CHURCH UPDATE

Church family,

We want to update you on what’s happening at FBCLV! Worship is “on campus” and “live stream (online)” at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. every Sunday and nursery care is available. When worshipping on campus, we ask that you wear a face-covering when not seated for the safety of others. Our campus is being treated monthly with Zoono by Alpha Defense Shield and also disinfected in between and after services so that we can provide the cleanest environment for your protection.

Some of our adult life groups are meeting on campus as well as others through Zoom. On Wednesday evenings our students (grades 6th-12th) meet in the sanctuary and our ladies’ bible study meets in the fellowship hall from 6:15-7:30 p.m. It is our prayer that over the next several weeks we will be able to restart ALL of our adult, student, and kids’ ministries both on Sundays and Wednesdays, as well as all other weekday bible studies and gatherings. Please watch for an announcement soon about the dates that these ministries will restart, as well as information on our Wednesday night meals!

Even though many things are still very “different” right now in our world, we are going to do our best to have our fall events as planned and make adjustments as needed to ensure a safe environment. Here are some events that we are excited about: Football Tailgate Ministry (first home game), 165th Homecoming Picnic, Pumpkin Patch, Trunk or Treat Fall Festival, Thanksgiving Celebration, and Christmas Eve Candlelight service!

We will continue to communicate upcoming dates and events in our announcement videos on Sundays, church Facebook page, website, and through church email. As always, your church staff loves you and is here for you and we are so excited that even during these unchartered waters the Lord is our firm foundation and is doing a mighty work at and through FBCLV! #aplacetogrow

Church family,

We want you to know that not only is your church staff praying for you and available to help in any way that we can, the church body is also praying for each other and wants to help! If you are unable to leave your home at this time due to low immunity, kids at home, quarantine,  or any other reason we have church members who are volunteering to go and pick up groceries/supplies for you and deliver them to your home. If this is a need that you have, please email Debbie at   or call our church office 830-253-1239 and let us know.

Please remember that we will have no weekday services this week and our plans for this coming Sunday will be determined later in the week based on the reports and recommendations from our local and state health agencies. Stay informed by checking your email, the church’s Facebook page, or our website at www.fbclv.com.

Though isolation often makes us feel alone, remember that our church is a family and we will walk through this time together! As Pastor Devin reminded us yesterday, as long as the Lord is our pilot, we know that He is the way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper, and the light in the darkness, so we can trust Him even when the flight is a little bumpy! 

Pastor Josh Walters

Church family,

Over the last several weeks the Coronavirus/(COVID-19) has certainly become the center of attention in our world, but as believers in Christ, I pray that He is always our focus. During times like these, the church must never respond with fear but always stand firm in our faith that God is still on His throne!

Your church staff wants you to know that while worshipping together is one of our greatest joys, we also want to be careful and cautious to protect the physical health of our members. Therefore, here is our immediate plan for March 15-March 21. We will have ONE WORSHIP SERVICE tomorrow beginning at 10:15 am. We ask that there be no handshaking but instead give an “elbow bump” or a “Spirit-filled wave” to one another! We will not have welcome time during the service, and there will be ushers standing in a place where you can drop off your offering so that we will not be passing the plates.

There will be NO LIFE GROUPS for any ages but we will have nursery workers available. If you are feeling sick or are susceptible to illness please stay home. We are working on providing a quality live stream service in the weeks to come, but we will have a basic live stream of the service tomorrow on our church’s Facebook page. We will have NO WEEKLY ACTIVITIES from March 16-March 21. All bible studies/KDO/and our Quarterly Business meeting will be suspended to limit the possible spread of this illness. As we receive more information from our local and state health agencies we will update the church on our plans for next week. Please look for updates in your email, on our church Facebook page, or church website at www.fbclv.com.

The church office will be open next week if you need us for anything at all we are here to serve and love you! Pastor Devin will be preaching tomorrow and for those who are not able to watch the service online, he will email out a written copy of the sermon for you to study at home with your family. Once again, if you are feeling ill or are concerned about your physical health PLEASE stay at home and worship there. We may not know what tomorrow holds, but Praise God we know who holds tomorrow! I’ll be there in the morning to greet you with a big smile and some hand sanitizer! Matthew 6:25-34

Pastor Josh
