Virtual Christmas Concert
Several ensembles will be recording a few of their recent musical works to celebrate the Christmas Season! We will compile and share these offerings for a Virtual Concert that will be posted on the Minnekirken website for all to enjoy throughout the season. Stay tuned for more information.
Minnekirken is open for “in person worship” every Sunday.
Guidelines to be observed:
Doors will be opened at 10:40 a.m. Please enter via the back door. The front door will be locked at all times. Remain in your vehicle until doors are opened.
Service bulletins and communion packages will be on a table in the entryway, as well as the offering basket:
There will be handouts for announcements + scripture readings
Pick up a liturgy booklet and a communion package
Hymnals will be in the pews
When you enter the sanctuary, the designated pews will be marked with Norwegian flags, and seats will be marked 10 feet apart. This does not apply to families, who may sit together as usual.
Music will be played for worship. However, since singing exponentially increases the risk of spreading infection, please do not sing aloud (meditate, hum, reflect, pray, etc.) when joining the service in person.
Please wear a mask at all times (except when speaking if you are a reader). You may take it down to receive communion and put it back on after receiving.
We will continue to offer “live streaming” online worship options for those who choose to attend via Facebook Live and Zoom
Services will be continue to be offered online until further notice. On Sundays when in-person worship is available, you may still use the links below to join us remotely.
