OUTDOOR WORSHIP

Sunday, September 27, 10:00 AM | Lycoming College Intramural Field

Join us for worship outside! Here are some things to be aware of:

  • Bring your own chair to sit on (we will have a few extra available for those who need)
  • We ask that you wear a mask upon finding your seat, but you can take them off at your chair (similar to how restaurants are operating)
  • Please social distance (at least 6 feet apart from family groups)
  • As you know the words, sing out! Lyrics will be available in the First Church App
  • Pack your own lunch for a post-service, socially distanced picnic following the service
  • Online services will still be offered at 8 AM, 9:30 AM, and 11 AM.

You must pre-register to attend. When you are registering, we ask that you select either “Volunteer” if you will be serving in a specific capacity, or “Congregant” if you will be attending worship normally.

SANCTUARY WORSHIP

Sundays, 10:00 AM | 604 Market St — (FEC) Sanctuary

Join us for worship in the (FEC) Sanctuary! All necessary steps are being taken to adhere to CDC guidelines, but we cannot guarantee the safety of every person who attends. Therefore, if you are in a higher risk category or feel unwell, please make the best decision for you and your family about coming on a Sunday morning.

Please enter through either the Packer St or Ross St doors. (The Ross St doors are reserved for the disabled.) The doors for worship open at 9:45 AM. When you arrive, a volunteer will be there to open the door and greet you. We ask that you sanitize upon entering the building and grab a mask if you don’t own one already. You’ll be directed to the Sanctuary, where we ask you to find a seat in a row that’s not been blocked off and about six feet between family groups. 

You must pre-register to attend. When you are registering, we ask that you select either “Volunteer” if you will be serving in a specific capacity, or “Congregant” if you will be attending worship normally.
