In response to the COVID-19 Virus, FUMC is modifying many of our practices and policies on a temporary basis. Including:
- Our worship services are streamed each Sunday morning at 9 a.m. on our YouTube Channel, where you will also find video recordings of past services. You can download our current Sunday Bulletin and Prayer Concerns as you hold our church family in prayer throughout the week. Sunday services are also available on 94.1 FM at 11 a.m.
- The Church Office and Grounds are closed until further notice.
- All events and class are also cancelled.
- It’s with an abundance of caution that the Food Pantry has been closed until further notice.
- If you are having a food emergency or are in severe need of food please call 931-526-2177 on Wednesdays from 1-3 p.m. for an appointment.
Advice from the CDC
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (the time it would take you to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ twice) or, if soap is not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw it in the trash. If a tissue isn’t available, cough or sneeze into your elbow, not your hands.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Follow CDC’s recommendations for using facemasks, which is for people who show symptoms of COVID-19, to help prevent the spread of disease to others, and for health workers and caregivers in close settings.
- Practice healthy habits: get sleep, eat nutritious food, drink fluids, be physically active and manage stress.
- Keep current prescription medications in regular supply, with at least a 30-day supply of needed health items.
- Learn how your local public health authorities will provide guidance to your community and stay informed.
- Learn how your children’s school or daycare, and your workplace plan to handle a possible outbreak. Create a plan to accommodate any closings, event cancellations or postponements.
- If you care for older adults or children, plan and prepare for caring for them, should they or you become sick.
