As soon as this information was released, we contacted our Reopening Team with a proposal reflecting the new CDC decisions. It was approved and then forwarded to our Executive Board. They also approved the proposal. The result is that, effective immediately:
Fully vaccinated people are welcome to worship at FUMC Colleyville without masks or social distancing. We recommend that others continue to wear masks, and we welcome anyone who desires to wear a mask to continue to do so.
There will be designated seating in both the sanctuary and Event Center for people who desire to worship with masks and remain socially distanced. In the sanctuary, the balcony and the four pews on the left hand side (when you walk in the sanctuary) underneath the balcony will be reserved for people who want to remain socially distanced. In the Event Center, the two back rows on the right hand side (when you walk in the Event Center) will be reserved for people who want to remain socially distanced.
We are excited about this positive turn and look forward to seeing many more of you on Sunday!
As we continue making progress toward normalcy, please be in prayer for the people of India and those living in neighboring countries that remain overwhelmed by Covid-19.
Grace and Peace,
We have exciting news to share! After discussions with the Reopen Task Force and Executive Board regarding the improving COVID numbers and increasing vaccinations, we are moving to Phase 5 of the Reopen Plan. Some important information to note:
We currently are offering two worship services:
9:00 am Traditional Service in the Sanctuary, with the organ, hymns, and Pastor Mike preaching
11:11 am Contemporary Service in the Event Center, with the praise band and Pastor Katie preaching
Both of these services are hybrid, which means that you can participate in person or online.

We have good news to share! We have now moved to into Phase 5 of our reopening plan. Phase 5 allows our children’s ministry to resume in person meetings.
For groups who wish to meet onsite, the group leader must make a reservation with the church office by emailing or calling 817-281-5254. Facilities will be cleaned between each group gathering.
We encourage you to continue to stay safe and diligent as we move into Phase 5. Thank you for your continued support, understanding, and patience as we navigate through this process of reopening.
Grace and Peace,
Pastor Mike and Pastor Katie
FUMC Colleyville Reopen Plan Summary
The gradual re-entry into our FUMC Colleyville campus will occur in five phases with incremental engagement and access to our campus. Online worship and ministry will continue through each phase. Each phase includes the previous additions from earlier phases.
The outline below highlights the current state of the campus reentry actions and plans:
Phase 1: All ministries online.
Phase 2a: Internal adult and youth groups allowed to meet outside on church grounds, with strict safety guidelines, and an online option. The maximum number will be determined by government mandate.
Phase 2b: Internal adult and youth groups allowed to meet inside church in groups of 10 people or less, with strict safety guidelines, and an online option.
Phase 3: Worship on campus with strict safety guidelines, in addition to online worship. Adult and youth groups can meet inside the church building, with the maximum number determined by government mandate.
Phase 4: External groups can begin to meet at the church.
Phase 5: Children’s ministry programming resumes in the church building.
