Welcome to First United Methodist Church of Berkeley Springs

Some changes are being considered for this website. Please excuse any updates you see until everything is complete. 

What is staying: Driving directions and phone information, the page for online payments, the directory for members, the Sunday sermons, and a place for announcements and upcoming events. 

Any other information is being evaluated and may disappear. We are excited to be able to update and modify outdated information. Thank you for your patience. 

 

We are once again open for worship at 10:00 on Sunday mornings and all are welcome.

  • We ask that you please use the side office door entrance, or the double door entrance in the rear of the church.  We are keeping the front door closed momentarily to contain the flow of traffic through the building and to minimize the number of ushers required for each service. 
  • Upon entry, all will be required to wear a mask, which will be provided if you don’t have your own, and to sanitize your hands, (sanitizer is also provided).
  • A container will be provided for offerings and tithes at the entrance and exit. We will not be passing an offering plate during the service. You still may choose to give online through our secure website.
  • Seating will be scattered in the sanctuary, with every alternate pew being cordoned off. Families may sit together, but all others are asked to maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other. The balcony will be open for those that choose to sit there, but safe distancing must still be maintained.
  • We ask that you greet each other in the parking lot before and after the service, not in the building, please. The social hall is not yet open. 

 For those who are either unable or uncertain to return yet, please enjoy the Sunday broadcast, a recording of the service which will be uploaded as soon as possible to this site each week following the live service.   

Also, please note: we are only opening for the church worship service, not the Sunday school classes or any Bible studies at this time. You will be informed as soon as a decision is made to take that next step. 

Today and in the days ahead, please continue to be safe, complying with the orders and guidance that we’re receiving from authorities and health care professionals.  Love your neighbor, and be of service where you are able.
