1st Church and COVID-19 Update

This week has been a week of firsts for many of us at 1st Church. As you know, the President has declared a national state of emergency in our country, and the CDC has asked the state of Florida to cancel gatherings of 250 or more as well as to implement screening procedures of smaller groups.

With this in mind, we are suspending all in-person worship services on our campus. We will broadcast our Contemporary service at 9:15 am and our 11 am traditional service on Facebook Live, http://facebook.com/whatis1st. Both services will be available on our website by Tuesday, March 17, https://whatis1st.com.

All in-person small groups, administrative meetings, Bible studies and activities on our campus are cancelled until further notice. Also, please note, the Ladies Spring Luncheon scheduled for March 21 and Fine Arts at First Choral Concert on March 23 have been postponed. Please maximize social media and other communication methods to stay in touch with each other. If you know of someone who does not have internet access, please pass on this very important information.

The church office will remain open this week during normal office hours should you need to reach your pastors or ministry leaders. We will make decisions about other gatherings on a week to week basis and keep you informed.

We want to encourage you to continue in our Lenten daily Bible reading Listen to Him. As we have said before, God is still on the throne. Use this time to spend time in the scriptures, listening to God’s voice and hearing what He has for you during this time in your life.
