A Note from Pastor Joyce (on 05/20/2020)
Dear Church Family and Friends,
 
There have been a lot of questions about when we would have in person worship again.  The short answer is we will have 60 chairs set up in the Fountain of Life Center this coming Sunday, May 24, for people to be physically present while we live stream the service.  The service will have the same abbreviated format as it has the past several weeks.  For everyone's safety, we will not have passing of the peace or fellowship following the service (no donuts or coffee), and no Sunday School or nursery until further notice. 
 
We are making the chairs available this Sunday primarily for those persons who do not have the technology to watch the live stream service.  By May 31 we will have more chairs set up, and will open the sanctuary for overflow if necessary.  We will need to keep  proper safe distancing as ordered by the medical experts and the Office of the Governor.
 
We are also asking you to wear masks, especially as you enter and leave the building.  Hand sanitizer will be available at the entrance.
 
Please understand this is not "resuming where we left off".  We are still feeling our way along this new path, and we are not able to look too far into the future.  We will continue to live stream the services for the foreseeable future.  If you have an underlying condition, are at higher risk, or if you are just not ready to come to worship in person, we totally understand and want you to know that while you are missed, you are loved!
 
We are reassessing things on a weekly basis and will keep you informed, either by email or through the New Fountain UMC Facebook page.  If you have any questions, please contact the church office.
 
Thank you for your continued understanding and patience as we navigate these new waters.
 
Peace and grace,
Pastor Joyce
