Today the Contra Costa County Health Department issued an ordinance requiring all county residents to shelter in place in their homes beginning midnight tonight and continuing until April 8. You can read the full ordinance here. In response, FPCC is making some changes in the coming weeks to help protect everyone’s health. See the end of this email for a full list of all canceled FPCC programs through April 7.
Join in! New Ways to Participate
FPCC is ready to try some new ways to make sure we stay connected in the coming weeks.
Stay Connected! Let’s Not Lose Touch
The church office will be closed from Tuesday, March 17 through Tuesday, April 7 and will not be receiving any voicemails. But we still want to hear from you!
Our church and all other non-profits still rely on regular giving to keep things running even as we won’t be gathering in person. Consider giving from home with Zelle, the safe online giving app that partners with your bank. Sign up through your bank’s mobile app and select FPCCZelle@fpcconcord.org.
The following FPCC events have been canceled through April 7th:
We look forward to rescheduling many of these events when we can. Even though we may not see each other very much for a few weeks, your church family loves you and we will continue to hold each other in prayer.
The Contra Costa County Health Department has declared a county-wide state of emergency in response to the local spread of coronavirus. You can read their statement and guidance for social distancing here.
At FPCC we are taking the situation seriously, but we don’t believe that there is cause for alarm. We will continue to have our worship service this Sunday, March 15 as well as the Farewell Reception for Susan Soehner during the Fellowship Time.
However, we will be making some changes to help protect everyone’s health, and we encourage anyone with a compromised immune system or underlying health situation, anyone classified as part of a vulnerable population, or anyone not feeling well to please stay home.
If you choose to stay home on Sunday morning–good news!
