OUR RESPONSE

MAY 27, 2020

The FPC Session and Diaconate met on Tuesday, May 26, via Zoom. It was decided that we will not meet for in-person worship during the month of June.

However, we will begin approving small gatherings of ten or fewer people to be held under proper distancing and safe conditions (generally outdoor) as requests are made and the need is reasonable. Your staff is coming up with great ideas for these gatherings and we will be sharing with you as the plans are finalized.


MAY 15, 2020

As our society begins to reopen, please be assured your staff and Session are hard at work making plans to reintroduce in-person ministry when it becomes safe to begin that gradual process. At this time, we will continue our current practices of online ministry and worship.

At the May meeting of Session, the Health Committee will advise on the factors to be considered. We will be taking a cautious approach, wanting to ensure to the best of our ability, that we protect the most vulnerable in our community. We are also consulting Presbytery, sister congregations, and guidelines from the CDC and local government agencies as to the timing and nature of returning together. The safety of our congregation is of the utmost importance to us, and we hope you understand that in-person worship will be included in the last phase of our reopening process.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me. I pray God’s presence and the peace of Christ be with you and all you love in this time.

Peace,
Tom
