FCCP Reopening Task Force Update
Reopening Task Force Update
We are ALIVE and we are LIVE
Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Philippians 4:4
We are writing with an update on resuming in-person indoor worship at The First Congregational Church of Pelham, United Church of Christ. Current COVID-19 conditions in New Hampshire indicate that we are ready for the next steps in our congregation’s re-gathering plan. We will return to in-person worship on June 6th for the 10:00 AM service. The Sunday services will also be live-streamed to the church YouTube channel. Morning Prayer will continue to gather on Zoom.
As we begin gathering in-person indoors we are creating a “new normal” worship. Our congregation now includes in-person and online members, members who worship Sunday morning and those who worship later in the week, members as close as Pelham and as far away as Florida. Our focus is on the entire community in worship.
Please remember that in-person services will follow the FCCP guidelines for gathering, these include pre-registration for worship, limited number of attendees, wearing of masks, windows open and (or the time being) no fellowship.
The link for registering for worship will be sent in the Wednesday Blast, if you need assistance completing the form please call the church office. These procedures and practices are in place for the health and shared life of our community and will be adapted as needed.
The Sunday Service will continue to be live-streamed to our YouTube channel. Digital ministry is now, and will be, an integral part of our path forward. If you need any assistance accessing the online worship services, or any of the Zoom, please contact the church offices as soon as possible. We have Technical Stewards ready to help you get connected!
However you come to church, online or in-person, know that we are held together in God's Love and united in our call to show what the Love of God looks like.
We are grateful to be joined together in this unfolding journey.
Peace and blessings,
Reopening Task Force: Jane Ambargis, Amber Beland, Angele Diack, Carlos Jauhola-Straight, Margaret Oxner, Tom Seniow, Ron Schneider, Chair
