A message for all Triumphant Cross Lutheran friends, families, and those in our local community regarding COVID-19.

We begin to see signs of businesses opening their doors and people emerging from quarantine. Please know that the Council of Triumphant Cross are listening very carefully to the advice from state and federal officials, the CDC, our Bishop’s office and the national office of the ELCA.  The safety of our community of faith is paramount.  We will continue to use online and virtual platforms (e.g. Zoom), along with tailgate worship, weather permitting.  We have formulated safe practices that will help bring us together in person without putting anyone at unnecessary risk.  All posted changes are sent out via the weekly newsletter. 

Council & Congregation Updates

  • The expectation is that we will continue to Zoom and Tailgate Worship, with the indoor worship space remaining closed.  Due to the enduring uncertainty of the pandemic, as well as the importance of everyone’s safety, we plan to keep the building closed for large worship and education gatherings for now.
  • Plans for alternatives to Sunday School, Adult Education, and Confirmation are outlined in the weekly newsletter.  
  • The fellowship hall has been opened for AA to use following strict coronavirus protocols drafted by the Executive Team (including limit on number of in-person participants, social distancing/seating, restrictions on room/restroom use, mask requirements, & sanitizing protocols).  
  • The building is still closed to other outside groups, rentals, etc.
  • Worship, Bible study, and team ministry meetings will continue to take place online via Zoom and other media platforms. 
  • Tailgate worship will occur bi-weekly on Sundays, weather permitting.
  • The food pantry will continue to distribute food to clients with safety protocols to protect both clients and volunteers.  
  • Despite the difficulties the pandemic presents, we are still maintaining healthy stewardship.  Thank you for your continued support of Triumphant Cross!
  • Our office is staffed Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am to 1 pm. Phone and email are the best ways of reaching the office. If you need to come in, please inform the office and respect social distancing for safety. 
  • Our congregational retreat at Camp Calumet has been cancelled.  The rescheduled retreat date is August 17-19, 2021.
