EBEN-EZER LUTHERAN WORSHIP SCHEDULE
WE CONTINUE TO OFFER INDOOR SERVICES IN THE SANCTUARY AT EBEN-EZER LUTHERAN EACH SUNDAY AT 8:30 AM.
WE ARE BROADCASTING THE SERVICES ON FM RADIO FOR THOSE WHO WISH TO REMAIN OUTDOORS IN THEIR CARS OR TRUCKS.
WE CELEBRATE HOLY COMMUNION ON THE 2ND AND 4TH SUNDAY OF THE MONTH BOTH INDOORS AND OUTDOORS
EVERYONE IS ENCOURAGED TO NOT ATTEND SERVICES IF YOU ARE ILL OR HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO THE CORONA VIRUS RECENTLY
We continue to monitor the situation with the Corona Virus daily and will make final decisions based on safety factors as we go along.
For Indoor Worship Services we need to exercise extreme caution in the number of people allowed inside, social distancing in the building, and restrict the use of hymnals, bulletins, food and drinks. Most importantly –those people who are over 65 years of age and those who have health issues are encouraged to attend services outdoors by tuning into the FM radio.
Please bear with these plans and the leadership of the congregation. If things change, we can and will alter plans to reflect changing conditions.
Thank you, Pastor Ken
EBEN-EZER LUTHERAN Guidelines for the INDOOR Worship Services:
We will be reviewing the situation as we go along. We want to err on the side of caution so that everyone is safe! We certainly do not want to expose anyone to the risk of getting infected.
I would invite you to keep up with the latest information that we have through our website: www.ebenezerbrenham.com or through our Facebook pages by searching on Facebook for: Eben-Ezer Lutheran Church. I also have my personal Facebook page which you may access by searching for: Ken Weiss. Each of these platforms is being updated often, as needed. If you, or others, do not have internet access, please read this Newsletter thoroughly and help others to be informed as to the plans for the coming days.
We want everyone to be safe! Please call me if you have needs or concerns. God bless you all! Stay in touch! Let us know how you are doing! Peace, Pastor Ken
WEEKLY SUNDAY WORSHIP ON FACEBOOK AT 10:00 AM.
GO TO THE EBEN-EZER lutheran church FACEBOOK PAGE
Please join us each Sunday at 10:00 am for a Facebook Worship Service. I will be leading this worship on the Eben-Ezer Lutheran Church Facebook page. This video worship will remain on Facebook so that you may join in this time of worship later, as your schedule permits. There will be a bulletin posted for each Sunday on the Eben-Ezer website: www.ebenezerbrenham.com The service will also be available on my personal Facebook page. Search for: Ken Weiss.
WORSHIP SERVICE ON KWHI RADIO AT 1:30 PM ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON
KWHI RADIO – 12.80 AM AND 101.7 FM
Our worship service is broadcast on KWHI radio at 1:30 pm on Sunday afternoons. Please join us for worship and invite others to tune in also, especially those who do not have internet or Facebook access and are not able to watch the Facebook Worship at 10:00 am. There will be a bulletin posted for each Sunday on the Eben-Ezer website: www.ebenezerbrenham.com
HOLY COMMUNION ON FACEBOOK WORSHIP AT 10:00 AM AND ON THE RADIO ON KWHI AT 1:30 PM ON THE 2ND AND 4TH SUNDAYS OF THE MONTH
We are celebrating Holy Communion on both the Facebook Worship at 10:00 am and the Radio Worship on KWHI at 1:30 pm on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, which is our regular Holy Communion schedule for worship.
If you would like to take Holy Communion, I invite you to have some wine or grape juice and bread or crackers of any kind available. I would also invite you to set up a small worship area in your home. You can do this by placing a cross there if you have one available and also by lighting a candle, if you can do this safely. If not – that is OK. God knows your situation and understands and is present with you in all circumstances.
During the service I will lead the Holy Communion Liturgy and give instructions for celebrating Holy Communion in your home. There will also be a bulletin available on the Eben-Ezer church website if you would like to print that out to follow along with the service. That website is: www.ebenezerbrenham.com
This is very different from what we normally do but we are living in very different times from just a few months ago. It is theologically appropriate and meaningful to celebrate Holy Communion in this manner. However, celebrating Holy Communion is left up to each individual, just as it is when we celebrate Holy Communion in our sanctuary at church. Peace, Pastor Ken

Peace, Pastor Kence, Pastor Ken
