July 2020 Calendar

6/10/2020 Update

In its regular monthly meeting on Monday, June 8, 2020 the Session of FPC, on the basis of medical advice, voted unanimously to postpone the opening of in-person worship services until we have a better sense of whether or not there has been a significant increase in COVID-19 cases in Western Kentucky and Calloway County. There will be no in-person worship on Sunday, June 14, but we will have a parking lot service for those in vehicles on Sunday, July 5. Following that service, the Session will reexamine the possibility of beginning in-person worship later in July.

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, First Presbyterian Church has not been holding in-person Worship Service, Sunday School, or any in-person activities. We do, however, plan to open the church up to some activities beginning June 1, 2020.

All visitors and staff will be required to wear a mask at all times until further notice.

Please refer to the policies below for more information:

The following policies, put in place by Session Elders of FPC, are based on the guidelines put out by our state and government officials.  We hope that a spirit of grace and concern for our neighbor will abound as we strive to keep everyone safe and healthy during these uncertain times.

  • At this time, in-person worship has been postponed. An outdoor parking lot service will be offered July 5 at 8:00 a.m. Participants will remain in their vehicles. Communion will be served; participants will need to bring their own elements.
  • When in-person worship resumes, we will offer two worship times on Sunday mornings: 9:00 and 11:00 am. Session members will contact church members to determine their preference, however we will ultimately have to make worship time assignments for each individual family unit so that proper social distancing is maintained and we stay within the limits of how many people may occupy the church building at one time.  These are guidelines for reopening churches as determined by the state/CDC and are also being recommended by our presbytery and denomination.
  • We will live-stream and record the 11:00 worship for those who feel they shouldn’t attend in person worship.
  • Masks covering both the mouth and nose must be worn at all times while in the church building. Remember this is to protect your neighbor. People are most contagious 2 days before they develop COVID-19 symptoms.  If you do not have your own mask the church will have some available. 
  • There will be no choir or congregational singing for the next 3 months because this can spread droplets of the virus up to 20 feet. There will be no use of wind instruments either. We will have the piano and soloists only.
  • There will be no nursery or Children Worship & Wonder at this time. Children will need to sit with their families in the sanctuary. We will resume these as soon as we feel it is safe to do so.
  • There will be no Sunday school due to the necessary cleaning required between services
  • No food or drinks are to be made/served at church.
  • We will reopen the church on June 1st to non-worship meetings and activities, contingent upon there being no significant increase in the local COVID-19 cases. Groups will be limited to 10 people and each group will be asked to follow these disinfecting guidelines developed by session.
  • Members, participants must wear masks.

For folks who will be unable to join us, we will continue to upload to our website and on Facebook a weekly online worship service from Pastor Renee that you will be able to watch in order to worship with us remotely.

We will continue to monitor things and may change plans and policy, as needed, to keep everyone safe and healthy.
