Together again!

FPC resumes in-person worship

First Presbyterian Church Athens is now offering in-person worship opportunities as well as recorded services posted online.
 
As of Sunday, Sept. 13, the church will be meeting for its regular times and services: the 8:30 am contemporary service and the 11:00 am traditional worship service.
 
After much prayer and discussion, the Session, or church board of directors, decided in August to offer the opportunity for in-person worship for all the members of our church family who desire to attend. This is being offered in addition to the online services on both this website and our Facebook page.
 
The in-person option does come with certain guidelines that will help assure the health and wellbeing of our congregation. For example, masks will be required as you enter and leave our worship areas. If you don’t have a mask, one will be provided.
 
Hand sanitizers continue to be available at the entrance to our worship areas, and their use is encouraged.
 
We will be practicing social distancing at both services. As always, families are encouraged to sit together. Others are encouraged to observe distancing recommendations.
 
People attending our 11:00 am service will notice there are no paper bulletins, hymnals or Bibles in the pews. The entire service will be broadcast on the monitors for the time being.
 
Offering plates will be located just outside our worship areas to receive your tithes and offerings, thereby eliminating the need to pass the plates.
 
On Communion Sundays, pre-packaged communion elements will be available just outside our worship areas. You are encouraged to pick them up on your way into the service, thereby eliminating the need to pass plates containing the elements.
 
Links to all our recorded worship services can be found below by scrolling to the bottom of the website.
 
FPC Athens looks forward to welcoming you in person or on the web! Please join us!

You can help our missionaries!

Based in Bangkok, the Rev. Dr. Sharon Bryant (right) is a Presbyterian minister who serves as the coordinator of Christian volunteers for the Church of Christ in Thailand. In addition to recruiting volunteers, she also leads and helps place English teachers in various schools throughout Thailand. First Presbyterian Church Athens has supported Dr. Bryant's work for several years, and there are many ways to help! We encourage our members and friends to choose one of the options below and support our brothers and sisters in Christ!

 

1. Find Dr. Bryant on Facebook and share her posts.

 

2. Follow and share Dr. Bryant's blog about her work in Thailand: click here to visit.

 

3. Connect directly with the volunteers! They would love to hear messages of encouragement from their supporters. You can send messages to sharon.bryant@pcusa.org.

 

4. Set up a Skype or Zoom call with Dr. Bryant to visit "face-to-face" with the volunteers.

 

5. Pray regularly for the Church of Christ in Thailand, the staff, and the volunteers.
