UMC, Frankston moves services,

classes back to Family Life Center

Beginning Sunday, Sept. 12, The United Methodist Church of Frankston is holding Sunday School classes, nursery and worship services in the Family Life Center, South Weldon at East Main, church officials report.

The move is being made because of the rise in COVID-19 cases and the fact that it is easier to exercise social distancing in the FLC, they said.

For those unable to attend in person, the worship service will continue to be shown on Facebook.

Sunday school classes are being held in the various rooms at the FLC and the worship service in the gymnasium/auditorium area, it was reported..
