Information about Opening for In-House Worship

Vidalia First UMC has a Church Reopening Task Force that is already working on a plan for the reopening of the church for in-person worship.  Our goal to get back to worship as soon as we can safely and responsibly. We are looking to try to open on June 21, the earliest Sunday that Bishop Bryan and our District Superintendent Chris Ramsey, recommend South Georgia Methodist Churches starting back in-person worship. Our Task Force will keep our congregation informed about our plan and any changes regarding the date of reopening. Please continue to pray for our Task Force as it develops our church's plan.  -Jim Smith, Pastor
