We have become aware that there has been a surge in COVID-19 Omicron virus infections. Indeed, our own Pastor has been infected again even though she’s had the vaccinations and the booster. Therefore, out of an abundance of caution, we are canceling in person worship at Mount Nebo Lutheran through the month of January.

We will, however, maintain our worship presence via YouTube every week. We will reevaluate at the end of January. God calls us to love God, and to love one another. Therefore we must take appropriate action to protect our members and friends.

We pray God‘s blessing for all, and we ask everyone to be in prayer as we move forward. Happy new year to you all!

Grace & Shalom,

Mike Sathe
Council President
Video Message from Pastor Christine
Friends of Rapidan Lutheran Parish,
Please check out this video created by Pastor Christine to find out more about a new initiative called "As the Spirit Moves". This simple email initiative is made to connect us more deeply to God's word and to be able to easily reach out to our community with the message of God's love. Our hope and prayer is that, through this initiative, we will (eventually) grow, both in depth of faith and in membership.
After watching the short video, feel free to contact Pastor Christine with your questions, thoughts, and ideas.
