A Word from the Elders...

Like you, we are longing for the day when we can all meet together again as a congregation. Information and predictions about when larger gatherings will be safe and permissible remains relatively unclear. What does seem likely is that we will continue to see a gradual easing up of the current “stay at home” and “social distancing” requirements as we move further into the spring and summer months.

That being said, the Elders believe it is incumbent upon us to continue to encourage careful compliance with the current health guidelines, while also recommending that the congregation begin assessing, planning and pursuing opportunities to gather in small groups where the health guidelines can be adhered to.

Below are more details about the health guidelines that are still in place, as well as information about how you might participate in a small group gathering to watch our Sunday Service online.

Please note that each individual and/or family must determine what they believe is best for them regarding hosting or participating in small gatherings in the near term. House to House is merely our effort to facilitate what our people decide to do during this unique season.

Health Guidelines:

The following health guidelines and other stipulations are detailed in Gov. Kemp’s Executive Order dated April 23, 2020.

    • Social distancing of 6ft. or more in small gatherings
    • Face masks/coverings encouraged
    • Those in high risk/vulnerable groups should continue to shelter in place

How will this work?

Some of you may already be gathering with family or friends on Sundays. Others may have in mind those with whom they could gather in the upcoming weeks. We encourage you to continue as you are able, or plan new gatherings at your discretion.

If you would like to host or participate in a future gathering and need some assistance from the FCC staff, please review the following information.

Host Homes

  • Those who can meet the guidelines below may volunteer to host a gathering.
  • FCC staff will compile a contact list of willing hosts.
  • Hosts may be contacted directly by other FCC members and/or regular attenders who are looking for a gathering location.
  • If contacted, Hosts will communicate whether or not they will be hosting a gathering on an upcoming Sunday.
  • It will be up to Hosts and Participants to coordinate voluntary gatherings. FCC Staff will ONLY facilitate initial communication between the parties.
