Worship Service for Sunday, July 5, 2020





Worship Playlist








Childcare
We offer childcare for 0-3 years during the 11:00 worship service. Please email Holly Lucas at holly@fbcnb.org to request childcare so that we can schedule sufficient volunteers. If you prefer to have your family all together in the Sanctuary, our nursing/cry room is available if you need to feed, rock, or soothe your baby (newborn-eighteen months) while watching a live feed of the service. If your children need a little more wiggle room, we also stream the service to a screen in the Sanctuary foyer. We will have children's activity bags for each service, but feel free to bring something extra for them to do.

Facilities
  • The building has been deep cleaned and sanitized by DIS.IN.FX.
  • Between services, the pews, bathrooms, lobby area, and door handles will be sanitized. 

Honoring Others
We know it's exciting to see one another and want to hug and shake hands. However, during this time, we encourage you to honor 6’ of social distancing.
  • Please try not to make physical contact with anyone except your immediate family members of your household.
  • We ask families to sit on every other pew as marked, with six feet between families.
  • We ask that you wear a mask to and from your seat. Also, our greeters will be wearing masks for your safety.
  • We strongly encourage the at-risk population to continue to attend online/remotely.
  • If you are symptomatic, or if you have been exposed to COVID-19 in the last two weeks, please attend online.
  • Once you are allowed to enter the building, we ask that you not congregate in the foyer or Sanctuary aisles. Please go straight to the Sanctuary, and find a seat. After you are seated, feel free to wave and talk from your seat to those who are around you. We encourage you to take a moment to pray for God to prepare your heart for worship and for God to bless the service with the power of the Holy Spirit.

Small Groups
We will not have Sunday morning small groups on campus while social distancing is in place. Most of our small groups do not have space in their rooms to spread six feet apart. Small groups may need to adjust their virtual meeting times to allow people to attend one of the on-campus worship services.   


Responding to the Spirit
Due to social distancing, we will not be able to have people come forward for response time. However, if someone needs to talk after the service, we will do so with social distancing in another room. 


Dismissing
  • When the service is over, Pastor Brad will be dismissing you by sections to prevent large groups in the aisles. If you need to speak with a pastor after the service, you may remain in your pew until everyone is dismissed, and someone will come over to speak with you.
  • As you enter and exit the Sanctuary, you will be able to drop any offering into the grey boxes at the rear of the Sanctuary.
  • At the end of the services, the cleaning team will need to begin sanitizing the building. Thank you in advance for exiting the building as soon as possible.

At the moment, there are no plans for any on-campus, weekly Wednesday night activities for June.



Sermon Video/Audio

Sermon Online
We will continue to share a sermon video with announcements to this webpage at 10:45 each Sunday, as well as to our Facebook Page and YouTube Channel.

No computer or smart phone?
If you do have a computer and/or smart phone but don't know how to access the sermons or other resources, please contact your small group leader or the church office for some help walking you through a few simple steps. We plan to provide a limited number of DVDs for those who don't have a computer or smart phone. Let your small group leader know you would like a DVD, and they can provide the office with a list of requests. We will notify leaders when they are available, and leaders can pick them up and help deliver them to homes.


 

Small Groups

Pastor Jared has already informed small group leaders of this adjustment, and each leader will determine the best option for his or her group. Please contact your leader to find out how your group will meet. Not yet connected with a Small Group? Contact Pastor Jared at jared@fbcnb.org or 830-625-9124 for recommendations.
