The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged churches to continue being the Church without gathering in person. Fairmount has met the challenge by meeting online, recording and posting worship, providing instructions for worship at home, and finding other ways to connect. The strength and resilience of our family of faith has become evident.
But the challenges don't end there. As we continue to live with this pandemic, we continue to have to find ways to connect and worship with each other, offer comfort and build community, and remain true to our church's mission and Christ's calling. Please read through Session's A Care-Filled Response to the Return to In-Person Worship and Activities.
