In-Person Worship, Sunday, March 7, 10am
Beginning on March 7, up to 25 participants are welcome to attend our services in the FBC sanctuary. Though attendance will remain limited, we are excited to take this step after almost a full year in which we’ve been unable to worship together in-person! We hope that this step will make our services more accessible and meaningful for all the members and friends of First Baptist Church! Masks and careful social distancing will be required at all times while inside the FBC building. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the building and we will take additional precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Because attendance will be so limited, RSVPs are required for in-person participants. You can register electronically using the link below, or by calling the FBC Office. Follow this link to RSVP for the service on Sunday, March 7.

Please let Pastor Laura know if you would like to join her and others for this midday tea!
Difficult Conversations Workshop Series, March 11, 18 and 25, 1pm
Families and churches have always struggled with difficult conversations. But the current toxic and politically divisive ethos of our country has made it even harder. Widely varying perspectives based on different sources of information and understandings of “the facts” have made bridging the relational divides even more strenuous. And yet our Christian calling to live in loving relationships with others and to be Christ’s ambassadors of reconciliation remains. Our calling to be peacemakers involves how we relate to family and church members, as well as the work we do within the public sphere. And all of this requires us to be able to engage well with others during difficult conversations. These three zoom workshops are designed to help you in this endeavor. Dan and Sharon Buttry will be leading these workshops on Thursdays, March 11, 18, and 25. Note the registration lists time as central time 12 noon – 1 pm, which is 1 pm – 2 pm eastern time (Indianapolis). Click here to register.
