Outdoor Service Covid Precautions

FUPC Worship Covenant

We welcome you to outdoor, in-person worship each Sunday at 8:30 am!

May you sense Christ’s presence here!

This is the agreement we make when we worship together so everyone can be safe:

  • We will wear masks, take temps, sign in with contact info, and practice social distancing on campus. Masks are at a parent’s discretion for those under two years old.
  • Mutually exposed individuals may sit together, with care and attention given to keeping groups small.
  • Worship leaders will stand at a distance and may unmask to be heard clearly.
  • The passing of the peace and other signs of care will be expressed by eye contact, nods of acknowledgement, and waving instead of handshakes, hugs, or other physical touch.
  • Singing will be humming and speaking the words to songs and hymns softly.
  • Pre-packaged elements will be used for communion.
  • The Sanctuary doors will not be open, but clean and sanitized restrooms will be available 8:15-11 a.m. in the Calvin building.
  • If you are experiencing any symptoms related to Covid-19 (or a variant) or are in a quarantine period, please participate from home in our livestream service.

Important Notes:

  • Please bring a lawn chair and, depending on weather, a blanket, hat, sunscreen, etc.
  • Folding chairs will be provided for visitors and for any experiencing health concerns.
  • Bottled water will be available at the registration area near the bell.

If you test positive for Covid-19 after worshiping with us, please report this immediately to our pastors through the Church Office (442-4411) so other worshipers can be contacted.  We will not disclose your name in notifications.

Changes in weather or a community virus spike may cause the cancellation of a Sunday service.  Updates will be posted on Saturdays by 7 p.m. on the FUPC website.

This information reflects the FUPC Session policy, under the guidance of the Covid-19 Response Team.
