First Baptist Church of Ellijay Family,
In an effort to keep our church family informed, we are providing the following update regarding our church and services:
At this time, per the recommendation of our Safety Advisory Team, FBC Ellijay remains at the most restrictive level of our church’s Pandemic Plan, and all procedures set forth on April 1 remain in place (see below for previous statement). All church activities remain suspended and the church buildings and offices are closed. This situation is fluid and ever-changing. Because of that, we cannot definitively say at this moment when we will be able to meet again. We are hoping that we will be able to meet as a church in some capacity on the 24th of May. But this is contingent upon the situation of our county as we get closer to that date, as well as upon continued guidance and directives from authorities.
The Safety Advisory Team is currently working on a comprehensive plan for moving forward, and we will continue to communicate regularly with our church family as the path forward becomes clearer in the next few weeks and as our plans are finalized. Please pray for God’s wisdom and clear direction as this team makes critical decisions in the coming weeks. We will provide another update on May 1, if not before.
We are in awe of God’s faithfulness to us during this time, and we are truly blessed to be part of such an amazing church family. Thank you for your faithfulness and your love. We ask you to continue to be faithful as you have been – continue to meet virtually instead of in person, continue to pray, continue to join us online for Sunday worship services and Wednesday night prayer meetings, and continue to communicate any needs to our staff.
Romans 15:13 “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
We love you!
