                 When Will Elim Open?
                         
Update: 8/11/2020

 

 

With some churches in Duluth open for worship the question becomes, when will Elim open for in person worship again? 

Elim's Church Council met on Tuesday, August 11 and took up the question of whether or not to begin reopening the church building.  After much discussion the decision was made to keep the building and grounds closed until at least after their October 13th Council Meeting.  Below are some of their reasons for this decision.

1.     Duluth is presently seeing an uptick in Covid-19 cases.  It seems   
        unwise to reopen the building to activities during an increase.

2.     Duluth schools will be opening to students in a few weeks.  It is still
        unknown whether this will cause an increase in Covid-19 cases among 

        school aged children and if so, whether the schools will decide to close
        again if there is an increase.

3.     Elim still has not received the Electrostatic Disinfectant Sprayer that
        will be used to disinfect hard surfaces.

4.     The health and safety of Elim members and guests are of primary
        importance to the Church Council. 

With this decision the Church Council wants to remind people that the grounds around the church are also closed to groups and individuals.  This includes the parking lots.

If someone has a need to get into the church building or to have access to the driveway they are to contact Pastor Hagen for approval.

These are difficult times and the Church Council knows that there are members who will disagree with the direction the council is leading.  Please join them in prayer for God's guidance as together we go forward into these unprecedented times.
