January Worship Update

 Happy Epiphany!  We hope you had a blessed Christmas, and may the New Year open up new opportunities for experiencing Christ.

On Tuesday, the Worship Committee met and decided that FPC will not have in-person worship through Jan. 17 because of the current status of Covid cases in Union County. The Worship Committee will meet on January 19 to review the Covid situation at that time and assess in-person worship accordingly. Please continue praying for a decrease in case counts in Union County!

On January 17, we are scheduled to have a Congregational Meeting to elect officers and review the pastors’ terms of call.  This Congregational Meeting will be held electronically via Zoom.  Early next week we will send out information on how to connect, and we will set up a ‘test’ time so that you can make sure you can connect to the Congregational Meeting. We want to have as many of you present for the meeting as possible.

Blessings,

Keith and Laura

Midweek Connection 12.23.20

This week's FPC Midweek Connection features the fabulous Connie Ingerson and a tour of her beautiful nativities! Just the thing for the day before Christmas Eve.

You can access it here: https://youtu.be/U498Ii2QqIk
Enjoy!

Christmas Eve Information

 Happy Christmas Adam!  Since the day before Christmas is Christmas Eve, the day before that is Christmas Adam. We learned that joke from our friend Taylor Gould of La Grande United Methodist, one of our collaborators in the video below, along with Pastor Roberta Smythe (Zion Lutheran and St. Peters Episcopal). 

For those of you who are staying home on Christmas Eve (or for anyone who wants the "both-and" option of in-person and at home!), here is our pre-recorded Christmas Eve service. Many thanks to Teagan Null on cello and Connie Ingerson on piano for our portion of the service.   Enjoy!



For those coming to the in-person service tomorrow, the 5PM slot is full.  There are still some openings for 4PM and 6PM so please RSVP here: https://forms.gle/bZr7z52jhvmNqmVe8 (it still has 5PM as an option since I can't figure out how to shut that off without loosing the whole form)

Remember to dress warmly and wear a mask as we will be singing!  Feel free to bring lawn chairs, blankets, and a warm drink if you like.  We will have battery tea-lights but you may want to bring a headlamp for the later services to help read the bulletin.  We are meeting outside the sanctuary doors on the portion of lawn near the corner of Washington and Spring.

We are looking forward to celebrating Christ's birth either virtually or in person with you!
