In consultation with FMC healthcare professionals and commission leadership, Trustees and Pastors have developed the FMC Covid-19 Plan. Decisions for whether, and how, we engage in worship services and other activities at FMC are based on cues from local institutions, while understanding that we will follow all published national, state, and local mandates/ordinances. To reduce risk as much as possible, the FMC Covid-19 Readiness Guidelines have been jointly developed by the Pastors and Trustees, FMC medical professionals, the Worship Commission, the Faith Formation Commission, and the Facilities committee. Please familiarize yourself with this document and be prepared to follow practices described therein.
FMC is currently holding indoor, in-person worship services, and masking is optional in the sanctuary and fellowship hall most Sundays.
Masks continue to be required in all non-sanctuary, non-fellowship hall spaces (e.g., classrooms). To be as inclusive and accommodating as possible, the third Sunday of each month is designated as “masks required” in the sanctuary and fellowship hall. Reminders are sent to newsletter subscribers and signage is posted around the building.
Additionally note that some restrictions on the service and consumption of food and drinks have been loosened, contingent on certain factors (size of group, meeting time, meeting space). Potlucks are still prohibited.
Individuals or groups wishing to make use of indoor facilities must have a representative receive approval from Trustees and clearance from the church office prior to meeting at FMC. The process is initiated by submitting this form.
