Our Church's Response to COVID-19
Out of extreme caution, we have decided to conduct all worship services at FBC Palmetto online. While we don’t want to pander to the fear that consumes our nation, we do want to be responsible. Those most impacted by the virus are of retirement age and this demographic makes up a large portion of our attenders. Given the size and scope of our church, we would be filled with remorse if someone contracted the virus while attending one of our services.
We also want to respect the wishes of our governing officials as President Trump and Governor DeSantis recently requested meetings with over ten in attendance be canceled. Our hope is that these and other measures will help curb the spread of the virus and protect those most susceptible.
This doesn’t mean we have to give into fear. Instead of being controlled by panic and anxiety, let’s be continually reminded of the character of God. Psalm 46:1-3 says “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling.”
Therefore, please join us for worship Sunday as we spend a few minutes turning our hearts toward the God who is all powerful and almighty. Join us on the FBC Palmetto app, or this FBC Palmetto website at this link for this Sunday's Service at 9:15 or 10:45 am.
