Letter from Pirst Presbyterian's Session and Pastorft

(Please scroll to read the entire message.)

Greetings FP Church Family,
      We would like to start by thanking each of you for the love and support you have shared with your church family during the pandemic. We have been meeting the past five Sundays on the Miss Pris Patio/Pavilion, and we have so enjoyed getting to worship in this fun new way. We celebrated our homecoming on July 5th, and socially distanced other special services and events to bring a fullness of worship in this strange time. 
     The Session of FPC has been monitoring the numbers of COVID-19 cases as they rise in Scott County and surrounding areas. At this time, we have decided to move Sunday worship back to an online format. We do not make this decision lightly but know that the care for our neighbors and church family must be our top priority.
      
We will be moving to a modified online worship, streamed from the sanctuary. The worship team will be socially distancing and taking extra precautions to protect one another, while providing live music and worship together. Worship will move back to 11AM Eastern on the Church Facebook live stream, and then we will upload the service to YouTube and have it played on local cable 5 at 2PM.  We will provide a 10 min interlude to give everyone time to log in and troubleshoot any issues that may arise.
      
If you would like to read scripture, offer a prayer, poem or special music, please contact the worship team: Cole, Beth, Tamia, pastor Devon or Michelle. 
      
Please know that your Session will continue to monitor the numbers, and keep you updated via email, YouTube, text, and calls. If you have questions, please feel free to contact any member of the Session or Pastor Devon.
     
May God Bless, keep you, and watch over you.
     The Session of First Presbyterian Church and
      
Pastor Devon

For the love, for which from birth,
Over and around us lies.
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise.

Of the day, and of the night,
Hill and dale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon and stars of light;
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise

For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth, and friends above;
For all gentle thoughts and mild;

This our hymn of grateful praise
