COVID 19 Policies

The safety and health of our church family and community is of the utmost importance. This page was created to share information regarding COVID-19 updates, policies and procedures at Lutheran Church of Hope. Please know that as this pandemic continues to be fluid, all information is subject to change as new information, guidelines and mandates are released. If you have any questions, please email chris.gunnare@hopewdm.org.

What we are currently doing to limit exposure:

  • Weekend services continue to be hosted online at HopeOnline.tv Saturday at 5:00 pm and Sunday at 8:00, 9:30, 11:00 am & 5:00 pm
  • Indoor services have been added to our weekend lineup. Masks and social distancing are required, in addition to a number of additional safety precautions.
  • Several online classes and programs are being offered this fall. For those comfortable meeting in person, some classes are available. The same mask and social distancing policies for worship apply to these classes.
  • Masks and social distancing are required by all those who enter a Hope building.
  • Our facilities staff has enhanced their cleaning and sanitization efforts, including between weekend services.
  • Ample handwashing and sanitization stations are available throughout our buildings.
  • No offering baskets or bulletins are being passed at in-person services.
