Welcome to


Baptist         Church

Updated January 14, 2021

 On behalf of the CLT, I am happy to announce that we are going to officially  reopen the church

for in-person worship January 24th


Each week we have had a few people show up for services and we have not turned anyone away.

If you are interested in coming this Sunday the 17th, we are considering it a "soft" opening

and anyone is welcome to join us. 


We are continuing to ask that covid guidelines be followed- wearing a mask, social distancing and

hand hygiene. We continue to sanitize whenever the church is used.


We will continue to live stream for those who have concerns about

attending in person. 


 We will stream every Sunday morning starting at 10:00 am (central time zone)


Please join us at our YouTube channel at: HERE or listen to the

recorded version HERE. 

 Also, masking is required in the church building when you are unable to socially distance from others. 

We will have masks available if you do not have one.


Please continue to pray for one another during this time of grieving and pray for

our leadership team as we work on pulpit supply and start the process

of finding an interim pastor. 

December 30th, 2020

The CLT is pleased to announce that Rev. Dr. Preston VanLoon has accepted the Interim Pastor position at

First Baptist. Preston is well known to most of us as he is a member of First Baptist and he has been helping

to provide pulpit supply the last few months. Preston also has experience in grief support which our congregation

is in need of as we come to terms with the loss of Pastor Bob.


We look forward to working with Preston during this transition time in our church. Preston's first official Sunday

as Interim Pastor will be December 10th.
