In Person worship Update

Members and friends of the First Congregational UCC of Watertown:

Our committee wishes to emphasize to the congregation about changes

in Covid protocols that will now in place.  


We are mask affirming.   We respect others who do or do not wear masks.

Our mask affirming policy allows congregational singing with or without masks.

Each congregant should decide whether to participate or not.

We encourage you to think about those around you and their health needs.


For Fellowship and  Fellowship Hall

We will have weekly fellowship.  (But to do so, we will first need more volunteers!)

We will have limited food servers and they will wear disposable gloves.  We will have single serve food portions when possible.


For Worship and the Sanctuary

You will see the return of all hymnals, Bibles,  to the pews.

The Visitor's Guest Book will be returned to the entrance area of the narthex, as well as "Welcome" Information Folders.

Continuation of Prayer  requests being phoned to Laurel by Thursday.  There won't be request cards in the pews, but Pastor Stephen will give an opportunity for oral prayer requests during the service.

We will continue to serve communion with the prepackaged wafer and juice.  

 The offering plates will remain at the back of the sanctuary.

Sincerely,Tom Rusch
