To Our FBC Community

Dear Church Family.

We know God always has his protective arms around us. However, we are in a crisis of dealing with a virus that is spreading around the world. It is the COVID-19 (Coronavirus). This virus is now present in California. Our Mayor has declared a state of emergency. It is necessary for precaution to be taken by everyone until some control and a vaccine is found to treat it.

Over the next month, leaders of FBC along with Pastor, are making changes in our Worship service and doing business at church. We will suspense ‘Passing of the Peace” with shaking hands along with alter prayer holding hands. Hand sanitizer will be at each entrance to Sanctuary. Sanitizer will be available in the office are as well. We also ask that you take personal precautions daily and when you go out in public. We care for your health and well-being. Please wash your hands with soap and water consistently.

We should be in constant prayer for a cure and control over this deadly virus. During this time, call your church family members frequently to fellowship and pray. We find comfort in the words of David, who wrote:

Psalm 23: 1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me… (NIV) 

Rev. Dr Scott Arnold, Ann Brodie David McFadden Gerald Gubatan Amy Shellmire
