FBJ’S RESPONSE TO COVID-19
The landscape surrounding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is changing constantly these days. This is your location to find out the official news from First Baptist Jackson as we navigate the impact of this virus here in Mississippi.
Bookmark this page for the latest updates related to COVID-19 as it impacts our FBJ community. (Updated: March 26, 2020, 2:00 p.m.)
Because First Baptist Jackson is a multigenerational church with members and attendees from across central Mississippi, we feel an obligation to you and our community to take every precaution possible. While that doesn’t mean we should take a break from community, it does mean that we can continue to experience times together digitally thanks to technology platforms.
This Sunday, March 29, and for the foreseeable future, First Baptist Jackson will be live streaming only during our 10:30 a.m and 6:00 p.m worship times. You will engage in worship led by our interim worship leader, Michael Gibson, and Senior Pastor Chip Stevens will deliver a message in his series, Disruptions: Lessons Learned From Life’s Interruptions. So, charge up your computers on Saturday night, and invite family and friends to join you online.
For those that are more comfortable with traditional communication methods, please join us for our weekly television broadcast on WDBD FOX40 at 8:00 a.m. or WLOO at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings. You can click here to see where these stations may be located on your local cable or satellite provider. These broadcasts are a week delayed, but still allow the FBJ family to worship together.
All weekly activities including Bible Studies, Mom’s Day Out, Preschool, Kids, Student, and College, and Music Ministry activities are canceled for this coming week and the foreseeable future. If you have any questions, please contact the church office or the ministry area directly.
SUNDAY SCHOOL, LIFE GROUPS, AND SMALL GROUPS
We discourage our church groups from meeting in person; rather we ask that the leaders of these groups utilize technology to remotely connect on a regular basis. Please contact your group leader for more information. For information related to Life Stage ministries (Preschool, Kids, Students, and College) please contact the Family Ministry office.
Out of an abundance of caution, the CLC is closed as well.
We are blessed to have a faithful family here at FBJ that includes some outstanding medical professionals. In conjunction with a medical advisory team and recommendations from the Mississippi Department of Health, we will evaluate our activities week by week to ensure the safety and health of all people who visit our campus each week.
