Welcome Home

Church Family,

We are thankful for your grace and support during this tumultuous time. Our staff has been diligently praying for wisdom on the next steps for us to take as a church. We remain hopeful for the day when all of this is behind us, but until then we are grateful for your patience and understanding as we navigate this road together.

On Monday, mandatory mask orders for local businesses went into effect in both Bryan and College Station. As we seek to be good members of our community, First Baptist Bryan is choosing to comply with these ordinances. Effective immediately, we will be requiring masks to be worn in our building and during our worship services.

Starting this Sunday, all of our staff, greeters and volunteers will be wearing masks, and we ask that you do as well. Masks will continue to be provided and will be available at each of our entrances should you need one. We ask that you please place your mask over your nose and mouth as soon as you enter the building.

During our services, participants who appear on stage will remove their mask for the duration of their part and will place it back on as soon as they step off stage. There will be no choir or orchestra in our traditional service for the time being. If you choose not to attend in person,
we encourage you to continue joining us online.

Additionally, as we continue to survey the landscape of this COVID-19 world and in light of recent events, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Phase 2 of our GroupLife Reopening plan. Tentatively, the new date is set for Sunday, August 2, however we will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments as necessary.

Groups currently meeting in Phase 1 are welcome to continue to do so, but masks will be required in the room. We also want to reiterate that no one should feel compelled to meet if they do not feel it is safe to do so. The health and safety of our congregation remains a top
priority.

As we journey on this road together, please be in prayer for our staff for discernment and wisdom from the Lord as we wrestle with these difficult decisions in uncertain times. Our hope is that we do not simply survive this time, but emerge on the other side as a better, stronger
and more unified church.
