FCCW COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS
FCCW has suspended in-person Sunday worship services until further notice and has implemented a modified plan for use of the building to try and limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Please stay home if you are not well! If you need assistance getting things at the grocery store or running errands please be in contact with Krista or Gina who can put you in touch with someone who can help.
These are the activities that will be suspended until until further notice.
* Food related events (potlucks, coffee hour)
* Committee Meetings (meet via phone, video chat or email)
* Office Hours - will be working from home and sometimes in the office. Call or email
* Pastoral Visits - call or email Gina if urgent. Happy to do phone calls.
* Outside groups using the building
* Choir practice
We will get through this time together. It will require a patience and grace from us that will stretch and grow us in new ways. We will be in touch frequently as things continue to unfold and change. If you would like to be added to church email notifications, please send us an email at email@example.com

An Advent Adventure
All Saints’ Episcopal Church and First Congregational Church, UCC in Wolfeboro invite you to
engage in an active Advent by reading a piece of Scripture each day, reflecting upon it, and
sharing via your favorite social media. We ask that you share in one (or more) of three ways:
Listening: Share a link to a song that the daily reading and reflecting reminds you of;
Reading: Share a brief written memory or thought based on the daily reading and
Visualizing: Share a photo or short video based on the daily reading and reflecting you have done.
Whatever your response is, do share it with the hashtag: #WolfeboroAdvent2020 on your
site(s) and feel free to post on your congregation’s site(s) as well.
Sundays @ 8:30 am
To resume on 1/3
