Updated August 2nd, 2020
Due to a recent Covid 19 case in our congregation, we are suspending in person Sunday School and Worship services until August 23rd. There WILL NOT be any Sunday School class or in-person worship this Sunday, August 2. We WILL have a LIVE BROADCAST of our worship service only. Our live broadcast can be seen on Facebook at 11am or other social media venues later, such as our website, podcast or u-tube. Also, August Monthly Meeting will not be held. We will catch up on the business of the Meeting in September.
We are taking active steps to be cautious during these covid-19 days. We will keep you informed about future worship service broadcasts. It is the plan to return to in-person worship on August 23 when we have a minister candidate scheduled to come and bring the worship message. Rusty is on vacation August 9th and 16th.
**Please share this information with people you know who may attend so we can get the word out. Thank you!!**

***FCNC 3rd ANNUAL SESSIONS—NOTE CHANGES***
August 7 & 8 at CONCORD FRIENDS MEETING
The Program Committee and the Administrative Oversight Committee are trying to conduct our Annual Sessions as safely as possible. Quaker Lake is unable to host us. Although we are a religious organization and exempt from state mandates, Quaker Lake is designated as a conference center and therefore falls under the present Phase 2 guidelines that limit indoor gatherings to 10 and outdoor to 25. Concord Friends has graciously offered the use of their Family Life Center August 7-8 for our Annual Sessions.
We are asking each monthly meeting to have one representative in attendance. Masks will be required and social distancing maintained. Meals and refreshments will be served individually.
Paul Routh will be broadcasting the sessions on Facebook Live so everyone can safely feel a part of the proceedings. The reports you would typically receive in your registration packet will be posted on the website.
Those representatives attending in person may use the existing registration form. Those participating virtually will not have to register. There is a revised schedule. We have an abbreviated format since our invited guest speaker from Iowa is unable to be with us and there will be no workshops. Jeff Barnes, pastor of Kernersville Friends, will speak on Friday evening. We plan to be finished with business Saturday afternoon.
Please continue to pray for our meetings, our communities, and our yearly meeting. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please email me or give me a call.
Brenda McKinney, FCNC Clerk
OPEN PRAYER INVITATION: You are invited to come any weekday morning between 10AM-12NOON to pray in our worship room. The office staff will be happy to let you in.
