covid 19 updates

Dear First Baptist Family,

Tonight (1/5), our deacons met and approved my recommendation that because of the spike of our region’s COVID numbers and the spread of the coronavirus among our members, we suspend all in-person gatherings for the next two weeks, Sunday, January 10 through Wednesday, January 20. On the week of January 17, we will evaluate where we stand concerning future in-person meetings.

We encourage you to join us for live streaming worship on January 10 and 17. For Sunday School classes who wish to meet online, they will be able to do so through Zoom and other virtual platforms. Please contact Eric Marston if you need any assistance setting this up.

Because First Baptist’s Daycare, Preschool, School of the Arts, and AO House are so highly monitored with much fewer participants than our other in-person gatherings, they will remain open for operation during the next two weeks.

Please pray that God would heal us of this pandemic and revive us again (Psalm 85:6). Call me if you need me.

God bless you,
Pastor Jimmy
