Survey about FPC Reopening—Your Input Needed

The FPC Reopening Team is seeking your feedback about your needs and preferences as we look to start reopening in coming weeks and months. If you haven’t done so already, we encourage you to complete our brief confidential survey which includes questions about your current feelings regarding returning to regular church activities as the state and local governments lift restrictions on public gatherings through their phased plan. As a thank you, you will be entered into a raffle to win an Anthem gift card! Complete the survey now. 

FPC’s Phased Reopening Plan

Exciting news! FPC’s Session (board of Elders) has adopted a phased reopening plan drafted by FPC’s Reopening Team. The new plan follows state guidance and is a living document that will be updated by the Reopening Team as circumstances continue to develop. Download the summary of the plan here. We are now in “Phase 2” of the plan. If you want to submit comments or questions, remember to visit the FPC Reopening Team web page.

Pierce County has entered “Phase 2” of Washington State’s reopening plan. That means our church may be able to start reopening some in-person activities in coming weeks.

Message from Pastor Eric about FPC Reopening Team

Dear First Pres Family,

I just wanted to let everyone know that we are going to be continuing to meet via livestream for the foreseeable future. We have recently formed a reopening team that is developing a strategy for reopening the church which maintains the safety of our church members and the community as a whole. You can expect to receive regular updates from this team in the coming weeks. In the meantime, we are so grateful for all of the ways that we have been able to continue to pursue the mission of FPC during these challenging times. Thank you all for your partnership in this important work.


Pastor Eric
