In Person Services in the Sanctuary

Added on 2.19.21

First United Methodist Church Cross

Both the Moweaqua and Sanner Chapel congregations will be worshipping in our sanctuaries at our usual times of 8:30 am for Sanner and 10:15 am for Moweaqua.  There will still be the requirement for masking and social distancing when we are indoors.

At Moweaqua there will be marked entrance and exit doors to help eliminate a bottle neck of people as we gather. The elevator will be open for use, although we ask that if you are using the elevator maintain distance by using it in family units and making several trips.

As we come back to using our buildings please have patience with each other and with your leaders. Things are different. Decisions have been made using the best science available that will keep people safe from a virus we are still struggling to understand completely. Please see the Church News Letter for more info on coming back.

There will continue to be a time of scripture, prayer and a message live on Facebook at 9:45 a.m. Sunday mornings until further notice. The Facebook link is listed below on this page.  You can also continue to follow the self-guided worship services listed below.
