Life Goes On

Even during our current pandemic, life goes on. 

God is still sovereign and His love is everlasting.

In June 2020 we re-opened our doors for worship.  While many have returned to "in-person" fellowship and worship, many are still uneasy or unable (due to jobs or underlying health concerns) from returning in person.  Do not fear!  The Word of God  and our love for the Lord, each other and our community never shuts down.  In order to get the Word of God to you, the pastor will be posting videos of his sermons  on this website (see the sermons and studies page) or you can watch every Sunday morning live streams of the worship service.  If you'd like to attend one of our worship services online, please contact the church office and ask for the zoom link.  Also, if you have pressing physical needs, please contact the church through the office phone number listed on this website for prayer or material supplies for your family.

Keep in mind that this...

Does not prohibit this.

Practice social distancing but not total isolation.

Online Giving

While the quarantine is in various states of being, we wanted to give our members and friends another outlet for giving to the church.  If you prefer to send it via the U.S. Mail, contact the church office for specific directions.

You can support the ongoing ministries of Fellowship Baptist Church by contributing financially.  If you want to give online, just click the "Give" link above.  You will be taken to a secure link where you can follow the prompts to give a one time or recurring gift. Thank you for supporting God's work in this area and around the world.

With everything except "life-essential" businesses closed, you may feel more isolated than normal.  "Take Out" is the motto for life during this Coronavirus - get the food but don't linger for fellowship or contact.  It feels unnatural for most to live without some physical contact and verbal dialogue, even if it's in passing.  Remember that you aren't alone in that feeling.  For that matter, you aren't alone at all. Jesus promises to never leave you or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).  You can hear from God in His Word.  Spend some time daily reading Scripture.  If you are new to it, start in the book of John.  Make sure during this time of quarantine that you reach out to your friends and family.  As many Gen Z'ers (those 18 and under) are figuring out, they can talk on their phones, too.  God created us to be social critters, yet we are being told to stay away from one another for a time.  Don't hibernate or become as reclusive as Bigfoot.  Phone your friends so you can hear them speaking to you.  Use the video functions of your phone and computer to actually see the other in a conversation.  Some family friends just challenged my family to a game of Pictionary over Zoom.  If you are part of the church family, call others in your church family and see how they are doing.  What are their struggles?  You will find that you can forge many new bonds of friendship during this crisis if you reach out to others.  As always, if you need further attention or experience deeper concerns, please contact Pastor Barry. 

Hope For the Fearful

Does the pandemic have you fearing for your life?  You're not alone but there is real hope. Please watch this short video for help.

Hope for the Fearful
For you and your children

This is a scary time for adults, so you can imagine the impact this could have on our younger children. Now more then ever it is important to remind them of how much God loves them and how he will protect them during this time of uncertainty.  The link below will take you to a site that will help you minister to your children during this time.  It has videos, songs, and activities you can do at home during the quarantine.  And now that we have resumed meeting, we have our Sunday morning children's ministry up and running again.  Your children will be welcome to attend.

"Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, descendant of David, according to my gospel, for which I suffer hardship even to imprisonment as a criminal; but the word of God is not imprisoned. For this reason I endure all things for the sake of those who are chosen, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Jesus Christ  and with it eternal glory."  II Timothy 2: 8-10
