—Worship and All Church Events Cancelled—
Our worship service and all church events continue to be cancelled until further notice. However, the church council has recently agreed upon a phasing-in plan for entering into our worship space again. To view that plan please see below.
At Acacia Park, we invite you to . . .
CONNECT with others as part of a community that strives to practice forgiveness, grace, and genuine hospitality;
WONDER with us at the mystery that is God, a mystery to be experienced rather than solved;
CELEBRATE with us, giving thanks for God’s blessings to us and presence in us;
SHARE your gifts and passions to care for others in the community; share your burdens and experience the healing love of Christ.
Acacia Park’s Phasing in of Worship Plan
The council of Acacia Park Lutheran Church agreed upon the following outline for entering into the worship space again. As businesses and organizations are beginning to discuss ways for it to be safe while gathering together, Acacia Park wants to listen to the guidance of Governor Pritzker and science. As our knowledge of Covid-19 is changing and adapting on a nearly daily basis, this plan will also adapt and change. (Last update 5/19/2020)
