Welcome to First UMC! Thanks for dropping by our website. We hope you’ll find all you need to know through this site! If not, you can always call us at (605) 665-2991 or drop us a note, and someone will quickly get back to you.
We would love to have you join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 8:30 am and 11:00 am
Path Forward - In-Person Worship We will have two services: 8:30am (contemporary) and 11am (traditional). We will also continue to livestream our services through our website and on our Youtube channel. Safety protocols will be in place. Please recognize that the protocols and safety measures may be considered too conservative to some individuals while others may need further levels of safety before they choose to worship in the sanctuary. Whatever your preferences, we request that you respect the protocols we have put in place for the safety and well-being of all who would come. We want the choice to be yours and that if you choose to remain at home for worship, we support that decision and are developing ways to further connect you to the life of the church while remaining physically distant. The following safety protocols have been put in place at the discretion of the Covid Task Force: • Proper Hygiene. If you are feeling sick, please stay home and join us for worship via our online options. For those in the building, please make use of the sanitizer stations available and use good hand washing techniques in the bathrooms. • Masks Required. We require that masks be worn while in the building for anyone aged 4 and up. If you are physically unable to mask or unwilling to mask, we ask that you join us for worship via our online options. • Temperature Screening. We will be screening for temperatures as you enter the building. Anyone with a temperature over 100.4 will be asked to return home and join us for worship via our online options. • Attendance Tracking. We will be tracking attendance by having everyone check in. We hope to streamline this process, but you will be expected to give your name and contact information. This is for contact tracing purposes in the event that there is Covid-19 exposure at the church. We will also be taking a photo in the sanctuary for contact tracing mapping purposes. • No Fellowship. At this time we will not be hosting fellowship within the church. You are encouraged to visit once outside and away from the doors. • Limited Seating. The pews in the sanctuary will be marked off. We ask that you only sit in open pews and 6 feet from anyone who is not a member of your household. Ushers will assist you. Ushers will also dismiss you after the service.
