Sundays During Covid-19

Sunday morning worship has been a bit different this year, yet it is still vitally important that we prioritize worshiping God together as His church. We are working to ensure that we can do so in a safe manner during the Covid pandemic and that we make provisions for those that are at a higher risk of infection. You can check this page to see recent updates regarding our response to the pandemic.

Our worship services are available in person (9 & 11am, 6pm) or online (11am, 9am recorded and available Sunday afternoon). Please register if you plan to attend in person. Links to registration as well as our streaming service are available below.

The coronavirus pandemic we are currently facing has impacted all of us at this point and has forced changes in the way we go about life. Please check this page for updates regarding how these changes will impact services, ministries, and events at First Pres.

Most importantly, we must always remember that God is absolutely in control of everything, and therefore our response should not be to fear, panic, or despair; but rather to pray and trust. We ask that you continually pray for those directly impacted by this disease, our elected officials, our session, and our world.

UPDATE: 9/1/2020

We will have limited capacity for childcare for toddlers beginning on Sunday, September 6.

UPDATE: 6/2/2020

The Stay at Home Order has been lifted and we plan to being worshiping in person again on June 7th. Service attendance will be limited to permit social distancing as recommended by health officials. We have set up a registration so no one needs to arrive only to find that we have reached capacity. Please email us if you would like more information on attending services.

Social distancing guidelines have been extended to last through April, therefore we will continue to provide online worship services until that time.

We will begin our Easter series in the book of John this Sunday. We will then join with six other downriver churches for a Good Friday service at noon on April 10. A link will be provided on our homepage and our Facebook page before the service.

We are also meeting for prayer via Zoom each Wednesday evening at 6:30pm, that link will be posted to our Facebook page on Wednesday evening.

As always, please let Desiree Merkey and Mike Rozanski know if you need assistance or if you simply would like someone to pray with you.

In light of the strong recommendation from our government that no more than ten people gather, our elders have decided that our worship services will be live stream only.

UPDATE: 3/14/2020

Governor Whitmer has signed an executive order banning gatherings of over 250 people, which affects our Sunday services. All services for Sunday, March 15th are cancelled.

We take very seriously our responsibility and privilege for worship the Lord together each Sunday and therefore the elders will be meeting on Sunday to discuss how we will do that in the coming weeks.
