Dear Congregation,


Greetings in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. The elders want to update the Congregation regarding our public worship services. We have contacted most of you and have determined that most are desirous to be in public worship during this COVID-19 outbreak. Therefore, we have decided that we will conduct public worship under the following guidelines:

1. Per the executive order of the governor, we will not allow more than ten people in the church for worship. That is a regrettable issue, but it is one that follows Rom. 13. It is important to remember that the church is not being persecuted. Therefore, we should be willing to submit to the governing authorities.

2. In light of the first item, we are hosting TWO worship services until this crisis is over. I have spoken to almost everyone in the church and ascertained your desired time each Lord’s Day.

a. Please adhere to what you requested as we are striving to limit the worship service to ten people. If you need to change something, let me know. If I made a mistake, please let me know. Remember, if you are symptomatic, or believe you may be, please do not attend.

b. After the 9:30 AM service, please vacate the building expeditiously. Maintain social distancing and refrain from hugging, handshakes, etc.

c. For those scheduled for the 11 AM service, please do not arrive until 10:50 AM or so. That will allow time for those who attended the first service to vacate the building.

d. The 11 AM service ONLY will be live-streamed for those who cannot be in attendance. www.sermonaudio.com/fellowship-pca.

Thank you for your careful attention to these matters. Let’s pray that the Lord will bring a quick and speedy end to this pandemic in our nation.

Lovingly, I am

Pastor Hill
