COVID-19 Update – September 3, 2020

Brothers and Sisters,

I’m excited to tell you that FBC Enterprise is starting a 3rd service September 13, 2020!

It has been refreshing to see so many of you returning to church as you are able. Navigating the recent months has been challenging, but I believe we have found a system that has allowed our church to worship together in a safe and sustainable way.

Our 8:15 a.m. worship service has reached capacity twice now. We never want to turn anyone away from worshiping the Lord and we must maintain our current distancing protocols. Therefore, we will be adding a third worship service on Sunday mornings. I want to thank you in advance for your flexibility and patience as our church family seeks to allow every opportunity for our Lord to be worshiped.

Obviously, adding a third service will affect our schedule, so we wanted to share some of those changes with you.

When will worship services in the sanctuary be held?

  • 8:15 a.m. (Contemporary Worship)
  • 9:30 a.m. (Contemporary Worship)
  • 10:45 a.m. (Traditional Worship)

Who are we asking to attend the 9:30 a.m. service?

  • Those who attend the 8:15 a.m. service, but do NOT go to Sunday School.
  • Those classes we have specifically asked to adjust their meeting times.

Will my Adult Sunday School class meeting time change?

  • Most of our class meeting times will NOT change.
  • There are only some classes that we have asked to adjust their meeting times.
  • You will hear from your Sunday School teachers regarding your class meeting times. 

If my Adult Sunday School class meeting time is adjusted, where does my child go?

  • Children 4 years of age and younger will attend their normal preschool class (1st floor).
  • Children in Kindergarten through 5th grade will meet in the HUB (2nd floor).

Where do I pick my children up?

  • Preschoolers will be picked up on the first floor.
  • Children in Kindergarten through 5th grade will meet in their normal classrooms.

Can I send my older children to pick up my younger children?

  • No. There are too many moving parts right now. Children will only be released to a parent or guardian.

First Baptist, you are amazing. You have been extremely patient and flexible as we have had to make many adjustments in order to gather for worship. This probably won’t be the last change, but you are reflecting the character of Christ as you seek to “love one another with brotherly affection [and] outdo one another in showing honor” (Rom 12:10). It is a joy to be your pastor. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our staff. Thank you again.

Pastor Ben Bowden
