A Note from FPC:
Friends in Christ,
We will examine how we can continue to grow in our faith throughout all of our lives and even when we can't be together as a church family in times such as this with the coronavirus.
At this time, we will have worship this week in the sanctuary with modifications as we celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism.
* Our passing of the peace will be self-contained, meaning no touching but greeting from your seat without movement.
* The offering will be placed in baskets as you enter and exit and not the traditional passing of plates.
If you have any cold or flu symptoms, please stay home and listen on the radio or livestream.
If you are uncomfortable about being around others, please stay home and listen on the radio or livestream. Listen on WHTX 1570 AM or WHKW 1220 AM, stream on player.listenlive.co56641.
You are welcome to send in your prayer requests up to 9:30 am Sunday morning to Pastor Betty at for us to pray together as a community.
These are common sense techniques that protect each of us and any visitors. We have tissues in each row as well as hand sanitizer. Mr. Skipper, the Church's Facilities Manager has been spraying door handles with a disinfectant in between groups.
The sanctuary is large enough for social distancing if you choose to attend. But again, listen on the radio if you are ill or uncomfortable about being around others.
As always, consult with your physician if you have any medical questions.
Throughout the Scripture, God in the Old Testament and Jesus in the New Testament proclaim, "Do not be afraid." This proclamation holds true for this time, too. We are a people of faith, not panic. Our Lord is with us and has blessed us with common sense, intellect, and reason. Now is the time for us to use these gifts: to have faith, care for ourselves and others, and to be in prayer for all.
FYI-Tuesday's grocery distribution and community lunch will be a take-out experience. People who have already registered in the past for groceries will receive at the door with proof of identification and the meal will be distributed as a take-out. This is our compromise to be pastoral but cautious using common sense.
Please call us at the church office with any questions, comments or if you need to talk during this time of schedule changes. We do reserve the right to change these plans based on updates we receive from the denomination and the government. We are appreciative of your grace.
May the peace of Christ be with you.
Pastor Betty and the Session
