The Wisconsin Church Council is recommending churches move worship to online methods. Lakeside’s Council is recommending online worship for now. For those who need in-person worship to fill their spiritual needs, we will continue to have worship in the church building. The CDC is still highly recommending masks for all. Later in the day on Sundays, the Sunday services will be found on our website at: www.lakesidelutheranwi.com .
Stay safe, everyone!
Letter from The Council President:
Happy New Year members of Lakeside Community Lutheran Church. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
With the new year, comes new beginnings. Many of you have been asking about the process for selecting a new pastor. Per Synod guidelines, the church is not to take any actions toward searching for a new pastor until the outgoing pastor has left. This is done for two reasons. One, to prevent the outgoing pastor from influencing the ultimate selection of the incoming pastor at any level, and two, to have the congregation enjoy the time remaining with the current pastor. This is a proven successful process. After Pastor Bill does his last service, an assigned Interim Pastor will lead the church. The Interim Pastor will have a minimum 6 month assignment with the church, though the selection process of a new pastor will undoubtedly take significantly longer. During this time, the Interim Pastor will help the church with grief and usher in a time of renewal. A Call Committee will also be chosen and they will start the task of finding our next pastor.
The process may seem slow to some of you, but I assure you, before you know it, we will be on the other side of the process and Lakeside Community Lutheran Church will have a great new pastor. Here is to a great 2022!
Ken Busby Jr.

Wearing Masks In Church - From Council:
The CDC is recommending that all people, vaccinated and unvaccinated, should wear masks while indoors. There have been an increasing number of Covid cases in Burnett County. Therefore, the Church Council is "highly recommending that all people, vaccinated and unvaccinated, wear a mask while in the church for any activity". This is effective immediately. The first priority of the Council continues to be the safety of Pastor Bill, Marsha, our entire staff and all members of Lakeside. We will also be temporarily stopping in-person Sunday School until further notice. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
