CHURCH REOPENS

First Presbyterian Church of GB 2016 (4)-optSunday, July 12, 10 am for Worship

First Pres' session has made the decision to re-open for worship on Sundays starting Sunday, July 12 at 10:00 a.m. in a shortened and revised format, with operational policies and procedures which have changed for the congregation's safety.

For those of you who won't be attending the in-person service, it will also be broadcast live on the First Pres Facebook page. Information on how to access the live or recorded broadcast:

  • You can watch it first each Sunday morning at 10 am on Facebook on our First Pres Facebook page. A post that indicates the service is live will appear at 10 am for you to click on and watch.
  • You can also view it after that on our Facebook page under Videos, or
  • On our church website under I'm New - Sermons. Give this a little time to be loaded please.


The church will also be open for “new normal” activities effective July 6, and will hold worship in a shortened and revised format beginning July 12. Please review the attached documents (below) carefully before you come to church for worship or any other purpose. A few key points for attending in person:

  • If you are exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms such as fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose other than from allergies, nausea or vomiting or diarrhea – PLEASE STAY HOME.
  • After considerable thought and research, we decided not to take temperatures of those entering the building at this time. There doesn’t seem to be a prevailing opinion one way or the other on this.
  • We also decided not to require, but to STRONGLY recommend the wearing of masks while in the building. We ask that you not be judgmental of those few who may choose not to wear a mask for whatever reason.
  • There will be a sign - up sheet instead of friendship pads. Please sign in using your own pen or one of the sanitized pens provided.
  • Masks will be available at the main entrance and sanitizer will be available throughout the building.
  • We are hopeful that we will have the capability to broadcast worship by July 12, at least via Facebook. You may also wish to join First United Presbyterian’s worship via Facebook or through their website. (First United is also planning to return to “live” worship on July 12.)
  • If for ANY reason you are uncomfortable about returning to live worship at this time, please stay home and instead participate via the Internet.

PRESBYTERIAN PANTRY CONTINUES TO OPERATE WITH SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
2020-03-24 Pantry w new procedures (3)

July 14 & July 28, 10 am - noon

The Presbyterian Pantry continues to operate during the pandemic, with changes in how the groceries are provided to our guests. The procedure to provide food for the following pantries will follow the same process: everything will be pre-bagged and distributed at the entrance to the door on Howard St on normal pantry days (2nd and 4th Tuesdays from 10 am to noon.)

This provides for the least amount of person-to-person contact, as guests will pick up the bag(s) on the sidewalk table and bring them to their vehicles. Guests should continue to remain at least 6 feet apart in line. Masks are preferred

A message on behalf of the Presbyterian Pantry Board requesting donations of any canned and dry foods. Donations can be dropped off Mondays through Thursdays at the church office between 9:30 am and 2 pm. Because neither the Letter Carriers' food drive or the Scouting food drive are likely to take place before Fall, and we have depended on those food drives in the past to help support Pantry, we are concerned about having enough supplies. You can also support the pantry through your purchases at Amazon Smile: Shop at http://smile.amazon.com/ch/47-3189239 and AmazonSmile donates to Presbyterian Pantry of Green Bay!

MISSING OUR FELLOWSHIP?

While we can't gather in person, we can have virtual gatherings through Zoom - video on your computer or smartphone, or listen/participate by phone. Following the First United online service at 9:45 a.m., we have a Zoom fellowship gathering at 10:15 a.m. each Sunday.

A Devotional gathering at 6:30 p.m. each Thursday (with the exception of July 2) includes communion and you are asked to have your own communion elements (bread and juice) ready and Nancy Siewert will conduct communion.

Those who don't have the ability to go online will still be able to call in with the information provided. We hope that you will join us for the next best thing to being able to gather in person. It is great to see people's faces - and hear their voices! (Marj Krause Crowl is on the phone in the photo.)

Join Zoom Meetings by following the instructions in the email that you received on June 30 (good for all Fellowship and Devotional meetings in July.)
