hospitalizations in Harford County have continued to fall even with the Governor's lifting of restrictions, we feel we can safely loosen some restrictions regarding worship and ministry team meetings. We are happy to be able resume some of the much loved worship traditions that we have all been missing. We still need to be mindful of those worshipping with us who aren't able to be vaccinated and so, face masks are required in the Sanctuary for worship.
Changes Effective Sunday, June 13th
In addition, Ministry Teams may resume meetings inside the facility. Ministry Team leaders are encouraged to talk with their team and make the decision on how to meet which best accommodates their group's needs. Those not vaccinated should adhere to the 3 foot social distancing and mask guidelines while attending Ministry Team meetings.
As always, if COVID conditions worsen in our community or within the congregation, we may need to adjust these procedures. We are thrilled to be worshipping together in-person again!

Your offerings are needed to help continue the work of LCGS and the wider church.
The mailbox at church is secured and being checked daily for those that prefer to mail offering.
Additionally, there are many ways to give electronically, including eGiving and bill pay through your bank. If you choose to give electronically through eGiving, simply visit our website and click the "give now" button near the closure notice or, text the word "give" to 410-673-4483. You will be taken to a secure platform to set up your one time or re-occurring gift by either ACH or credit card. If possible, ACH debit (which comes directly from your checking or savings' account) is preferred since it requires less processing fees.
