Service Schedule Update

At First Baptist Church, our commitments are to be faithful to Christ, to protect as many people as possible, and to be as cooperative as possible with authorities in minimizing the spread of disease.  


First Baptist Church has canceled all corporate gatherings until further notice. We will still have all of our regularly-scheduled worship services (Sundays at 10:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and Wednesdays 6:30 p.m.), but they will be available exclusively online and will be accessible at and our Facebook page. Our Nocatee Campus will join our Downtown campus in the same livestream during this season. We are working creatively to create worship services that unite both campuses during these extraordinary times. 


This unanticipated health threat is an unprecedented event that reminds each one of us of our frailty and that we are weaker than we imagine, but God is more loving and caring toward us than we can ever know.

As we confront this difficulty, we can do it with the hope that God knows exactly what He’s doing. He amazingly knows how to turn evil for good, and we can pray together that this is exactly what happens from this situation. 


We look forward to celebrating the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ with you together in the coming weeks as a church spread out across this city.


All services will be streamed online at and on Facebook Live

What You Should Know About COVID-19


There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

Stay home when you are sick.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes.

Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask:

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.




Shortness of Breath

What to Do If You Are Sick?

Call your doctor: If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider immediately.

Stay home except to get medical care.

Separate yourself from other people and animals in your home.

Call ahead before visiting your doctor.

Wear a facemask if you are sick.

Cover your coughs and sneezes.

Clean your hands often.

Avoid sharing personal household items.

Clean all “high-touch” surfaces everyday.

Monitor your symptoms.

Home isolation: Stay at home until instructed to leave: Patients with confirmed COVID-19 should remain under home isolation precautions until the risk of secondary transmission to others is thought to be low. Talk to your healthcare provider: The decision to discontinue home isolation precautions should be made on a case-by-case basis, in consultation with healthcare providers and state and local health departments.
