Welcome Back Announcement and Details

WE GATHER TOGETHER

SUNDAYS // MAY 31 – JUNE 28 IN-PERSON SERVICES

WORSHIP 8:30 AM // 10:30 AM

WE ENCOURAGE THOSE AGE 55+ TO ATTEND THE EARLIER SERVICE

  • You may enter through the front doors, the east entrance under the portico, or the door next to the library. Doors will be unlocked and open 15 minutes prior to service.
  • Both services will be the same in song and message. Tithes/offerings can be given by dropping them in the designated baskets instead of passing the plate. Bulletins will not be handed out in the traditional manner either.
  • Certain pews will be marked for use in each service. The balcony will be closed needed for overflow seating. We ask families to sit together and to adhere to social distancing guidelines with those outside their family.
  • There will be no childcare. Please bring your children to the service with you!
  • Please refrain from hugging and shaking hands. Also, we ask that you not congregate in the foyer or worship center after the service. This allows our cleaning team to disinfect between services.
  • You are welcome to wear a mask and/or gloves if you choose to do so.
  • Online services will continue each Sunday morning. We will not have Sunday School in the traditional manner. Classes can reserve portions of the facility for their Bible Study to meet at alternate times

If you are sick, have COVID-19 symptoms, or have recently been exposed to someone with COVID-19, please forego our in person gatherings and worship with us through social media or the church website.

Welcome to First Baptist Batesville

What We Believe

Our church is a community of believers with Jesus Christ as its head. We seek to love, respect and care for one another as a demonstration of our love for God. Our outreach is to those who have no church home. Many in our area are disillusioned with religion. They have felt the sting of legalism with its impossible demands. Some have seen hypocrisy. Others have had no religious background and therefore see Christianity as irrelevant. The missing element has been healthy relationships with mature believers in Jesus.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

1 Peter 2:9-10
