Our Response to COVID-19
Connecting and Caring for All
At Christ the Savior Lutheran Church, we seek to connect with God and with others in ways that promote spiritual growth and relationship. These connections have never been more important than during this challenging COVID-19 time.
Because we care for you, it is our intention to reduce the potential for exposure to and spread of the coronavirus within our facility as well as in the surrounding community. Resources from the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”), the State of Indiana, the city of Fishers, and our Indiana/Kentucky synod office have informed our response to COVID-19.
Steps Taken in Response to COVID-19
- Took immediate steps to offer online opportunities when in-person gatherings were suspended.
- Improved live streaming of worship services (coming soon), through a Technology grant received by The Center for Congregations.
- Added additional electronic and text giving opportunities.
- Moved several ongoing groups, such as Confirmation instruction, to an online platform.
- Initiated phone call teams to connect with congregation members.
- Developed Health Assessment policies for returning staff and volunteers, new social distancing protocols and updated cleaning protocols.
- Prepared facility for future re-opening through extensive cleaning, enhanced cleaning protocols and ordering of sanitization supplies.
- Added informational health signage, social distancing markers and readily available hand sanitizer.
- Maintained organization’s essential business functions through remote work and online meetings.
- Continued financial support to local charitable organizations and case-by-case Persons in Need support.

We take very seriously our responsibility to our community and to each other to protect the health and safety of all. We continue to follow guidance from health authorities and local officials to take appropriate preventative measures and to respond appropriately, as the situation evolves.
Thanks to this congregation, for continuing financial support during this challenging time, we continue in our mission to reach others to know, love and serve Christ. We will put forth diligent effort to safely move through this pandemic episode and as always, entrust ourselves into the hands of an ever-faithful God.
"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea..." - Psalm 46:1-2
