Resuming In-person Worship
Read the entirety of Pastor Michelle's message HERE.
 
IMPORTANT:
On Monday, 3/15, the EFUMC Administrative Board voted to resume in-person worship on the church campus starting on Good Friday. However, we will continue to livestream our weekly services indefinitely as a new ministry reaching out to our extended community and homebound members.
RESERVE A SPOT FOR IN-PERSON WORSHIP AND ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL:
Reserve your spot here or email edinburgfirst@sbcglobal.net.

ATTENDANCE GUIDELINES:
We will continue compliance with CDC COVID-19 guidelines for in-person gatherings. This includes requiring all attendees...
  • wear a mask
  • keep social distancing of 6 feet. Immediate family members may sit together, but otherwise, keep at least 2 chairs distance within a row for seating.
  • submit to a temperature check. Anyone with a temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher will not be admitted.
  • respond to a health and travel questionnaire upon entering. 
If you have any symptoms or think you may have been exposed, we ask that you stay home to ensure everyone’s continued good health.
WORSHIP SERVICE PROCEDURES:
  • We will continue with our one service model meeting at 10:30 a.m.
  • The doors will be opened at 10:15 a.m. and closed when the service/live stream begins.
  • We will continue to show the children’s time as a prerecorded lesson before the start of service.
  • Our musicians and singers will lead us in worship, but we will NOT have congregational singing or corporate prayers/responses.
  • During the “passing of the peace,” we will greet one another with waves, but we not shake hands or hug as is our habit.
  • After the service is concluded, we ask that you move outside quickly without lingering to chat.
FUTURE PLANS:
  • As the numbers regarding active cases, hospitalizations, and number of people vaccinated improve, we will be able to increase our attendance numbers and slowly incorporate more or our “normal” activities.
  • If there are significant spikes or related issues that cause the concern, church leadership will prayerfully consider the necessity of returning to online worship only.
