Coronavirus (Covid-19) and Church Update:

We are no meeting Onsite and Indoor for our Service at Church at 10am in the Sanctuary. We have also set up an overflow room reserved in our fellowship hall that will be set to join us via FB at 10am to worship together. We will be providing a safe environment honoring social distancing guidelines between individuals and family groups. We require you to wear your mask when walking indoors, using restrooms, and exiting and during the singing.  Once you have been seated, you may take your mask off during the message.We will be doing our part to ensure safety for others and guests.
We have special clipboard activity packs for each family/child during the service.  Activity sheets are yours to keep. We ask that you return the clipboard and crayons afterwards. Thank you in advance.
During this time we will NOT be having nurser/toddler or Childrens ministries. If you have children, they must be with you at all times.  We will have items/activities for then to do during the service.  Thank you for your understanding and patience.
Check out the video link for more details so you and your family can determine if this is a service option that is best for you. I am excited about this opportunity and look forward to seeing all of you soon – it not this Sunday – then sometime in the near future.

Please join us Sunday mornings at 10am on our Facebook Live experience on our FB site. Or on our YouTube page: Ithaca First you tube to follow us live on Sunday morning through the website under Sermons.  We encourage you to look for us at or make sure you join us on Facebook under First Assembly of God.

In the midst of all of this, praise God for technology! If you would like to be on our mailer list, this might be the best time to do so on our website: to receive all necessary updates.

We encourage you to continue to be safe and make wise choices and make sure you answer the following questions before entering the building: 

1. IF YOU FEEL SICK. Those who feel sick in any way – we are encouraging you to stay home and stay safe. 

2. IF YOU ARE JUST GETTING OVER AN ILLNESS. Anyone just getting over an illness we are encouraging you to abide by the new guidelines established for this virus. Please make sure that you are at least 72 hours without any symptoms and without any medications before you get together with anyone. Symptoms include a fever, coughing, or any flu related symptoms. If you are getting over an illness and are less than 72 hours without symptoms, please stay home and stay safe.

How are we going to stay connected?
Church is not just about coming to a building for services, but it is about our relationship with God and each other – both of which is critical for our spiritual and emotional health. So, we are not only working hard to connect and communicate with you. And we ask the same of you.
Follow us online every Sunday 10am. If you are unable to join us, we encourage you to follow us online. 
As we move ahead, I am reminded of the lessons that God showed us Sunday in the service. If God put that much effort into orchestrating the details of Jesus’ life-and-death 1,400 years before it ever happened – there is no detail of our life that he cannot handle! Let us never forget that HE HAS GOT THIS! God is in control and we have nothing to fear!
This is a perfect opportunity for the church – to be the church – and show the world just how powerful God is and what a difference a relationship with him can make in our lives. 
I look forward to the testimonies of what God is doing through this in our lives, families, and community as we Continue to be his light and salt in our world.
Never forget that you are very much loved and always in our thoughts and prayers.
In HIS service and yours.
John Sotero
Lead Pastor
