First United Methodist Church
FROM THE PASTOR
Friends – I want to keep you updated in the ever changing saga of response to COVID 19. Please see the following information:
- All in-person worship in the sanctuary of our church has been canceled for the month of April. I’m sorry to have to report this to you but it is in response to our Federal and State guidelines. I am also aware that other of our churches in the area will be doing the same thing. Again, this will continue through the month of April. However, our Wednesday evening Bible studies at 6 will continue as will worship at 11:00 each Sunday. Both of these will be live streamed through our Facebook page.
- This coming Sunday, we will observe Holy Communion via live stream on our Facebook page. I ask that on Sunday morning for our worship time, that you please have a small container of grape juice and a piece of bread. When we have shared the word of God and a meditation together, I will lead us in the liturgy for Holy Communion. I know this is new, but let us be the Body of Christ together and participate in this sacred time as a church family.
- Let me, again, ask that you remain faithful in your giving to our church. The expenses continue, though the utilities are reduced due to non-activity. Thank you for your faithful dedication to Christ and His church. I am honored to serve alongside you in our mission to share Christ in our community.
