Worship at First Presbyterian Church
To learn more about the structure and amenities available during our Worship services, please visit our WHAT TO EXPECT page.
During the COVID-19 Crisis, we will continue to livestream our services every Sunday morning at 10 AM on the church's public Facebook page which can be found here: FPC Haddon Heights Facebook Page.
We currently offer a Hybrid Worship model (both in-person and livestreamed for virtual worshippers). In-person Worship is open to a maximum of 42 people each Sunday with pre-registration required in order to limit the in-person attendees to a safe number for our building. The service will be livestreamed for our church family and friends who are uncomforable or unable to attend in-person so they can continue to worship from their homes. Those worshipping in-person must follow our precautions and guidelines in order to maintain everyone’s health and safety. These protocols are posted on our COVID Response to In-Person Worship which is located HERE. We encourage you to review these protocols before attending an in-person service.
Registration for in-person Worship is open from Monday at 9:15 am through Thursday at 1:45 pm for each week preceding that Sunday's service. To register for an upcoming service, you can call the office at 856-547-6139 or use the registration form below.
Some Items to Note:
- The online registration form will only be operational during the days/hours noted above. The form will ask for your name, phone number, how many will be attending, and whether the chairlift is needed.
- If you choose to call the church office to register, please make sure you call during the days/hours noted above for your registration to be recorded. In the event you need to leave a message during the specified registration times noted above, please be sure to leave your name, phone number, number of persons attending, and whether the chairlift is needed.
- No later than Friday, you will be advised by phone if you cannot attend due to all the “slots” being full. We recognize that the same people may always be the first to register, and they would be the ones attending each week. To avoid people being shut out week after week, the following policy will be instituted:
Subsequent to the first week, registrations in order of receipt will be reviewed. Those who have not attended in any previous weeks will be given priority over those who have attended in the past month. Once those who haven’t previously attended have been added to the registration list, the list will be filled in order of receipt.
- The registration list is very important. Should you be unable to attend after registering, please contact the office as soon as possible at 856-547-6139 to advise of the change. It is important that you not offer your spot to another person as there may be a waiting list; we will contact the first person on the waiting list to take your place.
We recognize that some people may be advised that they cannot attend during a given week due to our spaces being filled. We sincerely apologize for that and ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate this new "normal" regarding in-person Worship services. Please check back here often for updates to our attendance protocols and procedures.
