• What guidelines are in place to protect me and others as we return to in-person worship?
    Participants are asked to wear face masks from the time they leave their car to enter the church until they depart from the building following the worship service. Observation of appropriate “social distancing” guidelines are also required. Please maintain six feet between yourself and others not in your household at all times you are on church property. (See: “FCC Health and Safety Policy)
  • Will seating be marked/reserved for individuals and family groups?
    You will be escorted to your seat by ushers who will seat you/your party six feet away from other parties from all sides. (See: “FCC Health and Safety Policy)
  • What will be the length of the worship service?
    As we begin to worship together in-person again, the length of the service will be approximately 30 minutes.
  • Will Sunday School classes be available?
    Sunday School will be held for 30 minutes from 10:15-10:45 in the sanctuary. Please observe the same guidelines we are following during worship.
  • Will we continue to have “Coffee Time” prior to worship service?
    There will be no “Coffee Time” for the time being. Food/beverage service will be discontinued until new guidelines indicate that we can do so safely.

  • How will the musical part of the service work? Will there be congregational singing?
    The instrumental music and prerecorded choir specials will be a part of the worship service. There will be no congregational singing until there’s a clearer consensus regarding viral spread due to singing.
