Worship Outdoor & Zoom
Outdoors Weekly at 9:30 am
We’re excited to return to our usual summer worship schedule with one service at 9:30 am. The new thing this summer—due to COVID—is that the services will be held outdoors in the church parking lot until we feel it's safe to worship in the sanctuary.
The “summer” schedule will run from May 2 to September 5 at 9:30 am. You no longer need to reserve a spot for the services. Just come as you are to praise God! And for your convenience, the restrooms will be open on the first floor of the church before and after the outdoor services.
Attending Outdoor Services
We'll provide bulletins and communion packets (grape juice and gluten-free wafers) for everyone at outdoor worship. To worship safely in person outside during the COVID-19 pandemic, please remember to:
* Bring your own chair (chairs will be available if you need one)
* Park in the middle or south end of the parking lot
* Wear a mask at all times, even if you’re fully vaccinated
* Stay physically distanced
In the event of rain, we will cancel the outdoor service and instead share it live on Zoom at 9:30 am. (See the link below.)

Madison’s 12th Annual Ride the
Sunday, June 6
To help disperse participation this year’s Ride the Drive will be held simultaneously at four different Madison parks. The east side location will be at Kennedy Park, approximately 2-3 miles from church, depending on the route. Join members of Lake Edge in our first bike adventure in 2021. We will gather in the church parking lot and bike over to Kennedy Park, or you may opt to join us at the park. Roads will be closed around the park and participants may stroll, roll, pedal or glide along the less than 3-mile route in this free event. Stay tuned to future e-news and the June Dialogue for our departure time from the church parking lot. The event runs from 9 a.m. – 1p.m.

LWR Personal Care Kits
It is that time of year when we ask our Lake Edge Lutheran families to help and consider collecting items for our Lutheran World Relief Care Kits. Many families throughout the world must flee to refugee camps or other places of safety. Cleanliness certainly helps an individual feel more human. The following is the five items in a kit:
* Bath Towel (20x40 to 52x27) in dark colors
* Nail clippers
* Tooth Brush (adult size only)
* Comb (sturdy)
* Soap (Bath size 4oz to 5oz, two bars per kit)
Any items at anytime are welcomed.
There is a secure drop-off bin near the church entrance where you can drop off donation items for the World Relief Personal Care Kits 24/7. Just place in the outside bin and they will be collected. Thank you for helping those in need! Sharon Kreul
Centering Prayer: Zoom
