First Church

The Leadership Team approved the following at its June, 2015 meeting.

Electronic locks have been installed on the Williams Street door and both doors that lead to the Buxton hallway. An alarm has been installed on the door leading from the sacristy hallway (behind the choir).

To ensure staff, congregation, and guest safety the doors leading to the Buxton Room hallway will be locked between 4pm & 7am. If a meeting or event is scheduled between those hours, instructions will be posted to allow admittance. The alarm that has been installed on the door leading into the Buxton Room hallway from the south door of the sanctuary and Choir Room hallway will activate between 4pm & 7am. This door is clearly marked.

There are sensors on the doors that release the locks when someone exits the hallway.

As of July 1, 2015 the Williams Street door is now being locked according to this schedule:
Sunday: 1:00 pm; re-open at 4:30 pm, and lock at 8:00 pm
Monday: 9:00 pm
Tuesday-Friday: 8:00 pm
Saturday: 12:00 noon
