Pastoral response to covid-19



March 12, 2020

Dear Fairmount Family,


The Session met last night and made decisions in response to current information regarding COVID-19 and preventative steps we could take as a church to slow the spread of the virus. At the time, Session’s decision was to hold Sunday worship and cancel everything else. However, today’s address by the Governor made it clear that social distancing is the only way we can hope to fight the spread of this virus.


The Governor signed executive orders forbidding gatherings of 100 people or more. Though he cannot order the closing of churches, we feel it is important to abide by the intent of his ruling. The building will remain closed until further notice and staff is holding (staff only) online worship services, Sunday mornings at 10:00 am.
