March 2022 update
Dear members and friends of First Presbyterian:
As many may know, the Sanctuary re-opened to an in-person worship option beginning Sunday February 6, 2022.
We had closed in January due to the surge in Covid infections in our community, but as the numbers began a downturn Session voted to re-open the church. We continue to offer virtual worship service via our Facebook Livestream for those who are not healthy or not yet comfortable coming in-person. While in the church building, you may wear a mask based on your personal preference, informed by your personal level of risk.
Along with re-opening the sanctuary on February 6, we re-opened the nursery, and Confirmation as well as Sunday School classes resumed. The nursery will remain open, and classes will continue provided there’s no further surges in the area.
We’re very happy to report that beginning March 6 our Fellowship hour following worship service, with coffee and treats, has resumed. The opportunity to visit with fellow members is long overdue and we’re hopeful this will continue well into the future as it once did in our pre-Covid days.
Join us in prayer that this new normal will continue to go in the direction of our former pre-Covid normal.
We look forward to seeing you in-person or virtually on Sundays at 10am, and as always 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.
