Ministry Updates During COVID-19

We’re open for in-person services! Read the latest communication here from Pastor Tim and the FBC Elders.

We’re excited to be meeting together again as we worship the Lord. We will continue to keep extra safety measures in place. Below are health/safety features you can expect in-person on Sundays:

    • An entrance will be open so you will not need to touch a door handle.
    • Masks covering your nose and mouth are required to be worn.
    • Bulletins will be available for you to pick up from a table near the hand sanitizer.
    • Our ushers, greeters, and pastors will NOT be initiating hugs or handshakes.
    • No coffee, snacks, or refreshments will be served, but you’re welcome to bring bottled water with you.
    • We ask people to not gather in the foyer before or after service, rather fellowship outside.
    • We’ve moved some classes around to different rooms to help with social distancing:
      • Crossways (Jr. High & High School) – Now meeting in Room 6
      • Remain (College & Career) – Now meeting in Room 7
      • Adult Sunday School – Now meeting in Room 8

Still Available Online
As always, we will continue streaming the services online via YouTube, Facebook, and our Sunday Services page. For those who are more vulnerable to COVID-19, the elderly or at-risk, please continue joining us online. You can also participate in a Sunday School class online.

RightNow Media

For those in FBC looking for additional media resources, we have access to a video library called RightNow Media.

As with anything, we encourage you to line everything you read, see, hear up with the truth of God’s Word.
