Online Worship Only
Beginning January 9, 2022
Dear members and friends of First Presbyterian:
At a special Session meeting, the decision was made to move to online worship only beginning Sunday January 9, 2022. We are all disappointed to have to make this shift, but it seems to be the best way to go for now.
This decision is based on the recommendation of the Wisconsin Council of Churches and many other organizations in our area as Covid-19 cases surge. Our compassionate response is to pause our in-person gatherings but continue to join together virtually by way of our Facebook livestream services for the time being. The Session will reconsider this decision at its regular meeting on January 25, 2022 and it is our sincere hope to be able to come back together in person very soon.
Thank you for understanding and we hope to see you virtually on Sundays at 10am.
Please be careful and stay well!
SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP SERVICES
The stained-glass window in the front of our sanctuary reminds us that Jesus invites everyone to participate in worship.
At First Presbyterian Church of Green Bay, in-person worship is an option every Sunday at 10am but for those who are not ready or able to attend in person, we are pleased to offer virtual worship through our Facebook Livestream. Thanks to the time and talents of several people in the congregation — and a big upgrade to our AV system in the sanctuary — this will be a continuing option. You will notice reminders on Facebook of when services begin and prior to Sunday, you will also see our social media feature – Your Sunday Preview. Each week we will post the upcoming Sunday reading and a snapshot of the sermon focus and other special elements of the service. We encourage everyone to share our published posts with all your friends and family so we can welcome new members into our community of faith.
Also, every week we publish the upcoming Sunday Bulletin (below), so you will have the opportunity to review this in advance of our service and print it for use during the service.
We look forward to seeing everyone at 10am Sundays, in-person or online!
SPECIAL WORSHIP SERVICES
Special seasons of the church year bring other opportunities for worship. We participate in a joint Thanksgiving service with nearby faith communities, and we offer a “Blue Christmas” service in December for those who may be grieving or especially sad or lonely at that time of year. Lent, the six weeks after Easter, brings opportunities for mid-week prayer services as well, and Holy Week also includes additional services for Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.
