Council Minute Highlights: November, 2020

Call to Order: 6:30
Wayne Kurth explained the purpose of the call meeting “Plans for future services” the topic of the evening. All other items were dismissed on the regular agenda.

In short, since Covid-19 started to rise in the area and the schools were in remote learning and the limit of only ten persons in a gathering was mandated, it just seemed that to heat the church, provide someone to be at the door to greet and take temps, have a organist, sound technician, then the number of persons allowed to attend service would be 5. The most feasible decision would be to go remote. Previously Council had decided that if the schools went remote then Good Shepherd would no longer have in-person service until the limit would go back up by the State of Illinois Mitigating Order. It would save the church money not having to have the heat as high and less electricity would be used.

The use of the FM radio for services, the use of streaming through Facebook would be utilized for future services, until the COVID-19 is under control. Council was in agreement on this point of discussion for future services.

The question was then should the use of the phone be another way to get the service out to those who do not have a computer/internet service to watch and listen to the service whether in real time or a few hours later. This was not tabled but that decision would be after a few more test runs.The phone meeting was concluded by saying the Lord’s Prayer over the phone together.
