First Baptist re-opened for services in June, holding its first service on Sunday, June 7th, and our first communion service this past Sunday, July 5th. Everyone who has been attending the services has been receptive to and has been cooperating with the many changes we have had to make in order to meet the state CDC COVID guidelines, and we greatly appreciate it! We definitely are keeping the safety of everyone first and foremost as we continue to hold our services and move forward.
With this in mind, we felt we should let you be aware that we have received notice from Imago Dei (the church we share space with) that they will having services at FBC beginning this Sunday, July 12th. In order to help keep things as safe as possible for both churches, they will be holding their service from 8:30-9:30am and most likely have all people out of the church by or before 10am. Additionally, their service will be much smaller because they are continuing to run 4 other satellite locations in surrounding towns, so they expect that only 25-30 people will be at the service being held at FBC, and they will be sanitizing the church after using the space following their service. They will not be holding any coffee fellowship, or fellowship of any kind, following their service. Imago Dei is, as we are, concerned that the strict COVID guidelines are followed and will be doing their best to keep everyone safe for both churches.
We felt it important to let you all be aware of this as we know this may affect some of you and your individual circumstances and decisions of continuing to attend FBC's Sunday services at the church. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns you may have by contacting Pam Frye at (207) 942-0435, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and blessings to you all,
