Dear FCC family,
Thank you for your patience and support even as we try our best to make worship and church life accessible in the midst of keeping everyone safe. Last Sunday, we beta-tested the livestreaming of our Sunday service with a few volunteers, and the general feedback was that the overall experience was positive.
This week, we will still be having Sunday service at FCC but at the same time, we will be making the livestreaming option available to all of you who are receiving this email bulletin. You can find the instructions below and if you have any queries about how to get connected, please email us at email@example.com.
We look forward to welcoming you in person or online this Sunday but please note that our precautionary measures are still in place:
- We will continue taking temperature readings for everyone who will be coming this Sunday
- We will request anyone who is showing symptoms such as runny nose, coughing and breathing difficulties to return home
- We will be providing hand sanitizers and masks at the door for those who might need them
- We will be requesting all attendees to provide your contact number in case there is a need for contact tracing
- We will be having Sunday School this week but we will be monitoring the situation closely to see what’s the best option for the following weeks
- If you are not feeling well, please stay at home and rest. If you are rostered for ministry this Sunday, please don’t feel bad about not being able to turn up. Do let your ministry lead/pastor know beforehand and we will try our best to help cover each other’s duties.
- If you have had travel history to mainland China in the past 14 days, we would appreciate it if you do not attend the service this Sunday for the safety of everyone.
We are approaching the season of Lent, which is the 40-day period leading up to Good Friday and Easter. This is a season of reflection, repentance and renewal. I would like to invite you to join me on a 40-day journey as we go through daily meditations from “Wondrous Encounters: Scripture for Lent” by Richard Rohr. I will be setting up a WhatsApp group for those who would like to journey together over this Lent season, which begins next Wednesday. So if you’re interested, please email your name and contact number to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a community, we are excited to discover new ways to connect more deeply with each other, and with God. I pray that this challenging time will also be a time of growth and renewal for all of us.
