First Presbyterian is an active church that helps individuals and families grow in the grace and love of Jesus Christ.
We offer a variety of programs for individuals and families and are large enough to offer an array of activities and ministries, but small enough to know each of our members personally. We would love for you to call our church "home."
This website only covers selected highlights so we encourage you to contact the church office at 304 727-2241, stop by, or email us at email@example.com if you have questions or particular areas of interest. Our main message to you is...WELCOME!
First Presbyterian Church St Albans re-opens, Sunday June 14, 2020
Here is what re-opens means:
Staff: will be returning for partial schedule:
Meghan Beha - Monday, Wednesday, Friday 9am - 1pm
Doug Jenkins - Tuesday 10am-3pm, Wednesday 3pm-8pm, Friday 10am-3pm
Circles, Bible Studies, classes may begin again, for congregational groups only.. Please make sure the event, meeting or gathering is on the church schedule - Contact Meghan.
Please wear a mask and be properly distanced, if you come to the church during any of these open hours or small groups.
June 14 will be a small invitation-only live audience in the Fellowship Hall and live- streamed to Facebook Premiere at 10am and available for later viewing on Facebook and Youtube.
Initially, Sundays after June 14 will require reservations, as we will be restricted to 48 worshipers because of social distancing. Masks will be advised, but since not everyone attending may be wearing one, those with health issues are asked to remain home and view the live-stream.
The ONLY entrance will be the rear door under the awning. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available inside the door, and you are invited to bring your own mask, as our supply is limited. The handicap-accessible restroom will be available, and will be monitored and cleaned after every use.
Please bring your own Bible.
Since singing and even joint speaking sends out COVID in tiny aerosols and easily spread, these parts of worship will be led by liturgists and pastor behind plexiglass shields from Fellowship Hall stage, but worshipers, initially will be silently following along.
There will be no refreshment time before or after worship. The best area for any visiting will be outside while maintaining social distancing before and after worship,
If you have any concerns, questions or comments, please contact the Office, Rev. Doug or any of your Session members.
May our prayers that God has heard us call for help and hope, and that an end to the pandemic will be visited upon us.
