FIRST CHURCH IS OPEN FOR WORSHIP
Our leadership team has been working hard to make our environment safe for everyone. Worship times will remain the same – Traditional at 8:30 a.m. and Contemporary at 11:00 a.m.
During the 11 a.m. service only, classes are being held for children through sixth grade for those who are comfortable attending. Or children are welcome to sit with their parents in the service.
The Youth class (7th-12th grades) is now meeting 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. in room 301. The ICON Youth are also meeting Sunday evening.
The adult Connect class is meeting at 9:45am in room 203.
The adult Faith & Friendship class is meeting in Fellowship Hall at 9:50 am.
There is restricted seating in the sanctuary. These restrictions are our attempt to comply with all the recommendations in regard to social distancing.
We ask all to practice social distancing and to have no physical contact while here. We also ask you to bring your mask with you as you may desire to wear it all the time or when in more congested areas such as walkways, entrances, etc.
This is for those who are comfortable attending at this time. The services will continue to be live-streamed and recorded for later viewing.
