The First Presbyterian Church of Meadville
Sunday, August 9, 2020
-- After a great deal of prayerful consideration, the Session of the Church has decided to resume in-person worship. We will gather at 8:30AM in Fellowship Hall and at 10:00AM in the Sanctuary. Sunday worship services will be live-broadcast on the first and third Sunday of the month via Armstrong cable. You can still view all our Sunday services by visiting the church's Facebook page or here on our website (services usually uploaded within 24 hours).
-- Worship will be planned in accordance with public health guidelines. This will include modification to our normal practices to ensure the safety of those who choose to join us. Posters will be on display with regard to COVID-19 and distancing protocols.
-- The Session requests your help in the following areas: Anyone who is ill or has been exposed to COVID-19 is asked to remain at home. Those with underlying medical conditions or over 65 years of age may want to join us virtually rather than in person. We ask those who choose to enter the building to keep physical distance at all times, practice good hand hygiene, and wear a facemask. Children are to remain with their parents as the Church is unable to provide nursery care at this time.
-- We all look forward to the day when we can return to "normal", but until that time we are thankful for the opportunity to gather in this limited manner. For further information, we encourage you to contact the church office.
-- The food pantry is still operating, but clients will be asked to remain outside the office, rather than entering as before.
We want to stay connected during this anxious and uncertain time, and are working on ways to support one another through this temporary period of “social distancing.” Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have a pastoral need, or are self-quarantining: the church office is open during the week to receive phone calls.
We will be making updates on this website as developments occur. The situation is fluid and we will strive to communicate accurate information to you as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
