Announcements
ALC configured a “Reopening Team” to review directives from the MN Department of Health, local authorities, The Southwest MN Synod, The Evangelical Lutheran Church, and other sources to prepare a way forward for our congregation. Please consider taking this survey to provide feedback and input from our congregation for moving forward. This survey is also available on our What’s Up at ALC Email, through our ALC Facebook page, and in our June Messenger. You may also print out this survey and drop it off at the church parking lot entry doors or mail it to the church office at 906 Prospect Ave, PO Box 188, Windom, MN 56101. (Please take this survey only one time per person and submit it or mail it to the church office by Friday June 5th) Click on the link below to take this survey: ALC Congregation Survey (CLICK HERE)
 

Covid-19 Assistance Fund Update While originally formed to help one time with financial assistance the committee thought that there would continue to be a need for financial assistance because of this pandemic.  We also realize that some people have not received their stimulus check to even have had the opportunity to donate it.  Therefore we are continuing to take applications and donations.  The new due date for applications is June 18thThank you ALC members!

ALC invites you to wear Red on Sunday, May 31st to help celebrate Pentecost Sunday.

When will ALC open back up?  We never closed!  We are the Church, the body of Christ, in the building or in our daily lives.  We recognize that COVID-19 continues to be a serious health threat to our community. For this reason, Worship continues on-line and by the radio until further notice.  On May 23rd, new guidelines for faith communities were issued by the state of MN allowing us to gather at 25% capacity.  The ALC “Reopening Team” is reviewing these guidelines along with directives from the Southwest MN Synod, and the ELCA to prepare a way forward. The ALC Council meets on June 9th to receive recommendations.  In the meantime, your congregation’s staff and leadership are here for you!   Don’t hesitate to call, stop by, or be in touch.   Your pastors are facilitating funerals, hospital visits, and other areas of pastoral care. 

Welcome!

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth should change…  The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.  Psalm 46

While we are not together in person, or collecting a regular offering, the ministry of our congregation continues!  We are hoping not to fall behind in meeting our expenses.   Check out on-line giving by clicking on our give tab or mail in your offering to PO Box 188, Windom.
