COVID-19 Resources


NC Synod Shared Worship is happening each Sunday three ways:

A synod congregation will share their livestream worship on the synod's Facebook page. Worship is shared this week—Lent 1, Sunday, February 21—by Mt. Olive, Hickory, at 9:30 a.m. Watch it live or watch the recording at your convenience.

A recorded sermon will be provided by a bishop's staff person each week for rostered ministers taking time off.  Download the sermon each week (available on Wednesdays by noon).

The bishop's staff recorded sermon from each week will be available by phone. Call toll-free: 833-924-1988 and press 1 to listen.

Re-Gathering Guidelines

The synod's Re-Gathering Task Force under the direction of the NC Synod Council has been faithfully considering guidelines for congregational life in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Taking into account Governor Cooper's Executive Orders, these guidelines are based on Executive Order #189 for Modified Stay-at-Home Order, effective through February 28, 2021.
