COVID-19 Update for July 7 2020

COVID-19 Update for July 7 2020

Jesus taught us that the greatest command was to love God and to love our neighbor. John Wesley’s General Rules remind us that we are to first do no harm.

Taking steps to keep one another safe is a way we can live into this command and be vigilant and proactive leaders in our community, doing our part to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

To this end, FUMC Allen has made the following decisions, which are effective immediately:


  •  In response to Governor Greg Abbott’s Executive Order GA-29 issued on July 2, 2020, we have postponed plans for returning to in-person worship at FUMC Allen for the time being. We invite you to engage with live-stream worship on Sunday mornings at 11:00am or view video recordings of worship on our sermons page.
  • In response to Governor Abbott’s amended disaster proclamation, Executive Order GA-28, which went into effect on July 3, 2020 and limits in-person gatherings to 10 persons or less, as well as the recent spikes in positive cases and hospitalizations in Collin County, FUMC Allen will not host small groups meeting in person during the month of July. We encourage these groups to migrate their meetings to online platforms.

FUMC Allen’s leadership and staff will be watching closely the hospitalization numbers throughout this month with the hope and prayer that the numbers will decrease.

If you have questions or concerns about these decision, please contact Pastor Mary Beth Hardesty-Crouch.

If you have questions or concerns about your small group, please contact Susan Hale or your small group leader.
