First Parish Meeting In-Person Beginning This Sunday!
Hybrid Services (in-person & online) Will Return This Weekend!
The COVID Task Force is happy to report that COVID-related metrics have reached a point where it is safe to gather in-person, with some precautions. Masks will be required for everyone over the age of two who enters the building. We encourage you to wear high-quality, fitted, surgical, KN95, or N95 masks. We will practice social distancing in the Sanctuary and will not gather for Coffee Hour.
We look forward to being together again in-person! If you are not able to participate in person, please join us online. (Password = 12345)
