This Week’s Bulletin
Replay past sermons on our
YouTube channel

As the numbers of Covid infections continue to remain quite low in Pennington County, more and more people obtain the vaccine each week, and many organizations ease the
 precautions “required” in their settings, the Leadership Council has met to determine what is most appropriate for First UMC at this time.

Effective May 2, masks will be considered optional for worship attendees. People are
welcome to wear one or not wear one. We ask that everyone treat one another with love and
acceptance no matter their choice on this.

We will continue to provide masks at the entrances for those who would like one, and
encourage anyone feeling the slightest bit ill, or unsafe, to stay home and take advantage of our online worship.

Additionally, our fellowship time in the Parlor will once again be offered for those who would like to participate, effective immediately.

We encourage everyone to understand that if “conditions on the ground” should change, masks may once again be required for a time, and fellowship time could be temporarily

Thank you so much for dealing with this complex issue with grace.
