Dear FCC Family,
The past few months of COVID have been a difficult time for all of us, but we continue to trust that God has
been present and is working all things for good. In many ways, this season has reminded us of what we hold
most dear, and now it presents us with a unique opportunity to further our vision to become a Passionate
Community of Disciple Makers . For the past month, we have had a dedicated team of individuals
brainstorming, discerning, praying, and fasting over the best possible way for us as a large local church family
to Love God , Build the Church , and Reach the World while respecting both our governmental and medical
authorities. With these things in mind, we are excited to announce our plans for Stage 1 of reimplementation
here at First Christian Church of Clinton!
For the month of June, we are partially reopening the church in a phased approach, starting with Stage 1 . What
all does this entail, you ask? Let’s dive into the details….
The front office will now be open Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9am-1pm.
The Neighborhood Care Center will continue operations that have been adjusted for the COVID season.

We will be empowering Midsize Groups to re-engage in their communities as they feel comfortable.
Small communities have always played an integral role in the life of our church. This will include:
● Sunday School Classes
● Small Groups
● JH/HS Students
Our staff will be in contact with teachers and group leaders to help facilitate these gatherings.
In addition to this, we are excited to announce that we are targeting June 21st for relaunching modified
worship gatherings in our sanctuary! Leading up to this date we are focusing on communicating
expectations and guidelines, as well as training volunteers and the congregation in safe gathering practices.
More specific details on these gatherings will come soon.
While all of this movement toward complete reintegration is exciting to many, we know that some of you are
still hesitant to re-engage for valid reasons. If this is you, we completely understand and are in no way
pressuring you to return right away. We invite you to return when you are comfortable. We will be here
when you are ready. In the meantime, we will continue our Facebook Live service on Sunday mornings as
well as our Live Looks throughout the week.
We know that our church family has a diverse array of opinions about how things should be done, and in many
ways that is exactly what makes our community so incredible! However, in a time of division and unrest, we
are called to a unity and witness rooted in Christ that contrasts the ways of the world.
We encourage each of you to continue praying for this reimplementation process. We also would love for
you to join us in fasting on Mondays for this process, in addition to the final stages of the lead minister search,
and the turmoil our country is facing. We’re grateful to partner with you in this!
Peace & Blessings,
The Leadership of FCC
