Details for Gathering in the Family Life Center
March 15, 2020
After much prayer and diligent research, our deacons and staff have made the decision to gather digitally to worship tomorrow morning. There will be no services on our campus. This is a decision made, not out of fear, but out of a desire to stand with our community and our state in an effort to keep people safe and healthy. We are confident that God is in control and that we can trust Him with a future that feels uncertain at this time. Please join us online through Facebook or on our website faithmonroe.com at 10:45 am as we collectively worship from our homes. Please keep in mind, that although we will not be meeting, the financial obligations of the church still must be met. You are welcome to mail it in or you can use any of our online giving methods. They are as follows:
-Online Bill Pay through your bank
-Through our website, www.faitthmonroe.com/give
-Text any amount to 84321 to give and follow the prompts to set up this method
Most of all, please pray for our leadership, our church family, our community, and our world as we navigate waters we have not ever navigated before. God bless you in the week ahead. We will see you online in the morning!

Dear Family of Faith,
We want you to know that we are staying abreast of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation globally and locally. We will continue to keep a watchful eye as events unfold. We want you to know that we are making it our priority to take extra steps to ensure that our facilities are clean and sanitary for everyone’s health and safety.
To help keep the spread of all germs down to a minimum, we are going to have a combined, blended service, Sunday, at 10:45 am with nursery and children’s church. We will not have Sunday School or evening service. We will reschedule our monthly Men's Ministry Breakfast, the Focus Group meeting, the SKIT (Senior Ministry) lunch on Tuesday, Wednesday Evening gatherings, and the Student Spaghetti lunch fundraiser next week. Stone Soup tonight and Victory Sunday School class Movie night tomorrow night will also be rescheduled at a later time.
For SUNDAY, we have hand sanitizer stationed just inside each entrance and are requesting that everyone take advantage of this upon entering the building. We are also going to refrain from shaking hands during our welcome time. If you or your family members are sick, have a weakened immune system, or if you are uncomfortable gathering publicly in a crowd, please worship with us via our live stream on Facebook or our website.
We are also altering our method of worshiping through giving. Our ushers will be stationed at each of our sanctuary doors with an offering plate after our service. You can give your offering to the Lord at that time. As always, you can use any of our online giving methods. They are as follows:
Online Bill Pay through your bank
Through our website www.faithmonroe.com/give
Text any amount to 84321 to give and follow the prompts to set up this method
We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed of any changes to our schedule over the next few weeks. Please pray for our community, the global situation, and each other. Look for opportunities to minister to one another and others to demonstrate God's love in action.
You may want to visit CDC.gov for national updates and things you can do to avoid becoming sick such as washing your hands. You can find additional updates about church on our website, Facebook or Instagram social accounts.
