Re-gathering the Church

As the church, we are better together and we are extremely excited to take the next step in re-gathering as the church and meeting in person again.  As we begin to prepare for this transition, our staff has been praying and meeting regularly to plan these next steps as we continue to follow the recommendations of the local, state and federal guidelines.  This transition will look and feel different than normal services, as we will continue to maintain social distancing of 6-feet, sanitizing areas, and wearing masks.  We encourage those at risk or elderly to continue to watch our services online and participate from home.  Our modified schedule is listed below, as well as on Facebook.  We are looking forward to visiting with you face to face.

Pray and Give

Our work as First Baptist Jennings is alive and well. While the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic is affecting our lives, the Lord is using this threatening force to open doors for us to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others through creative ways. While communities, cities and even countries are slowing to a standstill, the Lord still reigns in all of His power and glory. Continue to PRAY.

We Praise the Lord for the church’s giving pattern over the last several months. As we find ourselves practicing being the “CHURCH” in new creative ways without assembling as the large congregation, here is how you can continue to exercise your giving.
1. You can give electronically by:
https://fbcjennings.com/giving
Click “Give Now” Choose Bank, Debit / Credit Card
Fill in the appropriate fields of information. If you choose direct payment from your bank account, the Bank will verify & email you instructions to confirm it is you. The Bank will send a code to your cell phone.

2. Text any amount to 84321

3. Mail: First Baptist Church Jennings
1001 Cary Ave.
