Pandemic Information - First Presbyterian Church
First Presbyterian Church has a re-opening committee that is reviewing information and making preparations for reopening the church. This committee makes recommendations to Session on reopening the church and other activities. The primary directive of the committee is the safety of everyone involved.
We're planning on re-opening for services beginning November 29, the first Sunday of Advent. It will be great to be back together!
Further information and instructions will be coming your way and yes there are protocols that we all must follow – like wearing masks and social distancing. Stay tuned for details!
And even before November 29, two things can happen now. First, individuals may come into the sanctuary for private prayer and meditation. Please phone ahead for your visit. The sanctuary will be available Mondays through Thursdays from 10:00 to 12:00 (noon). Pastor Tom or Jon will greet you at the south entrance and go over our safety measures and welcome you!
The church is also now open for group meetings of 12 persons or less. Meetings should be scheduled with Nancy in the church office. A leader for the group needs to be designated and will need to communicate to the group about our safety measures. The group can also help the church by performing sanitation procedures after the meeting.
We move forward as a church family carefully and prayerfully. We all will need to respect others' personal decisions about re-entering the church.
Current Status: Worshiping via Live Steam. On-line Sunday school and Bible study opportunities continue. The church is available for small groups.
