After much prayer and consideration on reopening Buffalo Baptist Church, as safely as possible, and establishing guidelines, the Board of Deacons voted to open Buffalo Baptist Church for worship.
There will be one service every Sunday at 10:00 am and Sunday School for adults at 9am. There will be no nursery or children’s church until further notice.
Babies & Children Are Welcome!
The Board of Deacons realizes that people at higher risk of contracting the coronavirus (people over 60 and those with existing medical conditions) may not feel safe to return at this time. You are not obligated to attend. Everyone will understand that you are doing what you sense at peace to do for you and your family. There will be Wednesday Prayer Time “Night for the Desperate” from 7-7:30 pm.
Following are the guidelines recommended by the Board of Deacons:
- It is requested that everyone enter through the East Entrance or Basement Entrance as we are currently in the Fellowship Hall due to our sanctuary renovation. The Basement Entrance in the back does have a ramp if needed.
- Masks and hand sanitizer will be placed at the entrance for anyone desiring to use them. Wearing a mask will not be mandatory; however, we encourage those to wear them if they so choose. We believe that families should exhibit personal responsibility when deciding how to protect their families. We do not believe it is the church’s responsibility to tell you what to do. The church is here to minister the Gospel to you and support you along your journey with the Lord.
- The offering plate will not be passed around. Offering plates will be at the exit as you leave to give to the Lord.
I want you to know that I am excited to see you again; however, I understand if you decide to stay home for an extended period. This virus is real, and it is taking lives; if you are at risk, please do what you sense is right. I encourage you to seek the Lord and one another as you walk through this. No one has ‘the’ answer, but what we do have is the Lord as He directs our steps.
May God’s face be upon you and bless you!
