An update on what’s happening at FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH in light of the developing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.
As you probably know, the Center for Disease Control has recommended against gatherings larger than 10 people.
In light of this, the pastoral staff at First Baptist has prayerfully decided to transition our services to an online only format.
If you haven't already, please take this opportunity to watch Pastor Brian's message to the church featured on our homepage.

How can I help?
As always, and especially now you can help by being the church. Be salt and light to your friends, neighbors, and coworkers. Matthew 5: 13 -16
During this time, we are asking you to help stop the spread of the virus in the following ways:
Stay at home when you or a family member are sick.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
Cover your sneeze or cough with a tissue or your arm.
Get in the habit of NOT touching your face so often.
Forgo shaking hands for a wave or a friendly smile.
If you or someone you know tests positive for COVID-19, please let us know so we can find a way to help, pray for everyone involved and take any necessary precautions here at First Baptist.
While we cannot control the virus, the spread, or the impact it has in our church, we’re doing everything we can to make this campus as safe and clean as possible. We appreciate your cooperation and commitment to help us do just that. We must also remember that God has not called us to live in fear but in faith. As the apostle, Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 1:7, “For the Spirit of God does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline.” Our prayer is that God will fill all of us with these three gifts, no matter what comes our way.
