COVID-19 VIRUS Concerns about the Corona Virus are real! I don't intend in this note to give suggestions on how to deal with this disease. There is the CDC, Surgeon General of the United States, multiple medical outlets, doctors, hospitals and community organizations who are far better qualified than me to do that. Practice washing your hands with soap and water often, control your coughing and sneezing with a tissue and dispose of the tissue in a covered container. I ask you to refrain from handshakes and hugs for a few weeks and we will greet each other verbally instead. We will be Live streaming our services on Facebook at our scheduled worship times listed on the left side of this page. Our Facebook page is: First UMC Dublin TX May God Bless all that are involved in containing this Pandemic and may they be Successful and may all the Medical Professionals, Doctors, Nurses and Nurses Aids be safe from this Pandemic. We are so thankful for each and every one of our Medical Professionals for looking out for our well being and caring enough to give, give of their talents, time, compassion and their service!
