An update on how we plan to worship together, care for each other, and continue to minister to the growing needs in our community.
First--We have decided it's best to find alternative ways to worship together for the time being, rather than gather in the sanctuary on Sunday mornings. Just how we will do that is still being worked out and we'll keep you updated on details in the next few days.
Second--the building is closed for meetings, both church meetings and outside groups with the exception of AA meetings if they choose to gather.
Third--We plan to continue with our SOS program that aids people with financial needs, the food pantry will remain open, Stone Soup will serve soup to go. As we anticipate a growing need for assistance, any donations to our Love Fund would be welcome.
Fourth--We want to remind people, who are able at this time, to continue supporting the church through your financial giving. The financial needs of the church and our ministries for helping people will not be slowing down, but probably picking up. You can mail in a check, set up direct payment with your bank, or online giving through the website will be available soon.
Finally--we want to encourage all of us to take some extra time to reach out and check in with each other, and spend some extra time holding one another and our world in prayer.
We pray that each of us has a deep awareness of God's presence, care, love, and peace as we move through this uncharted time.
God's peace to you all--the FPC Session, Pastors Tom and Hilary
