Dear Church Family,
Please note that we will NOT have “in house” worship or small groups for the month of January (January 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th or 31st).
Please make note of the following items:
A) The church campus will essentially be closed except for staff for the month of January as it was back in April-July.
B) This is what I have shared with the staff and deacon body:
“I have spoken with our chairman of deacons (Claude Rigsby) and I have also been in touch with our church staff regarding our plans for the month of January.
Due to the fact that Covid-19 numbers have been peaking at their highest numbers in Alabama in recent days (regularly between 4,000 and 5,000 cases per day), we are going to return to virtual worship services for the month of January.
That means that we will have no “in house” worship services or small groups for the month of January. While we obviously dislike doing this, it seems like both the wisest and safest thing to do. January could be extremely difficult for Alabama and especially for our hospitals if the effects of family gatherings continue to impact Covid-19 numbers in our state like Thanksgiving gatherings seem to have done. We will make a decision about our February plans during the last week of January.”
C) The good news is that the Covid vaccine is being “rolled out” even as I type this note. Hopefully and prayerfully, things could be significantly different in a few more months as the effects of the vaccine began to be seen.
D) Regarding Wee-Care: Wee Care follows the schedule and plans our Madison County school system and they will continue to do that. If Kim Hutto, our Wee-Care director, changes anything about Wee-Care, I will let you know.
E) Regarding January Youth D-Now: Bro. Joe will issue an update tomorrow, but it will most likely be moved to a later date.
Thank you for your continued godly, spiritually mature, flexibility during these days. Thank you also for praying for your staff and deacons as we negotiate the challenges of these days as well.
I love you FBC! Better days are ahead! Love in Christ, Bro. Tommy (and staff and deacons)
