New Worship Guidelines

Due to the updated CDC guidelines, masking will be optional in all FPC spaces for those persons over 12 years of age who are fully vaccinated. The Task Force met recently and reflected on how far we have come and gave thanks for the support of our faith community. Click here to read the updated guidelines.

Also, registration is no longer required to attend Worship Services. We will continue to observe social distancing for now. To assist you we will place a blue sign on the end of each pew indicating that that end of the pew is open for seating. Before you select a seat, make sure there is room on the pew to keep adequate distance from other members that may be seated on the pew in front or behind the pew you have chosen.
