>> Our COVID protocols for Fall 2021:

In this moment of uncertainty about how best to be together in community with COVID variants and the inability of children under 12 to be vaccinated, the COVID Response Team has outlined the following principles for building use at First Church. 

  • Worship will be in the Sanctuary, fully masked.
  • Worship will remain approximately 30-45 minutes long
  • Those who wish to participate in indoor activities, including worship, must sign our church’s Covid Liability Release as well as a record of their attendance and be fully masked when in the building.
  • Groups of ten of less may use Fellowship Hall while masked and socially distanced. Please contact Pastor Joe if you wish to schedule use of Fellowship Hall.
  • While congregational singing is still not advisable at this time, we welcome the musical leadership of vocal soloists or string instrumentalists in worship.
  • Choirs may rehearse in the Sanctuary if masked, socially distanced, windows are open, and overhead fans are on for up to one hour. Participants must sign the church’s Covid Liability Release as well as a record of their attendance. 

We will continue to monitor local and state data and guidance as we consider what worship and community life looks like over the next months.

Worship Circle is back! 
Olivia Russell will be leading an interactive faith formation for students in elementary and middle school. Students will gather before Worship either outside or downstairs, depending on the weather.
