RE: GBC Worship Schedule
Let me commend you on your faithfulness to the Lord through this difficult season. Thank you for your support as we seek to honor the Lord and take our responsibility as a neighbor seriously through these unprecedented days.
After much prayer and thoughtful consideration, our leadership has reached the unanimous decision to resume public worship gatherings beginning Sunday, January 10th.
We are so excited to welcome you back and will initially offer:
• Two services each Sunday morning at 9:00 and 11:00am
• Wednesday PM Bible Study at 7:00pm (beginning January 13)
Please keep the following information in mind:
1-Your safety is important to us.
We have done everything possible to ensure a safe and comfortable worship environment for your family. We are making every effort to ensure that Gethsemane Baptist Church is the safest place you will visit outside your home.
Surfaces will be sanitized between services and hand sanitizer will be available throughout our facility.
2-Please maintain social distancing.
Feel free to greet one another with friendly waves but keep recommended distance between family groups. Please be considerate of the social distancing preferences of others.
3-Face coverings are currently mandated for EVERYONE during your visit to our facilities.
We will have a limited number of masks available upon request. Please consider bringing your mask from home and wearing it during your visit.
4-Your children are always welcome!
We look forward to our nursery and children’s church ministries resuming soon.
5-Stay home if you are not ready.
All our services will continue to be live-streamed on our Facebook Page and YouTube channel. We strongly encourage those who are at-risk or have underlying medical conditions to consider joining us online!
6-Our schedule will continue to expand as conditions begin to improve in Tazewell County.
We look forward to our Youth/Children’s ministries, Welcome Station, Sunday School classes and Sunday PM schedule resuming soon.
