Welcome to the Website of Faith Baptist Church

Thanks for visiting our website! I hope all is well with you and yours as you seek the Lord. I think of John's greeting during this season of COVID-19 uncertainty. "Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul" (3 John 2). 

On Monday, April 27th, Governor Reynolds gave the go-ahead for churches in select counties to start gathering in person provided that social distancing measures are in place. With this in mind, we have put several measures in place and we will be open this Sunday for those who would like to gather in person. Here are some measures in place:

  • Those who are ill or immunocompromised should stay home and avoid the risk of making someone sick or getting themselves sick.
  • Those who are 65 and older are in a higher risk group and should give consideration to staying home.
  • We have spread our chairs between the sanctuary and fellowship are so as to provide "social distanced" seating. Family units are encouraged to sit together in a row in such a way to leave as much space for other families to sit.
  • We will not pass the offering plate. An offering can be mailed to the church, placed in the Treasurer's mailbox, or placed in the designated offering container on the table in the foyer.
  • Music will be on the screen so there will be no need to handle hymnbooks.
  • When families arrive at the building they are encouraged to enter and quickly find a place to sit so as to keep the entryway from becoming crowded. When the service is dismissed families are encouraged to make their way from the building without creating clusters of people.
  • We will forego any formal handshaking time during or after the service. We encourage people to avoid hand shaking or hugging before or after the service.

These are a few of the pertinent measures in place. We care about your health as well as your soul. We will continue to live stream our service via Facebook as an option for those who choose to worship from home. Please pray and make the best decision for you and your family.

You will need a Facebook account to view our live stream. Visit our website again or go directly to our Faith Baptist Church Facebook page at 9:30 am and you will be able to click and watch the live stream.

May the Lord bless you and keep you and cause his face to shine upon you!

Upcoming Sermon:
