A note from Pastor Jason Purdy

*UPDATE 5/16/2020*

First Baptist Church Livingston plans to reopen for Sunday morning service beginning Sunday, May 17 while following the governor's guidelines for Phase 1.

The church foyer, bathrooms, sanctuary, and overflow rooms will be cleaned prior to the service.

We will open the front doors ten minutes before service begins in order for you to be escorted to your seat by a Risk Management team member.

Please practice social distancing in the parking lot and the building.

We will not pass out bulletins or pass the offering plate. The offering plates will be available on a table as you are dismissed from the service.

For the health and safety of others, please plan to wear a mask while in the building. We will have some available for those who do not have one to bring.

The Risk Management team members will assist everyone in maintaining social distancing and providing instruction and direction for our church family as we begin our return.

We will also continue to offer the service online for all those who need to continue to worship from home for the time being. We completely support all who choose not to return to service at this time in light of health or other concerns.

6pm Sunday evening service and 6:30pm Wednesday evening service will still be on Facebook Live for the time being.

In order to comply with the 25% capacity guideline, we will fill the sanctuary to 75 people. We have the fellowship hall and one Sunday school classroom prepared as overflow rooms with video and audio. Thank you to those who have offered in advance to serve others by sitting in overflow if we exceed 75.

There will be no children's church, nursery, or Sunday school at this time.

We look forward to seeing some of you on Sunday. We are praying for everyone as we will all experience a mix of emotions from excitement in returning, missing those who cannot attend yet, and having to do a lot of things to have service that we have never done before. May we all prepare our hearts to celebrate Christ.
