Back to the Building

Services
Saturday Night Light | 5:45 PM | Chapel
Sunday Worship | 9:30 AM | Sanctuary
Sunday School | 10:45 AM
 
We are very excited to welcome everyone back into our building for worship once again, but we must still consider the current circumstances. Your safety has been on our minds throughout this pandemic, and it continues to be our top priority. Below we have outlined our plans and regulations for returning to our building.
 
 
 
Recommendations
  • We strongly encourage masks and social distancing.
  • Please use our automatic doors if possible.
  • Avoid hand shakes and hugs.
  • Please respect those around you as we all have different comfort levels.
  • We ask that parishioners fill out attendance slips so that we can contact you in case of an outbreak.
 
For Your Safety
  • We have roped off every other pew to aid in social distancing. The Chapel will only be open for Saturday evenings, while on Sundays, overflow seating will be available in the balcony and in Wesley Hall.
  • We have removed items from our pews as to prevent the passing of germs.
  • There will be no congregational singing at this time to prevent the spread of germs.
  • There will not be any coffee service in the Welcome Center at this time.
  • In place of Children’s Church we will offer single use/take home Busy Bags for all ages.
  • Offering will be collected in baskets at the entrances to the sanctuary rather than by passing the plate.
 
 
Worship From Home
How amazingly blessed we have been to safely worship in Finnup Park over these past several months! We understand that returning to the building is not for everyone just yet. If that is your case, services are uploaded on Sunday afternoons. Please continue to worship with us from the safety of your home in the following ways:
 
FUMCGC.COM
Navigate to our “Services” page through the “Worship” option in our menu. This will allow you to watch on a computer or mobile device.
 
YOUTUBE
Head to www.YouTube.com and search “FUMCGC.” Select our channel. YouTube can be watched through a Smart TV or Roku Device on your home television as well as on a computer or mobile device.
 
Sunday Visitor
 
On Sunday, September 20th David Burke visited our Worship in the Park. David is the Content Specialist for the Great Plains Conference and came to write an article on the success of our outdoor service during the Covid-19 pandemic. Check out his wonderfully prepared article on the conference website!

Stewarding Our Time
 
Does our stewardship series have you thinking “I am already too busy, how can I possibly find time to serve my church?” Well this article addresses that exact question and how important it is for us to realign our priorities so that we find time for what is most important…..God!
 
 
 
Community Garden
Work Day
 
 
A small group of our parishioners came together to beautify and prepare our community gardens for next year!
They filled 2 dumpsters with weed and debris from the area!
What wonderful stewardship they offered to our community!
