What does the church look like during a pandemic?

It seems that everything has changed in our world during the Coronavirus pandemic. That means we have to change the way we think about church.
Due to recommended social distancing and the need to suspend all regular church gatherings, we have identified the following three priorities as we adjust to our current reality…
 
Beginning on Sunday, March 22, 2020, our weekly worship service will be provided by streaming video. You can access the service through our FBC Facebook page or our church website (www.fbcwashingtonga.org). The service will include a time of worship along with a message from our Pastor as he continues the sermon series in Ephesians. The service will be available for viewing at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday morning until further notice.

Beginning on Sunday, March 22, 2020 we will introduce FBC@Home. This is a special home-based discipleship focus that will provide resources for you and your family to experience spiritual growth and to come to understand the importance of not just “going to church” – but what it actually means to “be the church.”
This is a 40-Day emphasis that will include a family devotional study on the book of Joshua along with special family activities including meal preparation ideas as well as creative ways to reach out to others as we love our neighbors.
You can drop by the church and go to the covered pull-through near the fellowship hall to pick up your FBC@Home Starter Packet! More items will be provided throughout the 40 days… so keep an eye on our FBC Facebook page and get ready for the FBC@Home journey!
 
“Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.” Hebrews 10:24 NLT

LOVE DOES… is a reminder that we can show our love for God in some very unique ways as we experience these many interruptions in our lives.
Obviously, God does not want us to do “business as usual” and the church has an opportunity to see the world through a new lens of love and ministry.
We will provide some ministry ideas to address needs within our community like the one below for Senior Adult Blessing Bags. We also will encourage families to identify their own creative ideas of what LOVE DOES… We encourage you to share these ideas on the FBC Facebook page as we think of ways to encourage one another “to acts of love and good works.”
Remember what we have already learned in Ephesians 2:10… “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”
