FUMC Updates due to COVID-19
November 5, 2020 Update
THE CHURCH BUILDING IS ON LOCKDOWN.
OPEN FOR DELIVERIES ONLY.
STAFF HOURS MAY BE LIMITED.
Both services are closed to the public at this time.
11:00 a.m. worship service will be on Facebook with the live
feed starting at 10:55 a.m. Follow the link below.
The Winside, Stanton and Norfolk First UMC buildings are CLOSED.
The COVID-19 risk dial for Madison, Stanton, and Wayne Counties has increased dramatically. Madison and Stanton counties are now well into the red category, while Wayne county has moved to extremely high orange.
The Administrative Councils of all three congregations have approved plans to close under these conditions. Even though Wayne County is not yet red, the pastors are a common point of contagion between all three congregations, and so onsite gatherings will not take place until further notice.
The final onsite gathering will be the Norfolk Men's Meeting on Thursday morning November 5, so that they may discuss the immediate future.
As of 8:00 am Thursday, November 5 all Worship, Bible Study, Meetings, and all other functions will be virtual. Funerals, Weddings, and Baptisms will have strict limits on attendance.
The congregations will not automatically resume onsite activities immediately when the risk dial drops to orange. Only after there is a significant and sustained decline in the risk assessment will onsite gatherings resume.
Our buildings may be closed, but remember, the people are the church.
