Covid Pandemic 2010 & 2021
When Covid 19 was declared a worldwide pandemic we knew things would be quickly changing. The state of Michigan declared a "shut down" Friday, March 13, 2020. The Food Pantry distribution was made quickly and people were told the Pantry would be closed until further notice. Sunday worship was cancelled. Schools and non-essential businesses closed.
The community needed the Food Pantry, it soon reopened with a younger set of volunteers. In partnership with the Inner City Youth Group, food was distributed several days each week. Sunday worship was the sermon posted on Facebook and Coffee Hour was on Zoom. By winter of 2021, we started to have monthly drive-in worship services in the parking lot. With vaccines available, we hoped to return to a more normal way of life.
This page is to keep the members and friends of Iroquois Ave. Christ Lutheran informed on how the
church has reacted, and may continue to react, to the pandemic in worship, service, fellowship and other ways. Check our Facebook page for the most recent updates.
