Response to Covid-19

July 20, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic has challenged churches to continue being the Church without gathering in person. Fairmount has met that challenge by meeting online, recording and posting worship, providing instructions for worship at home, and finding other ways to connect. The strength and resiliency 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.

This document will specifically focus on identifying when and how to safely resume in-person worship.

A care-filled response to the challenge to returning to in-person worship is about much more than unlocking the church doors and inviting all to come, sit, sing, and greet one another as had been our custom. We know the dangers posed and the risks taken if we were to do that. We care enough not to let that happen. From a place of care and caution, we are taking steps to make sure we are ready for when we return to in-person worship and groups can meet at church. 

Online worship will continue to be available for those worshipping from home. 

We invite you to join on our online community for worship at 10 AM on Sundays. Find us on Facebook, Youtube, and subscribe to the E-Newsletter to keep up-to-date. 

The FPC Office will be open Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 1:00pm, or by appointment. Please call 216.321.5800 to schedule an appointment outside of office hours. We ask that you wear a mask during your visit in the church building. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you. Please sign-in at the Welcome Center where a member of our staff will conduct a wellness check. We ask that you observe the social distancing signs and markings around the church.

Please contact the church office at any time for pastoral care, and see the rest of the announcements for more info on the life of the church.
