Members and Friends of First Church,

The state of COVID in Connecticut has been rapidly changing lately.  The latest changes seem to be mostly for the better.  Balancing the desires of the congregation with our need to keep everyone safe has been challenging at best.  After much deliberation, the church leadership is proposing the following plan for worship.

  • Starting on June 6th, there will be one service at 10 am in the Sanctuary. 
  • This 10:00 am service will continue to be live streamed on YouTube and Facebook.
  • From July 4 through September 5, we will switch to a typical summer program with a single 9:00 am service, to be held in the air-conditioned Parish Hall.  
  • This 9:00 am service will also be live streamed on YouTube and Facebook.
  • Because of the presence of unvaccinated children and others, we are asking all worshippers to remain masked while inside the building.

Hopefully, these changes will move us closer to something that feels normal.  We encourage you to participate in worship in whichever way you feel most comfortable.

Grace and Peace,

Andrew Irish, Church Council President       The Rev. Dr. James Campbell, Senior Minister
