It is our fervent desire and intention to keep everyone safe. Please be the first line of defense. If you are showing any suspicious symptoms or generally feeling unwell, PLEASE STAY HOME. If you are not yet ready to be around people, even when they are masked and distanced, that is okay.
Worship attenders are asked to wear masks at all times. We will have masks available for anyone who needs one. Hand sanitizer will be available at entry/exit points. Seating will be only in the clearly designated areas.
Some of our traditional worship activities significantly increase the risk of transmitting coronavirus. Therefore, for a time, our face-to-face worship services will not include The Lord’s Supper, hymn singing, singing by our choir, and we will not provide a nursery. Special music will be provided, however, and children may attend the entire service, which will include a Children’s Message. Tithes and offerings will be collected at the door at the end of the service. If printed material is needed, it will be placed in the pews ahead of time.
Please be aware of the distance between you and others before, during, and after the service, observing the minimum distance of six feet. Families may, of course, sit together.
The 2-week interval between in-person worship services is intentional. Since fourteen days is the incubation period for COVID-19, this will provide a distance of time and decrease the risk for everyone. Appropriate cleaning of the sanctuary will be done between service Sundays. Online worship videos will continue to be posted every Sunday.
It is the mission of First Christian Church of Farmville (Disciples of Christ) to provide an environment where all who come can learn, fellowship, worship, and grow spiritually closer to God. We will fulfill our greater obligation to spread the good news of Jesus Christ by being of service to the members of our community and the world. Our efforts and activities will be done in the name of Jesus Christ.
