Join us tomorrow after 9:15 worship for The Hanging of The Greens! With a busy holiday week coming up and Advent beginning next Sunday, we will take advantage of our time together after worship to hang the greens. Please plan on lending a hand!

Guidelines for Worship Services

So much has happened in our lives, the lives of our families, and our community both local and national during this pandemic. We will continue to do our best to keep each other healthy and well.  We will hold one service at 9:15 AM in the sanctuary. While we are excited for this time of praising God together, it is very different than the worship that we shared pre-pandemic.  In consultation with our Conference leaders and the Methodist medical community we have been presented with clear guidelines we must follow to hold a worship service in our sanctuary.  

Listed here are the guidelines we will be following:

-Every other pew will be available with non-available pews being roped off

-Six foot distance between worshiping individuals or families

-Hand sanitizer available as attendees enter the building

-Face masks are required

-We will not be passing offertory plates

-We will have a basket near the doors as we enter and exit to receive offering gifts

-There will be no printed bulletins

-An usher will be taking attendance at the door to ensure we have record of all who attend and a valid phone number to contact them in case we find that someone who has attended service has tested positive for COVID-19

In order to adhere to these guidelines we have had to make certain changes to our standard service order and the physical space we share. To implement these guidelines we will:

-Ask that you please bring a mask of your own; we will have a limited number available if you do not have one

By taking these precautions we believe that we can provide a safe, socially-distant environment for worship. These are not small changes.  These changes are not going to work for everyone.  We know that now may not be the time for you and your family to return to the sanctuary for worship.  While we do not anticipate it to be a problem; we may have to turn away people who wish to worship with us due to the lower capacity of our sanctuary under these guidelines.  However, our diligence in following these guidelines is essential to following John Wesley’s first general rule to give Christians a guide for living a faithful life, “Do no harm.”  Please pray first over attending worship under these guidelines and then make the right decision for you and your family.  We hope to see you soon.  If you have any questions about our new guidelines please call the church office at 936.825.3342.

Worship

We worship every Sunday at 9:15 AM (except for fifth Sundays).  Our worship here at FUMC takes on a traditional rhythm.

Our worship service is designed to connect people to God through creating an atmosphere of friends and family; we sing, pray, and respond to God’s Word.  We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month.  Our goal in worship is to use these elements to allow us to hear God’s revealing of Himself and for us to respond to what we know to be true about our God.  Join us if you are looking for a community that you can connect with in worship that will challenge and uplift you.

We DO NOT meet on fifth Sundays.
