HAPPY 4TH OF 

JULY

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our first church service back in the sanctuary went very well yesterday, Sunday, July 5th, 2020.  We will be taking all precautions that are set up by our FPC COVID-19 Committee as well as the state/county requirements. Please bring a mask with you as it will be required for attending service.  Also, please take your temperature before you leave home to be sure your temp is not elevated (below 100.4).  We also will be adhering to social distancing in the sanctuary.

 

We will still be recording our service on Facebook Live at 11:00 AM each Sunday for those of you who are not yet able to attend service in the sanctuary.  We will also be posting the service here on our website. (It will not be live at 11 AM, but will be posted after service is over).

It can also be found by just searching:  First Presbyterian Church of McAlester

We hope to see you in service in the coming weeks, if it is possible for you to attend. Thank you also for allowing us to continue to bring Christ into your home/lives during this COVID-19 time in our lives.  Remember,nothing can stop the power of Jesus !!!

First Presbyterian Church of McAlester is searching for a pianst and/or organist for Sunday Worship Service.  We are in the process of looking at going back to its normal time of 10:55 AM around mid-June.  More info to come.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not have our usual choir practice from  6-7 PM on Wednesday evenings or prior to service at 10:30 AM Sunday mornings.  Practice days will be negotiable when the choir returns. (organ experience is a plus but not required).  If interested, please contact:  Pastor D.
