5-12-20 FUMC Update

I can’t tell you how great it has been to see some of our small groups coming back. Family Ties has started back slowly, and the Quilters have started back slowly. Family Ties is meeting in Wesley Hall on Sundays at 10 am and there is plenty of space to join them while maintaining 6 feet apart. Coffee and Conversation is ALSO making plans to start back, and Amy Moss said they’ll meet in FLC if they have to so there will be enough distance for people so contact her for details on their plans.
Penny Boice, our Worship Chair met with Sue Gross, our Communion Coordinator, to explore safe ways we may be able to have communion when we gather again. Penny will also be in touch with all of our ushers this week to see who is comfortable coming back to church in June.  We will have a meeting together in the third week of May and Penny will be letting you know the day.
Please hear me clearly … WE DO NOT WANT ANYONE COMING BACK WHO FEEL THEY ARE VULNERABLE! (Click here for CDC details.)
We will take as many and MORE precautions to keep everyone as safe as possible, but the CDC recommendations still apply. I really do mean this. I will support whatever your decision you make whether to continue to worship at home, come to church, or to go back and forth depending on how you feel on any given day! After Governor Abbott’s press conference on May 18, your Church Council will meet next week to reassess our Phase 2 opening plans and provide you with lots of details. Stay tuned and pray!
