It’s Back to Church Time!
“I rejoiced when they said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord.’” (Psalm 122:1)
On Sunday, September 6, we will be re-opening our building on a very limited basis. We will start for public worship @ 10:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary and Christian Education @ 9:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. The rest of the building will remain closed to outside groups. FCUCC based committees and groups are welcome to use the building as long as they schedule their meeting through the church office and maintain established health precautions.
To Safely Open:
1. We will be insisting on practicing established re-opening protocols for houses of worship. These health precautions are designed to keep everyone safe who enters to study and worship and will include:
-Temperatures will be taken at the door.
-Masks will be provided for those who do not have one of their own.
-Social distancing will be observed inside the building - ushers will help to seat individuals and family units at least 6 feet away from one another.
-Hand sanitizer and surface sanitizer will be provided at the door and various places throughout church.
Please be sure to thank to our Re-Open the Church Committee for all their efforts and energy to prepare a safe space for us all! (Jan Nowlen, Lois Darrow, Rick Darrow, Constance Popken, and Nan Cord)
2. Worship will be a little different:
-We will share in communion but each person will receive the cup and bread in an individual, prewrapped container.
-There will be no nursery or childcare provided at this time but children are free to sit with their family
-There will be no congregational singing, but you can humm all you want behind that mask!
-There will be no “Passing of the Peace” but we will greet and welcome each other in Love!
-We will enter and exit a little more orderly than we are used to and we will be spread out across the sanctuary to maintain social distancing.
We will begin Live Streaming of our worship services. This is a great new resource we now have at our disposal. So if you can’t make it to worship in the building, then please join us on Sunday morning from home or wherever you are.
And a huge thanks are in order to the Tech Team who got this project done!
We will welcome Pastor Mike as he leads his first worship service with us.
Tiffany will be joining Jan Nowlen at the door to greet everyone and screen temperatures.
We excitedly welcome you back in the doors, as we worship together as safely as possible.
