Current Status During Covid-19 Pandemic

 

Revised Covid-19 Guidelines for CFBC February 2021

  • Starting February 1, 2021 all CFBC events and gatherings will begin again.  This includes Sunday School, Wednesday night studies for all ages, and men’s and women’s bible studies. We will begin offering snacks during fellowship time following the morning service.
  • We will continue to live-stream the worship service on our church Facebook account.  Audio recordings of the sermon are also available on the media page on the church website.
  • If you have any symptoms, even if you think it is a common cold, please stay home for at least 72 hours until symptoms subside and join us through livestream. If you are vulnerable or at risk, we ask that you stay home and join us through the livestream.
  • Although there is no longer a mask mandate in place, we continue to encourage you to wear your mask when you are not able to social distance.
  • To the best of our ability, we will continue to promote (though not enforce) the most recent health directives recommended by the Federal, State and local health authorities.
  • Hand sanitizer is located just outside the sanctuary and throughout the facility.
  • The nursery will be staffed beginning Sunday, February 3.
  • We will continue in not passing collection plates.  Instead, we have installed collection boxes to receive tithes and offerings.  You may also drop off your offerings at the church during posted office hours, or you can utilize the online giving option on the church website.
  • We will continue in not passing literature, such as a bulletin.  We also ask that you refrain from using the hymnals or the pew Bibles.  We highly encourage you to bring your own Bible!

 

We will continue to provide links and suggestions to aid you and your family in worshipping at home. 

We want to remind all our members and friends, and anyone reading this page, that the tension caused by the Coronavirus, Covid-19, gives the people of God the opportunity to stand against fear and to pray in faith for those impacted by this outbreak.  As Paul writes in Philippians 4:6-7,  do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  As God's children, let us throw off fear and anxiety and turn to Him in prayer and stand as a light to the world around us.

Let's continue to pray for the following:

  • Pray in thankfulness for God’s sovereignty.  This pandemic has not caught Him off guard. 
  • Pray that we will seek Him and trust Him as we journey through this challenging season.
  • Pray for those who are sick and for those who love and care for them. 
  • Pray for their comfort and pray for their healing.
  • Pray for those whose livelihoods are at stake and businesses struggling with re-opening.
  • Pray for our healthcare workers who were already operating with little margin prior to the coronavirus. 
  • Pray for their physical, spiritual, and emotional protection as they stand at the frontline of the crisis risking their lives to save ours.
  • Pray for the protection of those who are at a heightened risk such as the elderly, the very young, and those with compromised immune systems.
  • Pray for wisdom for those who lead us in local, state, and federal government, for those who are working to find a vaccine for Covid-19, for the CDC and other medical researchers working to stem the spread of the virus.
  • Pray for your spiritual leaders, that difficult decisions that will need to be made will be done out of care for the body of Christ and not out of fear.
  • Pray for each other and pray for your neighbors. Pray that God will use this as an opportunity for the good news of Jesus Christ to be received in the hearts of many.
  • Finally, pray that our faith might be increased as we depend upon the Lord.

 

During the weeks of this pandemic, we will be live-streaming Sunday mornings via YouTube Live at 10:15am.  Please find us on YouTube by searching for "Columbus FBC".  The sermon audio from each service is also posted on this website under the "media" tab.
