First Baptist Church Durant

We exist to glorify God as we make disciples of all nations.

We want to provide you with updates as we continue to closely monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as it impacts our local communities. (Latest Update: December 1, 2:00 p.m. CST)

Dear Church Family,

COVID-19 Update (tentatively December 1 and beyond)

Dear First Baptist Church Family. December 6th and beyond we will resume in-person worship gatherings at FBC. We will not yet have LIFE groups or any other weekly activities, but we WILL meet for worship at both 9 and 11:15 a.m. We want to do this as safely and as cautiously as possible. So we want to encourage you to do several things:
  • First of all, WAIT if necessary.
    • If you’re sick in any way or just not feeling well, please stay home. Showing this sort of restraint and caution is also showing love for your neighbor.
    • And if you have any reservations about being in a room with several people, please utilize the online viewing option.
      • We will be live streaming our services here and on Facebook at both 9 and 11:15 a.m.
  • Secondly, WASH your hands.
    • And be mindful of others by avoiding personal contact when possible.
  • Third, WEAR a mask if at all possible.
    • I believe this is another practical way we can show love to our neighbors.
    • Wearing a mask will not thoroughly protect you from the virus, but it will make everyone present more comfortable.
  • Finally, WATCH your distance.
    • We’ve just got to be wise in how we interact together for worship.

While LIFE groups and other weekly activities will not meet until mid-January, we will have nursery and children’s church available for our Sunday gatherings.
These are truly trying times, but God is ever faithful. God bless you as you continue on your journey in worship. Please let me know if there is a way we can be of encouragement to you during this time!
Please contact me at if you have any questions or feedback about the plans moving forward.
In Christ,
