Worship with First Pres
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.


To review:

Welcome

Christ Window (2, cropped)_opt

First Presbyterian Church is committed to vibrant, traditional worship. We worship God together in several ways: with hymns accompanied by organ and piano, anthems from the choir, the reading of the lectionary, the preaching of the Word, the celebration of the Sacraments, and the practice of stewardship.

We view worship as a spiritual practice. The stained glass window in the front of our sanctuary reminds us that Jesus invites everyone to participate in worship.

We hope you feel welcome to join us on Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. for an uplifting and inspiring time of traditional worship.
