Changes to Worship and FBC’s Mask Policy

  • Masks are required for everyone, ages two and older (including those fully vaccinated) while in the building. This includes moving throughout the building, in the Sanctuary, and in Sunday School classes.
  • Until further notice, we will not have congregational singing in worship.
  • Ministers and lay worship leaders may remove their masks while speaking from the pulpit and put their masks back on before being seated.
  • Children will remain with their families for the Children’s Sermon in worship.
  • Sunday School classes can continue to meet as they feel appropriate, but if in person, masks will be required.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please keep your church, its leaders, our city, and our nation in your prayers.
