COVID-19 / Coronavirus Update

Church family,

The church council, staff, and I have continued to assess our re-opening plans, and we are confident that we can continue meeting in person safely in the coming weeks. Over the past few weeks, all those attending have taken special care in creating a safe worship space for everyone. I’d like to thank everyone who has attended and volunteered in worship. Your cooperation is a sign of the love you have for your neighbors around you.

Beginning this Sunday (June 14), we are modifying our procedures to reflect the following changes:

  • There will be kids church (1st – 4th grade) and childcare (birth – kindergarten) during 11am worship.
  • We will not be checking everyone’s temperature at the door (though we will still be checking temps for child care).
  • We ask that people wear a mask while moving about and while singing, but at other times, masks may be lowered to help people breathe more easily. We hope this makes worship more comfortable for you.
  • Hand sanitizer and masks will be available, and physical distancing will be encouraged.
  • For now, we have not set a date for LifeGroups to begin meeting on campus, but we continue to reassess how we might do that safely.

Our schedule will remain the same (8:30am Exalt Worship; 11am Revive Worship), and we hope you can join us. We realize that some people may still choose to worship from home, and this is understandable. We will continue to live stream both services as we have been doing. Nevertheless, we are confident that our worship experience is abundantly safe for those who wish to attend in person.

My heart is filled with gratitude for all your prayers, encouragement, and support. God continues to lead and provide for us in ways that are beyond all expectation. I am praying for the gospel to advance and for the Lord to send revival in our community. And I’m praying for each of you: “just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness” (Colossians 2:6-7 NIV).

God bless you!

Pastor Collin

The Wee Learn Center

As an outreach of First Baptist Church of Longview, Texas, the Wee Learn Center was developed to help children grow spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, socially and physically. Because the most influential years of a young child are from birth to 6 years, the Wee Learn Center holds ministering to children as a top priority. What they learn during their first years will shape their attitudes about themselves and everyone around them. Although our school is open to any child regardless of race or religious beliefs, we believe faith and education go hand in hand to glorify God.

Special Friends

Special Friends Ministry is focused on meeting the spiritual needs of adults living in group homes in Longview and the surrounding area. Each Sunday at 10:00 a.m. men from the House of Disciples lead praise and worship, followed by a Bible study, then prayer. Refreshments are served after each service. Lunch is served once monthly at the end of the service. On a different Sunday each month, we acknowledge and celebrate birthdays with cake. We strive to provide a place for Special Friends to learn about God’s Word and grow spiritually, as we believe there are no disabled souls.
