First Baptist Church of Taylor (FBC) announced that it will be reopening its doors this weekend.

Beginning Saturday, May 23, FBC will offer four in-person gatherings. Additionally, FBC will continue to post a virtual service.

Services will be Saturday at 5 p.m. for those with children in grades 5 or lower. A second service will be on Saturday at 7 p.m. for those with children in grades 6-12.

On Sunday, there will be a service at 9 a.m. for adult seniors and anyone at greater risk for COVID-19. The second Sunday service will be at 11 a.m. for anyone unable to attend the other services.

In keeping with social distancing guidelines, attendance will be limited to approximately 100 people. There will continue to be no childcare or Bible studies on campus due to social distancing constraints. FBC will continue to post a virtual service on Facebook and email.

“This plan is our best solution to holding three ideals in tension – gathering for worship is a vital component of spiritual nourishment and growth, promoting community safety is a necessary element of loving our neighbors, and honoring our elected officials is an essential piece of obeying God’s commands,” said Pastor Brady Collier.
