COVID-19: FBC Reopening Plan
Sunday Morning Worship Services
  • The most recent variance from the state for Gunnison County allows us to have up to 100 people in our church building at one time.   
  • We will offer one Sunday Morning Worship Service at 10:00 AM.  Attendance is not necessarily expected, required, or in any way considered a test of your spirituality.  If you do not feel comfortable entering the church, please feel complete liberty to stay at home. This service will be livestreamed for those that cannot attend. There will also be an audio recording available later in the week on our website.
  • For the time being, there will be no Sunday School classes or a Nursery.
  • To aid in appropriate social distancing, please remain together as a family unit before, during, and after the service.
  • Please do not attend if you are sick, have a fever, or a cough; it is recommended not to attend if you are high risk.
  • Attending the service assumes the consent of you and your family to the following liability waiver: COVID-19 is highly contagious and is known to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. By attending First Baptist Church of Gunnison, you agree to abide by the procedures established by the church to protect attendees and staff, and you voluntarily assume the risk that you and/or your family may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 either at the church, in the church worship service, or in the nursery or Sunday School. You agree to assume all the risks of attendance and participation for you and your family, and you waive any liability against the church and any other parties.
Safety Preparations/Precautions
  • The entire church will be cleaned as normal.
  • Sanitized before each service: door knobs, hand railings, office equipment, & other high-contact surfaces.
  • Hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and masks will be made available. Masks are welcome, but not required.
  • Please enter and exit through the front doors; unused areas of the church will be closed off.
  • Please only care and watch over the children in your own home. Please help us mitigate the mingling of children in the church building.
  • There will not be formal greeters or a paper copy of the bulletin.
  • We will not serve coffee, beverages, or snacks; but you are welcome to bring your own.
  • An offering box will be located near the info table for those that wish to give at the church.  Online giving is also available at our website via Pushpay.

These guidelines will stay in place until we are confident they are no longer necessary.  Thank you so much for helping with these details as we meet together on Sunday.
