For a safe "no contact" service, we must follow the guidelines from the state and our insurance company. 

  •  It still may be safest for elderly individuals and anyone with underlying health issues to continue to shelter in place.

  •  Stay home if you are not feeling well, feverish, or have had contact with someone who has Covid-19.

  •  Social distancing is a must. Sidewalk, floor, and pews will be marked to maintain the 6' distance. Family members and cohabitating individuals can sit together.   

  •  A mask must be worn in church. A comfortable hand-sewn mask,  in a variety of patterns,  can be purchased for $3.00 at the office.  Proceeds benefit the Bridge of Care. (Call by the 16th if you need to purchase one)

  • The only entry will be through the east glass entryway.

  • The basement door will be locked and that area will be off-limits.

  • All rooms except the sanctuary will be closed.

  • Your temperature will be taken at the door.

  • When you arrive an usher will direct you to a seat, and once service ends, rows will be emptied sequentially while maintaining 6' with everyone going immediately to their vehicles. Should people want to talk with each other, it should be done outside with social distancing observed. 

  • Songbooks, Bibles, pencils, and envelopes will not be available.

  • The offering plate will be located by the sound booth. 

  • There will be a driveby food pickup. Please register by calling the office as soon as possible.

  • To the best of our ability, the church will be sanitized after the service.

We are striving to maintain a safe environment during this pandemic.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the office.

After the Stay at Home Order is lifted, we will be starting a new group, "A Time for Self-Reflection". Are you a morning person? Come to First Baptist for 15 minutes of meditation, prayer & spiritual music. The atmosphere is so serene, peaceful but yet powerful at times you feel as if God is sitting beside you in the pew. This takes a few minutes out of your day but what a way to start it off. Come as you are. You do not have to talk to anyone, after all, it is a time of self-reflection. It is a time for peace and conversation with God. To register call 317-392-2729.
