Worship inside the sanctuary on Sunday mornings at 9:15am have been temporarily suspended.

Online/virtual services are safest at this time. We understand everyone is anxious to be together, but we are listening to our Minnesota Department of Health adviser’s message that if you gather with others at this time, you can expect to be exposed to the virus. The safety of our Elim community is our top priority.
