Worship Open to All

All persons may now attend the live Sunday 9:30 worship at the church. We are no longer limiting the number of attendees.  You do not have to call for a reservation. Please join us in person for worship! 

Do I Have to Wear a Mask?

Effective August 5, 2021, due to the advisory from the Washtenaw County Health Department First UMC Ypsilanti will return to wearing masks inside our building regardless of vaccination status.  This is to protect everyone for the COVID-19 Delta Variant.  
 

In addition, we will continue to social distance and practice good handwashing techniques.

Is Social Hour after worship resuming?

Social hour will not resume yet.

 

Can food be shared? 

You may bring, for your own use, food and prepackaged items such as drinks (bottles or cans), chips, cookies, etc., but please don’t share any items with another person.

Can groups meet at the church?

Groups meeting in the church may resume, following the same masking and food guidelines as above. And some groups have found the zoom format more conducive to meeting; each group can decide what will work best for them.

Will the Sunday worship continue to be live streamed?

If you aren’t yet comfortable attending live Sunday worship at this time, the service will continue to be live-streamed.  You will find the link to the streamed worship service on Home Page.

Is It Safe to Attend Worship or Meet in Groups?

The Covid team will continue to monitor the situation, and will make recommendations as needed because of changes in our state, county or local status.  

 

If you have not yet been vaccinated, we strongly encourage you to do so!

 

The COVID-19 response team includes Ed Smith (Chair), Lisa Friedman, Gerry Conti, Mark McClure, and Dr. Don.
