Press play to listen to the latest update from council.
Dear FCC Friends,
Due to the continued increase of COVID-19 cases in Scott and Rock Island Counties, Church Council has once again determined it is currently not safe to reopen our church building. We will continue to reevaluate the situation in the weeks to come and will be sure to let you know when we will begin to reopen. For now, we will remain in “Step One” of our reopening process. This step includes the following:
- Limited in-person worship of 10 people maximum, paired with online worship and FM transmitter broadcast
- Physical attendance by worship leaders only
- Online meetings only
- Church office open on a limited basis
- Guests should call ahead before arriving.
- Masks are required while in the building.
- Church building closed to events and activities
An exciting new addition to our worship services is the installation of an FM transmitter! Beginning August 2nd, you can participate in our Sunday worship services from the comfort of your own car in our church parking lot. Simply find a parking spot at the church, tune your radio to 107.3 FM, and enjoy! We ask that you maintain social distancing while in the church parking lot. If you decide that you would also like to stream the video through your phone while at the church, please use your own data provider as the church’s wi-fi bandwidth is limited. Since August 2nd is also communion Sunday, we will be distributing pre-packaged communion elements to you in the parking lot. We hope you consider participating in this manner as a safe way to get out of the house on Sunday mornings. If you would still like to remain at home, we will continue to broadcast worship services through FCC Live on both Facebook and YouTube.
Although the doors are still closed, the church is still needing to operate as safely as it can under the current circumstances. Please continue to prayerfully consider your financial contributions to our church as we move through this challenging time. We will continue to keep you updated as we work through this process. Please pray for your church leaders, our members and friends, and our community!
Rev. Michael Swartz
