Due to the current global pandemic crisis and national emergency, the church facilities will be closed for all visitors until further notice. This includes Sundays worship in the building and fellowship activities

The American Lutheran Congregation has suspended all person-to-person contact during the coronavirus outbreak. We continue to serve through online ministry. We are sending out daily emails, the Tuesday Bible study is meeting on Zoom, and we have the Wednesday Lent and Sunday sermons broadcast live on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/alcoslo.

Here are some of the things we will be doing as a congregation, for as long as we are not able to meet together:

1. We will be sending out a daily Biblical encouragement to everybody on the church e-mail list. In this e-mail, we will also be including updates and prayer requests from members of the congregation.
2. Please take the time to call people – especially if you know that someone is isolated or facing a difficult time. Even if we’re not down in Hanson Hall encouraging each other, we can still be talking to each other on the phone.

It is very important that we trust God, seek God’s guidance, and try to care for each other more fully in this difficult time.

Remember these words from Romans 5:1-5:
Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God. And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

Words of hope from our pastor: Three Sermons in One
