First Baptist Church:
For the next 4 weeks, our Sunday morning service is cancelled (March 22, 29, April 5 & 12) in
addition to suspending other activities held in our church building (Sunday School, Ignite,
Crossfire, Quest Kids, and all other meetings & events) until at least April 13 (Monday), However, starting this Sunday, a recorded version of Pastor Matt Stacey's weekly message will be available to view via the church website: fbclongprairie.org. Starting next Sunday, March 29, we are hoping to offer a live streaming worship service that includes both music and the

River of Life Church in Long Prairie
Starting this Sunday, March 22, we will temporarily be cancelling the in-person meeting together for our normal Sunday morning services.
The Pastoral staff has prayerfully put together a plan for a full online experience for you and your family. We will sing; we will pray; we will laugh; we will study the Bible; we will experience God together! We are launching the online experience this Sunday morning at 10am sharp!
This first week, there will be two places online that you can experience church with us. The first will be Facebook live. With Facebook, we have the opportunity to interact with others who are watching with you and your family. This has definite benefits in the areas of prayer, fellowship, and community. We will begin the video stream at 9:50am, with the service starting promptly at 10am and that can be found on the RLC Facebook pages (both Sauk Centre and Long Prairie).
The second place you can experience church with us can be found on our church website rlcmn.church/watch. We will broadcast the service online at 10am on Sunday morning for you. There will also be links you can click to submit prayer requests, give online, or contact one of the pastors.
Although church will not look or feel the same for the next few weeks, our
Trinity Lutheran Church of Long Prairie will be cancelling worship and all events until April 5th.
Our plan is to have midweek lenten services recorded and aired on the radio at their usual Wednesday night spot.
Trinity Lutheran Church of Long Prairie intends to livestream a worship service at 9AM on Sundays on YouTube.
Finally, at 5PM today, Tue. March 17th, the church will close its doors to the public. Only staff of Trinity, elected leaders of Trinity, and parents/children of the Trinity Learning Center will be allowed access.
