  4. We thank the Lord that we have resumed In-person Worship. In compliance with Provincial health guidelines, 50 seats will be available each week. Before coming to church for worship, please visit the FEC website and click “In-Person Worship” for online registration. Since last week, Youth and College Sunday School students all need to register through FEC website; the deadline is Friday 7 pm due to logistical issues.
