FUMC HICKORY UPDATES

We continue to monitor ongoing reports from federal, county, and city authorities as well as receiving direction from our Bishop Paul Leeland.

Update: With COVID numbers on the rise, Catawba County still only having a 40% vaccination rate, and positive vaccinated individual cases on the rise as well, the conference is recommending masks be worn for all indoor ministry activities, including worship.

Effective immediately, masks must be worn by all people for all indoor activities as our goal is to do no harm.

Please check back often to stay connected with us!

I Need Help!

We are cooking supper on Wednesday nights! If you would like to reserve a meal, please call the church office. Pick up your dinner in the porte cohere on Wednesdays between 4:45-5:15.

Our staff is still working to visit and help shut-ins. Please contact the church office if you need help with grocery shopping, etc.

How Can You Help?

Pray. Pray for your neighbors, your church leaders, your government leaders, your community medical and emergency workers, and everyone who is finding and adjusting to a new normal.

Check on your elderly neighbors and ask if they need anything. Reach out to folks over text and phone calls. People can feel isolated in these situations, and it is important for all of us to remain in community together.

Please call the church office if you are willing to help us reach out to our congregation and community.
