Safety is Our Priority!

At 1st Baptist here is what we have done and are doing to keep you safe. Safety is our priority:
* We want our sanctuary to be as touch less as possible.
* Our sanctuary will be sanitized before you arrive.
* The offering boxes are in 2 places for those who choose to give.
* Communion will continue to be in the pre-packaged, sanitary peel off cups.
* We have automated hand-sanitizers at each entrance.
* Face masks are optional, you may wear one if you want.
* We have installed “Halo” units in all 10 of our HVAC units to help provide the best air quality possible.
* At this time, the coffee shop will not be serving refreshments.
How can you help us when joining us now for worship?
* If you don’t feel well or have health concerns, please stay home and watch on Facebook or YouTube live.
* Please wash and sanitize your hands often.
* Respect those around you as being “cautious” when you arrive.
* Enjoy your experience at 1st Baptist to its fullest.
* We now have the nursery opened back up and started Children’s Church again.
