Dear First Family,

What a happy day! We are so happy to announce that we are OPEN!  We have always been open, but have needed to do many things virtually.  Thankfully, God is and has been answering our prayers.  We praise Him that we will be starting our children’s programs, teens, and all other classes and Bible study on campus again beginning the first week of June!

We are already meeting for worship in the sanctuary.  We begin with a fellowship with refreshments in our Family Center at 10 am.  Then we move to the sanctuary for spaced out worship!  It has been wonderful!  Plenty of room for everyone!  Hand sanitizer available.

I hope you have been able to recognize your many blessings during this time of social distancing.  God is never surprised by these events, and His word encourages us that He “works all things together for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.”

At this moment, we still have some decisions that we need to make concerning church activities based on suggestions, recommendations, and orders from the local, state, and federal governments.

If you are not comfortable with getting out, you can always worship with us online, same time – 10:45 am, same place – on Facebook Live. We will be together in spirit, and still enjoy this special time.  Be sure to tune in.

To notify us of prayer requests, please go to our contact link, and send us messages.

Finally, many of you have had questions regarding how you can continue to give. Like you, during this time of revitalization, missing even 1 week of giving may create a struggle to meet our church needs. You can Give Online OR you may mail your tithes to:  First Baptist Church, 300 Main Street, Auburndale, FL 33823.

We have missed each and everyone of you!  Again, if you have any needs, please do not hesitate to call my cell phone: (863)397-6608. As we seek God for direction, He will answer and be our guide.  Jesus alone is our every hope.  “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.” John 1:4 

Be sure to share God’s message of hope with as many people as you can.  These are wonderful days that we are living in.  Count your blessings, and keep serving Jesus faithfully!  

God bless you,
Pastor Tom
