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 Sunday morning Worship.
The Council will continue to assess these protocols on a regular basis.

Sunday Morning 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.
