Breaking news from the Joint Corona Virus
We recognize the need and the desire to have an in person worship experience and to have one as soon as possible. There will be an outdoor worship at First Lutheran Church of Norway Lake on the east side of the building on Sunday, July 5 at 9:30am. An area will be designated for seating and parking. Please bring your own lawn chair or you may remain in your vehicle. Please know the building remains closed and indoor restrooms will not be available (porta-potties will be available). Face coverings are strongly recommended. Please respect the physical distancing guidelines of six feet recommend by the CDC and the MDH. As a reminder, if you are not feeling well please stay home and join us for online worship each Sunday. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing you in person.

Dear Members of the Norway Lake Lutheran Parish,
A message from Norway Lake Parish, Pastor Wayne and the church councils, "We encourage everyone to keep reaching out to one another, including the church and Pastor Wayne, if there are ways we can support you. Please call Pastor Wayne if you're in need of prayer (320-841-1951). We will continue this online worship. Please keep an eye on the willmarradio.com COVID-19 updates and the Parish website (norwaylakeparish.org). Feel free to call or e-mail Pastor Wayne (1-320-841-1951) or the parish office (320-354-4222).
Another gentle reminder, normally we would pass the offering plate at worship, but we are not able to do that. We know that this is a difficult financial time for everyone. Please remember that the Parish operating expenses continue. You can mail a check to the parish office (address below), written to First Lutheran church or East Norway Lake Lutheran church. You can contribute through electronic funds transfer (EFT), and more information on that can be learned by calling the Parish Office.

Below please find a prayer that we hope you find comforting during these changing times:
God, our peace and our strength, we pray for our nation and the world as we face new uncertainties around the coronavirus. Protect the most vulnerable among us, especially all those who are currently sick and in isolation. Grant wisdom, patience and clarity to health care workers, especially as their work caring for others puts them at great risk. Guide us as we consider how best to prepare and respond in our families, in our congregations, in our parish, in our work places and in our communities.
Give us courage to face these days, not with fear but with compassion, concern and acts of service, trusting that you abide with us always – through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
In faith and friendship,
