WORSHIP AT 1ST

As a community of faith, the people of 1st United Methodist Church have been worshipping for more than 150 years. 

Whether you are joining us online or in-person we hope our time together is meaningful and that you feel welcome as we come together for worship.

    Mask wearing is optional for those who are fully vaccinated. According to the CDC, "fully vaccinated" means that two weeks have passed since you received the final dose of one of the authorized vaccines. You are welcome and encouraged to continue to wear a mask if you choose.

     

    Please follow CDC guidelines if you are unvaccinated. 

    The CDC continues to recommend that you:

    1. wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth and
    2. maintain social distancing if you are unvaccinated.

    Please wear a mask in the 1st Kids ministry area. Simply because our children do not yet have the opportunity to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, please continue to wear a mask while you are in the children's nursery or Sunday school area


    Please be compassionate and respect each others' needs and choices. Recognizing that age, medical conditions, and other circumstances prevent some from receiving vaccines, please respect their needs to wear masks and to maintain social distancing.

     

    Please consider vaccination if you are eligible and able. One possible demonstration of love for neighbors is to protect yourself and others through preventive measures like vaccines.
