Worship Update June 25 News From Pastor Nancy:
Dear Church Family,

We had a great first run with our new streaming equipment this past Sunday, June 21. We had a few challenges (sorry there wasn’t any sound for the Children’s Message), but we learned a lot and are ready for in-person worship this coming Sunday, June 28, at 10 a.m.

For our first Sunday back, you will notice that we have had to make a few changes:

1.For the first few Sundays, we will not have childcare, children’s church, or Sunday school. The goal is to ease back, making adjustments based on how the first few Sundays go.

2.You will notice that the staff and greeters/ushers will be wearing masks during worship. Covid-19 is spread primarily person to person and wearing a mask significantly reduces community spread. We strongly encourage you to wear a mask when you come to worship to help reduce risks to others and yourself. For ushers/greeters and worship leaders, this will be mandatory, except for those leading worship when on the chancel area. If you or someone you love has underlying health problems that make one more susceptible to infection, caution is advised about returning to in-person worship too soon. 

3.We have placed hand sanitizer at strategic points around the sanctuary and at all entrances. Again, the idea is to make sure that we can keep meeting together without putting people at unnecessary risk. 

4.The only entrances that will be available into the church will be the Second Street and Atrium entrances. The main sanctuary entrance is not being closed because of Covid-19 issues, but due to some structural issues that make the entrance a hazard at this time. The Trustees are working on this issue. 

5.We will have an usher/greeter stationed at each set of restrooms. We will invite one guest at a time to enter each restroom.

6.You will notice a simpler format for worship. We removed all Bibles, hymnals, pew cards, and pencils. For now, we will not have congregational singing, share communion during the worship service, or have a passing of the offering plates. Offering plates, in which to place our tithes and offerings at the beginning or end of service, will be located at the front and back of the sanctuary.

What we do beyond the first few weeks will depend on how much we cooperate with the above changes. If these new protocols are followed and we see the number of new infections in our area drop, we will begin to loosen restrictions. If numbers of new infections rise, we will make appropriate changes to keep people safe. We will be watching the metrics. 

Our church leadership, along with you, long to see this pandemic end. We are thankful that even though not everyone will be able to attend in-person worship, we now have the means for everyone to experience the worship gathering. Remember streaming can be found on our church Facebook or Vimeo page. 

We will do our best to keep the people of Fulton First UMC safe, informed, and connected in Christ. 

Peace and Love in Christ,

Pastor Nancy
