We are so excited to offer a fellowship event for you and your family to attend! We have missed seeing your faces as we are SO ready to gather (6 feet apart outside, of course) to eat our own food in our own space, but still be together on the church grounds! Please read through the FAQs below so that we're all on the same page and PLEASE RSVP by September 10th so that we know how many people to expect!
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING
You are responsible for bringing EVERYTHING you will need for you and your family to have a picnic. That means, chairs/blanket, silverware, plates, food, cups, drinks etc. EVERYTHING. FHPC WILL NOT be providing any of those things! :)
WHAT WILL WE DO AT THIS EVENT?
The staff will welcome you, and encourage you to set up your picnic on one of the spaced out spray painted spots on the grass. Choose your spot, and after we pray for each of the meals everyone brought, you can begin to eat. We encourage conversing with people around you and enjoying the company of our church family on the grass. We will not have any official activities, we are just excited for the opportunity to see your face in person! :) Once everyone is done eating, you are free to leave as you please.
WHEN DO WE NEED TO WEAR MASKS?
You will need to properly wear a mask (over your nose and mouth) upon your arrival and anytime that you are not SITTING at your picnic area. Please wear a mask anytime that you are standing/walking.
WHAT WILL FHPC PROVIDE?!
We will provide extra masks and hand sanitizer if you need them. We will also provide the lovely grass and spaced out picnic spots for you to sit! :)
WILL THERE BE BATHROOMS?
The building will be open ONLY for bathrooms and we ask that you DO NOT congregate inside the building. Get in and get out, please! :)
RAIN OR WET GROUND BACK UP PLAN
If it rains or the ground is too wet for us to be outside, we will communicate via our facebook page and website that the event is being rescheduled for the following week!
WHAT IF ONE OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS FEELS SICK IN THE DAYS SURROUNDING THE EVENT?
If it's before, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE keep all of your family home. This will not be our last opportunity, but we do NOT want anybody to get sick. If you are feeling sick in the days following, PLEASE email the office immediately to let us know.
