Phase Two Specifics For You

Below are answers to our modified Phase Two of reopening FBC. For those who want a comprehensive look, please read our official plan here.
What did the Covid Advisory Team Recommend?
  • Continue to encourage those with potential Covid symptoms to stay home and contact their healthcare provider.
  • Open all seating. We will retain the physical distancing signage in our Pathways area in the sanctuary, due to the increased risks associated with special needs. Opening all seating will make it easier for those who wish to distance to do so, as more seating options will be available.
  • Move to a “mask optional” policy throughout the building. Those with immunodeficiencies or concerns about respiratory viruses are welcome to wear a mask while in the building. You do what is best for your health and we will support you.
  • The decision for children under 12 to wear a mask is left to their parents. We believe parents are the first pastors their children have, so we do not intend to override your authority on this matter. Note: the “mask optional” policy also applies to FIRSTkids volunteers.

If you are not comfortable with these changes, we are continuing our livestream.

What about masks?

We have changed to a “mask optional” policy throughout the building.

Those with immunodeficiencies or concerns about respiratory viruses are welcome to wear a mask while in the building. You do what is best for your health and we will support you, whatever your decision is.

What if I think I have symptoms of COVID-19?

If you have, or may have, symptoms of COVID-19, stay home…and contact your doctor! People with these symptoms or combinations of symptoms may have COVID-19:

  • fever greater than 100.4
  • runny nose
  • sore throat
  • cough
  • sinus infection
  • diarrhea
Will my small groups/Sunday School class meet?

Classrooms for small groups/Sunday school classes are available on campus during Phase Two, but not all classes have returned.  We’ve got a full listing of in-person Sunday school groups on our groups page

What about children under 12?

The decision for children under 12 to wear a mask is left to their parents. We believe parents are the first pastors their children have, so we do not intend to override your authority on this matter.

Note: the “mask optional” policy also applies to FIRSTkids volunteers.

What about the Choir?

During Phase Two, our choir is not yet back. We will continue to have a worship team leading us from the platform as we sing in person and in our homes.
