Our world is in the midst of a public health emergency, and as people of faith it’s our responsibility to balance our fear with faith, action and information. Here are some precautions that we are taking and currently considering for the days ahead to minimize the spread of disease and fear.
Sunday: Online Worship
Beginning March 22nd, Pastors Lawrence and Eliot, along with Daniel, our minister of music, will coordinate each week to prepare a virtual and interactive worship experience for the community. The service will be from 10am-10:30am and be broadcasted to Facebook https://www.facebook.com/LindenHillsUCC/ and archived on both Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pg/LindenHillsUCC/videos/ and our church’s Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtpeLtq4nfUMzC61lIOTTJQ.

Friday: Linden Tree
With the majority of in person events being either canceled or held online, each week’s Linden Tree e-newsletter will contain updates and information as it relates to our church and community. If you do not receive the Linden Tree, please email Alex in the church office at office@Lhucc.org
Our church deacons and pastors will call and visit those who cannot participate online and those who are our most vulnerable to check in with them and see if there are any needs.
We have a number of ways to share our prayers and concerns as a church. You can email care@Lhucc.org; you can share them in our private Facebook Prayer Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/497807747238113/; and you can share them with a pastor by calling the church office at 612-927-4603 or emailing PastorLawrence@Lhucc.org
