A Message from Dr. Harper

May 26, 2020



Dear Church Family,


Thank you for reading this update concerning the planning for re-engaging in worship and our other ministries.


The ministerial staff has been involved in webinars and other online meetings focused on ideas/concerns about churches re-engaging in active ministry. The Diaconate met recently to discuss a date when our congregation can safely begin gathering for worship. 


Both the deacons and staff agree that adjustments to the past church routines may be necessary due to the guidelines presented by the CDC and other health officials; plus, our own desires to do what is best for our church fellowship.


The Diaconate and the church staff agree Sunday, July 5, 2020 should be set as an anticipated date for our gathering for worship. This decision is made in accordance with the governor's phase 2 announcement and our concern for the safety and health of our church membership and guests. More details of what to expect when we gather for worship will be announced later.


Online worship (on the church website, Facebook, and YouTube) will continue to be provided for those unable to attend person-to-person worship. It will be a delayed, edited video from the previous Sunday's service. We do not presently have the ability or the equipment to provide live streaming.

The Church Office will reopen on Monday, June 1, with social distancing arrangements and personal protection protocols. Committee chairs will be receiving guidelines for resumption of their meetings.

The anticipated beginning dates for other ministries will be determined when Phase 3 of the governor's plan is initiated. 


I am so grateful for the church staff, the Diaconate, and other volunteers for their continued commitment to the Lord through the shared ministries of our congregation. 


The Best is Yet to Be.


Your Pastor


 

I have set the LORD always before me.

Because He is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.

HOW DO I CONTINUE TO TITHE DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS?

GOOD QUESTION!

We understand giving to the church is very important to our FBC family,

and we want to give you  some suggestions on how to continue. Initially,

people stopped by the church office to drop off their tithes and offerings.

Thank you!  


Because the office is currently closed, we ask you to take

advantage of one of these convenient options:  


  • Regular US Mail (614 W. Corbett Avenue, Swansboro, NC  28584)
  • Online (through the blue "GIVE NOW" button below, the Church App, or QR Code). The Church App is a quick way to give online and is available for both Apple and Android devices.  Search "First Baptist Church Swansboro."  It is free!  
  • During the Sunday Online Worship Experience, there will be a link shown during the Offertory segment.  


THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE MINISTRIES AT FIRST BAPTIST.
