Welcome To Bay View Lutheran Church
This is Christ’s church.
There is a place for you here.
We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person – questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God’s work in Christ’s name for the life of the world.
We are a member of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America).
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
Now that Governor Evers has issued the “stay at home” order, we have more changes at Bay View Lutheran Church:
1. All of the church staff are now primarily working from home. There are a few occasions when one of them has to go into the church building, but that needs to be kept to a minimum.
2. We are asking that everyone else obey the governor’s instructions and stay home, also. Please do not enter the church building, even if you have a key, until the “stay at home” order is lifted.
3. We will continue to record worship and post it on Facebook and the church website. I recorded the service for March 29 in our sanctuary on Monday, March 23. However, in order to follow the order, Pastor Beth will be recording worship from home. She apologizes in advance to you for her pups and cat which may make appearances from time to time.
4. Even though the President said he would like to have churches back open by Easter, Pastor Beth doesn’t believe that will be a safe reality. We will not have worship in the sanctuary again until it is safe to do so. Whatever Sunday we end up back in the sanctuary we will have a big Easter celebration.
5. We had already placed an order for Palm Sunday and were unable to cancel the order. Therefore, palms will be left outside the main doors on Friday, April 3, for you to drive up and pick up. Please practice social distancing and don’t congregate there.

A Message from the Stewardship Committee:
It’s time to step up because we can’t step out. Bay View Lutheran Church, in consideration of the health of its members, is discontinuing worship for the time being. However, the church will still incur monthly bills. Without services, the weekly collection will be zero. Please be mindful and generous as you think about your church in this difficult time. You can donate through the website, or you can send a check to church each week or month. You could give a good-sized donation once, or once in a while. Continue to pray for Bay View Lutheran Church, its staff and its members. We can all rejoice together when the health danger passes and we meet again in church. Till then, keep praying-and keep giving.
