In-Person Worship Survey Results – Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate in Floris’ In-Person Worship Survey. The survey is now closed, but here are four key takeaways:
- You find that online worship has met or exceeded your expectations, with 94% of you responding in these two categories.
- When in-person worship resumes, you want it done safely. A majority of youfeel the maximum safe worship capacity should be 40% or less of our total sanctuary seating capacity.
- A majority of the congregation in all age categories plans to take personal precautions when returning to in-person worship such as wearing masks, no hand shaking and maintaining safe distance.
- Most of you hope we can return to in-person worship by fall, but 28% of you indicated you will not be comfortable resuming in-person worship until a vaccine is available.

Special Request for People with 3D Printers – Floris’ Mask Sewing Ministry is providing “earsavers” to nurses and healthcare workers. Earsavers are small devices that allow healthcare workers to wrap their masks in a way that alleviates the pain and discomfort that comes with wearing a mask all day. If you have a 3D printer and would like to find out how you can help print earsavers, please contact Katherine Schram – Floris Mask Challenge.
New Sermon Series “This Pandemic Life” – Our lives have changed and we are dealing with heightened anxiety and uncertainty. During times such as these, it is important to seek God and the wisdom of the Bible. In this new sermon series, we will use the book of James to learn how to graciously walk through hardships and challenges. Join us Sunday for “Rest is the Best”.
Reminder: Honoring Our Graduates – Floris would like to offer an opportunity to celebrate and honor all of our graduates during this time of quarantine. If you have not yet done so, please send us a picture of your high school, college or graduate school graduate and provide their information at this link by June 3. We are creating a celebration slideshow that we will play during our June 7 worship service.
