COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Church Update
UPDATED: Wednesday, March 18
First Baptist Church Family,
We have canceled all church activities until further notice.We would like to invite you to watch our Sunday morning 9AM service online at:
We have suspended visits to hospitals and to short-term and long-term care facilities. We will continue to provide care and love to those in need of pastoral care through phone-calls, FaceTime, and text messaging.
How we as believers respond in times of crisis is a direct reflection of the faith we have in our great God! We can show our love in times like this by offering to pray for others and being an encouragement to them.
It is important for us not to become captivated by fear as we’re reminded in 2 Timothy 1:7 –  “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
You are loved,
First Baptist Church
Long Beach, MS
