Pandemic Precautions Update at FCCUCC
In-Person Worship Services
As more of the youth and adults in our church community become fully vaccinated, we are excited to offer both our 8am and 10am services in the sanctuary. Hooray! At the same time, we know that the virus continues to mutate and that there is community spread of the Delta variant (B.1.617.2 strain) of Covid-19 in Colorado. With that in mind, we will continue to ask all worship attendees (over the age of 2) to wear masks inside the church building at all times unless speaking or singing from the chancel. We have also cordoned off every other pew, to create a bit of additional space. We remain committed to protecting one another to the best of our ability-- especially our youngest members who have not yet had the option to be vaccinated.
Online Worship Services
We recognize that the shift to live-streaming worship has NOT been seamless. Rest assured, we are on it! We are working with a professional audio/visual engineer to improve the quality of our livestream service. We are committed to making the service available to all who would like to participate. Whether you feel safest worshipping from home, or you are away on vacation, we will provide a way for you to join us. Please continue to offer us feedback about the sound quality of this worship experience!
Additional Considerations for Kids and Families
We recognize that parents are still negotiating pandemic precautions for their children. So, as we return to the sanctuary we will offer a range of options for kids attending our 10am service. All of these options will be available each week for parents to choose from.
1) Indoor Start to Worship/Outdoor Sunday School
For families who would like to have their children with them for the beginning of worship, we invite your kids to join you in the sanctuary fully masked. We will still offer a Children's Moment, after which a teacher will lead kids outside.
2) The Fully Outside Option
We will offer quiet coloring under shade awnings with Family Faith Formation teachers for the first part of worship for any families who would rather their kids remain in outdoor space. Parents may drop their kids off in the courtyard before entering the building and pick them up in the same place after worship.
3) The Fully Inside Option
We recognize that for some families the heat feels most daunting. All children always have the option of remaining inside for the full worship service. We will offer "busy bags" that kids can work on from the pew.
We are grateful to be in community with you!
