May 2020 Update

From the Desk of Pastor Stewart

April 30, 2020

Dear Faith Baptist Church Members,

As we enter the month of May and prepare to reopen our building to services in two weeks, I wanted to update you regarding our schedule through these things.

May Schedule:

As of right now, all services will be Online ONLY through the “Stay at Home” order that is set in Johnson County through Sunday, May 10th. This will also include the Wednesday Night Service on May 13th. Our Online Services will continue to be livestreamed through our website. Service times are as follows:

Sunday Morning – 11am

Sunday Evening – 6pm

Wednesday Evening – 7pm

**There is no Sunday School, however there will continue to be Junior Church Check In’s for the children. Please make sure to check those out.   

We will reopen our building and begin having “in person” services on Sunday, May17th. However, with COVID-19 still spreading, these services will be limited as follows:

Sunday Morning – 11am

Sunday Evening – 6:30pm

Wednesday Evening – 7pm

**There will be no Sunday School, no Men’s Prayer, no buses, and no Sunday Evening Bible Study.

**There will be Junior Church during the Sunday morning service. There will also be a combined Kid’s Class and Teen Class during the Wednesday evening service. There will also be nursery available for all services.

  • We will continue to practice social distancing, meaning no handshaking or other forms of contact. Families need to sit together.
  • If you or anyone else in your household are sick, please stay at home. Use good hygiene: wash your hands, use hand sanitizer, etc.
  • We will continue our services online for those who may not feel comfortable coming yet, or are high risk.

These limited services will continue through the month of May, including Wednesday Night’s Service on June 3rd. All current activities in May are canceled/postponed, except for the following:

May 13th (Wednesday): Bro. Jack Parker will be preaching.

May 28th (Thursday): Virtual Baby Shower for Mrs. Lizzy Parker at 7pm.

May 31st (Sunday): We will be hosting a Table Shower for Mrs. Shannen Cross until the end of May. If you would like to get something for Baby Cross, you can leave it on the designated table in the outer foyer.

June Schedule:

            Senior Camp and Junior Camp are canceled due to COVID-19. This year’s High School Seniors will be extended a special invitation to attend camp next year. They will also be allowed to attend YouthCon in August, pending they still have this event at Southwest Baptist Church in Oklahoma City. I do understand that this will upset many of our kids. Hopefully, we can schedule some special activities toward the end of summer to encourage those that have missed out on so much due to the pandemic.

            June’s activities are as follows:

June 7th (Sunday): We will begin full services, reinstating Men’s Prayer, Buses, Sunday School, and Sunday Evening Bible Study.

June 19th (Friday): Faith Baptist School Graduation & Awards Ceremony at 7pm.

June 28th (Sunday): Sunday School Promotion. Adult Linger Longer following the evening services.

            On another note, we are planning to send out packets at the beginning of May that will include an updated bulletin, an updated prayer list, and the Call to Glory devotional books. As we enter the month of July, Lord willing, we can get back to normal.  

In Christ,
