FRC is reopening this Sunday. We are not sure if we will need two services. So, we will be starting with just one service this Sunday at 10:30 AM. We can have up to 25 people in the sanctuary, including the worship team and those that work the technology. If there is overflow, we can have 20 people in the back hall to watch the service on TV.
The 10:30 AM FRC Facebook live stream (www.facebook.com/FRCPAL/) will continue for those who choose to stay home.
Please know that the church will be thoroughly sanitized before you come. There will be hand sanitizer at the entrances and throughout the church. The bathrooms will be available and equipped with disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, soap, and water.
PLEASE KNOW THAT IF YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO CHURCH, YOU AGREE TO AND CAN EXPECT THE FOLLOWING:
BEFORE YOU COME:
- I will contact the church on Saturday by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), text (201-790-4616), or phone (201-947-7240) that I will be attending service the next day.
- I will wear a face mask over my nose and mouth while at church.
- I will stand and sit in places where I will be six feet from others (not counting my own family). I will not shake hands and avoid physical contact.
- I will check my temperature before coming to church: if you have one, please do not come to church.

DURING THE SERVICE:
- I will not change seats during a service.
- There will be no passing of offering baskets.

Life everywhere and in everything is not normal yet, but we hope that FRC will continue to point you to our great savior, who provides us with a sense of normalcy in whatever difficulty and challenge we are facing.
