The Session of First Presbyterian Church has determined that beginning July 4th, to highly recommend unvaccinated adults wear masks and observe social distance in all areas of the church until the CDC changes their mask guidelines. Masks and distance will not be required for those who are vaccinated. And we follow CDC recommendations, masks continue to be required for all youth and children older than 2, as well as adults who are working with children and youth.
We are allowing worship, Sunday classes, and committees to meet at the church under these guidelines. Fellowship time and gatherings will be determined at a later date as to when they can resume.
