FPC Reopening Plans and Information

Welcome to the web page for the FPC Reopening Team. This is a place where you can find information about FPC’s plans to safely reopen its doors for in-person activities in coming months as state and local authorities allow. We look forward to re-gathering together for worship and other activities. Please come back and visit this page for updates.

We also want you to know that despite current restrictions, FPC is still “open for business,” and we hope you stay connected through our online programs, including Sunday worship, youth group, kids’ activities, prayer meetings, an online coffee hour, and more.

Communion at Home Instructions for Sept. 13

Sunday, September 13th is Communion Sunday at FPC Tacoma, and you are invited to join us for our in-person worship service at 10:30 am that day. But if you can’t join us in person because of COVID-19, you can still participate in Communion at home! Because of COVID-19, our Session (Board of Elders) has authorized individuals and families to take the Communion elements in their own homes while they are being taken at the in-person service. Pastor Eric has come up with some guidance for in-home Communion, and if you are planning to take Communion in your own home, we ask you to read and follow the instructions he has written up. Even if you are able to join us in person, you might want to read Pastor Eric’s guidance. His document is a helpful reminder of the meaning of Communion and how to prepare for it. Read the instructions here.
