Dear Fremont First UMC,
I have great news that I know some of you have been waiting to hear: We are resuming in-person worship! With approval from the Bishop, Governor, and our local Leadership Board, our Church will resume worship in the sanctuary at both services. We plan to be back to full speed by March 7th (with a soft launch on February 28th to iron out the details). Traditional service will be at 9:00am, and contemporary at 11:00am.
If you feel comfortable returning to in person worship and plan to attend, we would love to see you! Here’s some things to remember:
- Please enter through the south doors by the central drive so that we can better welcome you (and sanitize one entrance for your safety).
- Check in at the table immediately through the south entrance – this allows us to avoid the use of sign-in pads and prevents one high-contact area.
- Masks are required for the safety and comfort of all. While we will revisit this down the road as vaccine numbers increase. I ask all to wear them at the outset to help establish a good standard for our congregation.
- Come prepared for worship, knowing that certain parts of the worship experience will be changed to facilitate safety and comfort.
For those who are unsure about attending in person yet – and I know that some experience church guilt when they do not attend in person – I encourage you to use wisdom and discretion when choosing between in person or online (especially for those with underlying health conditions, or who live with such persons). Please know that online worship attendance counts as attendance!
Friends, I’m looking forward to this new stage in the life of our church. I’ll see you on Sunday, either in person or online!
Grace and Peace,
