Dear FBC family,
Thank you church family for your generous support of the Necessary/Battle /Steel Magnolias Relay For Life team. We are humbled to know that so many of you understand the importance of being vigilant in our fight against cancer. Please join us on October 8th for our celebration.
Current Covid Protocols
Our Current Covid Policy (Updated 09/17/2021)
Anyone who desires to worship in person at First Baptist Church, and feels safe and comfortable doing so, is welcome to attend on Sunday mornings as long he/she is willing to maintain the following Covid protocols:
* Wear a facemask covering the nose and mouth for the entirety of time spent inside the building.
* Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from all people not in your immediate family.
* Remain at home if you have a runny nose, headache, cough, fever, or congestion.
Our sanctuary is large enough for all who want to worship in person to gather safely as long as we honor these protocols and refrain from congregational and choral singing. Please come if you are so led.
Having said that, we also realize that the infection rate is twice what it was during the peak last year. We also know that the Delta Variant is 2 to 3 times more contagious than the first strain of Covid-19 and that it has, in rare cases, infected people who were vaccinated. This is the reason that we are not gathering in person for Sunday School or in person on Wednesday nights. Since we have the capability of worshiping virtually, if you feel more comfortable doing so, please join us online. We respect and honor that choice just as we respect and honor the choice of worshiping in person.
Of the 150+ Wilkes County residents who have perished as a result of contracting Covid-19, not one has been a member of First Baptist Church. It is our strong to desire to keep it that way. Thank you for your patience, your faithfulness, and your perseverance through this strange and challenging days. God is with us, and we will make it through to the other side.
The following events and activities remain postponed for the time being, and we will reevaluate as necessary:
