IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON IN-PERSON WORSHIP

 

Dear Friends in Christ,

 

Likely you have heard that our United Methodist Resident Bishop, Bishop Jonathan Holston, announced on May 15, 2020 that United Methodist churches may restart in-person worship June 14, 2020. However, considering the current guidance from reliable federal and state officials, the leadership of First UMC began immediately to consider the path toward restarting in-person worship. Our primary goal in this endeavor is the health, safety and welfare of each member and affiliate of First United Methodist Church. The leadership team is working diligently to chart a path ahead toward restarting in-person worship that is deliberate, comprehensive and sustainable.

During our lengthy online and telephonic meetings over the past few weeks, therefore, we determined that together we would balance excitement with prudence in our plan to reengage in-person worship. Further, we consulted other churches, leaders and Conference officials in charting our unique way forward to ensuring the vitality of the worship life of our church.

With that, First United Methodist Church will not reengage in-person worship until September 13, 2020. I realize that may seem like a long way off, but this plan will allow us further time to discern a sustainable plan for social distancing, sanitizing the worship space, limiting attendee exposure, training volunteer teams, and communicating with every member of FUMC.

An important part of this plan is that, within the next two weeks, you will receive a Congregational Survey by either email, postal mail, online survey service or personal phone call. Your input is on this survey is vital to the future of the plan of in-person worship. The leadership team will review all responses to the survey and will tabulate and assess the results. We hope to complete a composite report of the survey results and have that available for your review by the end of the month of June.

Meantime, please let me know if have any questions or concerns, and text or call me at: 843-708-5696 or my email at: caphillips@umcsc.org. Otherwise you can reach me at the church office.

Thank you for your faithfulness to the gospel of Christ and to the people of First UMC. The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.

 

Grace and peace,

Pastor Charles
