COVID-19 STATEMENT (as of January 19, 2021)
CURRENT STATUS RED: No In-Person Worship this Sunday
We have suspended in-person worship services due to a rise in COVID-19 infections locally and throughout the state. We will check the state dashboard each Wednesday. We will resume worship on the Sunday immediately following two consecutive Wednesday reports of orange status. We will update this homepage statement every Wednesday to note our current status. Note that our Covid Team regularly makes recommendations to the Council in response to current pandemic conditions and that our Council discerns about and sets the Coivd policy. We will continue to review our policies and make updates.
HOW TO WORSHIP WITH US VIRTUALLY:
If you receive our emails (sign up here: https://bit.ly/FCUCCEmails), you will be sent a link inviting you to join us via Zoom as early as 9:30, where you will have time to fellowship and chat with other congregants.
At 10 am, we will also begin a live broadcast of our Zoom service on our YouTube channel. Find our YouTube channel by clicking here.
HOW TO CONNECT WITH US IN PERSON:
Our smaller groups will continue to meet in person. This includes choir, weekly Scripture Stories (which meets in person and via Zoom), and our Advent Prayer service on Thursday evenings at 6.
The office will remain open (note, however, that it will not be open next week because of staff vacations) as per usual, 9-12, Monday through Friday. Pastor Nikki (email: ) will continue to have in-person pastoral care meetings and other small group meetings as needed.
REQUIREMENTS FOR IN-PERSON MEETINGS:
We require all people over the age of 2, vaccinated and unvaccinated, to mask during in-person meetings. We strongly request that only vaccinated people and people who have received the booster shot meet with us in person, for the safety of our staff. This policy is subject to change.
Thank you for your diligence and care of one another as we endeavor to make the FCUCC community as safe as possible,
Your FCUCC Leadership
