Updated TLC COVID Guidelines

Our primary objective for opening our church is that God be glorified. Part of this includes not only providing a safe environment for all who worship in our building, but with current constraints, also ensuring a positive experience. We will work to continue promoting a positive experience for those worshiping with us online.
TLC has adapted the following covid-19 guidelines following the CDC and Ohio Health Department lifting of the mask mandate for vaccinated people:
  1. Beginning Monday, May 24, TLC will remove facemask requirements during worship and all church activities for those who have been vaccinated. 
  2. We will encourage those who have not received the covid-19 vaccine to wear facemasks. 
  3. The attached Ohio Health Department does not require children under 10 years old to wear face masks.  Children not old enough to receive the covid-19 vaccine are exempt from wearing masks.
  4. Kings’ Kids will continue to require facemasks for staff and students in the Education Wing of TLC between 6:30am and 6:30pm Monday – Friday.  Please wear a facemask if you need to access the Education Wing of TLC during King’s Kids hours.
  5. We will continue to have hand sanitizer and masks available in the church narthex.
  6. We will continue to have the offering plate placed in the narthex. 
  7. We will remove social distancing requirements in most of the sanctuary pews.  We will keep the social distancing ropes & markers on the pulpit-side pews for those who desire to continue to practice physical distancing.
  8. Hymnals and Bibles have been placed back into sanctuary pews.
  9. Because of research showing that covid-19 is almost 100% transmitted through aerosols and not from surfaces, we will end the practice of spray sanitization in between services. 
  10. We resume the distribution of Holy Communion from the altar rail on Sunday, June 6.  If you are uncomfortable kneeling and touching the rail, please remain standing at the communion rail.
  11. We resume offering both the individual and common cup for communion in the sanctuary.
  12. We will continue the sharing of the peace at the beginning of the service as you are comfortable, i.e. handshakes, fist bumps, elbow bumps, waving, or hugging.
  13. If someone is not wearing a mask, we will assume that he/she has been vaccinated.


Please continue to practice good sense as you consider in-person worship: If you are experiencing a fever, please stay home and worship online. Thank you!

If you would like to continue to provide an offering to support the work of God’s kingdom at TLC and beyond, you can mail your offering envelopes to:

Pending any new developments from the COVID-19 Virus, these are the current worship times:

Sunday Morning Worship


Traditional Service:  8:00 am – 9:05 am

This service frequently follows a divine order of service from the Lutheran Service Book led by either organ or piano.  Every First Sunday of the month, we worship using the old TLH Communion liturgy.

Blended Service:  10:30 am – 11:35 am

This service combines the best of our Lutheran worship liturgy and hymns with newer worship songs led by our praise team.

Holy Communion is served every First and Third Sunday at both services.



Frequently Asked Questions

No matter how you ended up on our site, we are glad you are here. Take some time to get to know us, and we hope to get to know you soon.  If you want to see your life transformed and make a difference in the lives of others, we invite you to Tallmadge Lutheran Church. People have come into Tallmadge Lutheran Church from every walk of life and grown in their relationship with God, found meaningful friendships, and discovered the joy in serving others.
What Should I Expect Sunday Morning?

We have two services on Sunday morning: 8:00 am and 10:30 am with a short fellowship time from 9:00am – 9:20am and a Bible Study time with options available for all ages from 9:20am – 10:15am.   Our services start with a short welcome and worshiping God through song.  We offer both a traditional worship service at 8:00am and a blended worship service at 10:30am.  Our services usually include a time of confession & forgiveness, scripture readings, a children’s message, a time of teaching from the pastor, gathering God’s gifts of His people, prayer, Benediction/Sending and a final song. In between our two services we invite you to stay and get to know people over coffee and snacks. We also invite anyone who would like prayer for anything to stick around and receive prayer.

How Should I Dress?

We are a casual community of people, so feel free to come as you are. If you enjoy dressing up, feel free to do that too.

Am I Expected To Give Money?

It is important to us that guests do not feel pressured to give. The Bible teaches that giving should not be done out of compulsion, but rather a heart of worship. Our primary concern is that you connect with Jesus.

How Can I Learn More?

During any service you can mark “I would like to talk to a pastor” on the fellowship tablets. One of our pastors will reach out to you during the following week.
