Please note that at a special meeting on Tuesday, November 30, the First
Parish Church Council unanimously voted to continue our current Covid
protocols for Worship.
The Council will continue to assess these protocols on a regular basis.

Gathering Procedures:
• Attendees are expected to wear masks and distance if possible.
• Worship Leaders will not need to be masked.
• The congregation may participate in hymn singing and the Opening Prayer.
• In addition, we will continue with the following:
o Contact info for attendees will still be taken in the event contact tracing becomes necessary.
o Hand sanitizer will be available in the narthex should you wish to use it.
o There will continue to be no formal Offering for now, but attendees are invited to place any offering they wish as they leave Worship in
a plate which will be placed at the back of the Sanctuary.
• At the same time, remember that “Virtual Worship” is also here to stay so that we can continue to be one in Worship wherever you may be on
any Sunday.
