A welcoming, open spiritual community where You're Welcome Just As You are.
... to each and Every One for you are All Family ...
"Welcome" from Silverton First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)!
July 1, 2020
Pastor Steve officially retired on July 1, and we wanted to take this opportunity to let you know what will be happening the next couple of months, at least as best we can during this change in our church and the ongoing changes with regard to the pandemic crisis.
Now that Marion County is in Phase 2, we can have more people attend in-person worship services, therefore, beginning Sunday, July 5th, we will return to one service at 10:00 a.m. We will continue to follow the executive orders set out by Governor Brown for strict social distancing and sanitizing protocols, including face coverings, which are now required in public spaces for anyone 12 years and older.
In order to maintain the required social distancing and contact tracing rules, anyone wishing to attend worship service MUST contact the church by email or phone by 10:00 a.m. Thursday to sign up to attend that Sunday's service. You will be added to the list and assigned a seat number. You must provide the names of everyone in your group who will be attending. Of course, if you are not able or prefer not to attend in person, we will continue to livestream our church services.
The sanctuary will accommodate up to 70 people, depending on family sizes, and any overflow will be seated in the multi-purpose room. But, as you all are aware, everything is subject to change and we will continue to keep you informed by email and on our Facebook page at "Silverton FCC Church Family."
Regarding pastoral duties, the transition committee is hard at work and very close to the selection of our interim pastor, in the meantime, the Elders will lead worship services and we will host a series of excellent guest preachers for July and most of August.
As always, please contact the church office or any of the Elders for any needs, concerns or assistance that may arise.
Clint Sanford, Board Chairman
Daniel Côté, Elder Chairman
