  • You can pre-register for the following Sunday’s service starting on Monday at 9 a.m. each week.
  • If you need to cancel, please let us know by contacting Elizabeth Roth at  or 719-884-6106.
Sitting with Consistent Social Groups
  • In accordance with El Paso County guidelines we are welcoming groups up to 10 people to sit together if you are from the same household or consistent social group.
  • Everyone in your party must be registered to attend.
  • Please complete one registration form for everyone in your group.
  • Your party will be seated once everyone in your group has arrived and checked in.
When You Arrive
  • If you have registered to sit with your consistent social group, your group will be seated once everyone in your group has arrived.
  • Sanctuary and Worship Center venues, high-touch areas and restrooms will be sanitized throughout all services and hand-sanitizing stations are available at each entrance and exit.
  • Worship Center worshipers will enter through the Weber Street main doors, while Sanctuary Worshipers will enter through the Bijou Street doors and ramp.
  • Masks are required to cooperate with state and local guidelines. Staff and volunteers will be wearing masks except when actively leading from the worship platform.
  • Upon arrival you will be asked health screening questions. We ask that you honestly evaluate your own health and, please, stay home if you feel at all sick.
  • Our awesome volunteer teams will greet you with a wave and a smile instead of a handshake or hug.

What to Expect in the Service

  • Sanctuary and Worship Center seating has been adjusted to accommodate social distancing guidelines by placing household groups six feet apart.
  • We will not be handing out printed bulletins, but we will have a digital bulletin available on our Sunday Hub that you can open on your phone by visiting firstprescos.org/SundayHub. Don’t forget to bring your phone with you into worship!
  • We will not have Bibles, Hymnals or printed materials available but the lyrics and Scriptures will be displayed on the screens. Please bring your own Bible.
  • We will not be passing the plates for either the offering or communion. Instead, at the end of the worship service we will give our gifts at the offering boxes placed at the exits from both the worship venues. You can also give online at firstprescos.org/givenow.
  • Kids are welcome at both services so you can worship as a family. There will be no childcare, children’s or student ministries programming.
  • Adult Sunday Communities won’t meet in person at the church on Sunday mornings during this time.
  • We will not serve coffee or donut holes during this time.
  • No water fountains will be available. Please bring your own water bottle.

In the last 14 days, if you or a family member have been experiencing any symptoms, we encourage you to worship online instead.

Worship Host Sites

Throughout the COVID-19 season, Worship Host Sites have become a key way we worship together spread out across the city. Even as we open for in-person worship, Worship Host Sites will continue to be the way many of us worship well, especially if you are unable to participate in the larger on-campus worship services. If you are not comfortable returning to in-person worship, we encourage you to jump into a Worship Host Site.

Find a Worship Host Site

We have designed an online map displaying open Worship Host Sites hosted by First Pres individuals, couples and families. Locate a Worship Host Site near you and contact the leader for more information.

How Can We Pray For You?

As we're navigating the new normal together, if you or someone that you know needs prayer, we'd love the opportunity to pray with you.
