Now Open for In-person Worship and Meetings
Effective June 6th!

Dear Members and Friends of FCC

Washoe County health statistics currently report that our Covid-19 testing positivity rate has remained at or below 5.0%, with at least 49% of our population reported as fully vaccinated as of June 1st. With these metrics, the church has decided to open for Sunday morning in-person services beginning June 6th, at 10:00 (restrictions lifted for all of Nevada on June 1st) for those that feel comfortable meeting in-person.

All CDC guidelines will remain in place (masking if you are unvaccinated; 3 ft. social distancing; no congregational singing; stationary passing of the peace; no coffee hour). These guidelines allow for us to accommodate approximately 100 worship attendees.

Noting that this virus and restrictions have been fluid during the pandemic you will be notified if things need to change in the future. Vaccination is not required to attend but strongly encouraged. Sunday School will observe its regularly scheduled summer hiatus with a multi-age offering (outside) once a month during worship through September.

It has been a long haul through the pandemic and some are ready to resume in-person worship, while others are hesitant. Thus, to serve and respect both groups, we are offering this opening of Sunday morning worship in person while continuing our Sunday morning virtual worship (available Sunday late afternoons or Monday mornings on our FCC Website, Facebook Page and YouTube channel).

As participation grows, and as more people become comfortable with in-person worship, our hope and prayer is to move to a second service on Sunday mornings if needed. You will be notified when and if this needs to happen.

God Bless us all as we move forward!
Pastor Kate
