Worship on Sept 13 and 20 will be at Church AND Online

This  month we resume in-person Sunday morning worship as we gather outdoors in the church parking lot. The service will begin at 11:00 am (to allow Sunday School classes to meet on Zoom at 9:30 am.)

In addition to the parking lot service, you may continue to worship online.

All are encouraged to worship in whatever format you determine is the best option for you, taking your health and safety into account.

To Worship online, join us on the First Baptist Church of Pendleton Facebook page (@FirstBaptistChurchPendleton) at 11 am (you do not have to have a Facebook account to watch). After the service concludes, the video will still be available on the church Facebook page (click the “videos” tab). We plan to upload the service to our YouTube channel at a later time, but it will not be available there immediately. If you prefer to worship before 11 am on Sunday morning or if the technology does not cooperate, visit our YouTube channel to watch a service from a previous week and then check back later to watch this week’s service. Another option would be to watch one of the CBF Gathering services, available on CBF’s Facebook page. The Gathering service for July 28th includes a devotion by FBCP pastor Jennifer Rygg. 

To Worship in person, join us in the parking lot; the service will begin at 11 am. We plan to use a similar set up as we have for our recent Vespers services. 

  • You may bring a chair or remain in your vehicle. 
  • Because we will have a group of people gathered together, we do ask that everyone wear masks.
  • We will have folding chairs and masks available for your use.
  • Please continue to maintain 6 feet of distance from those not in your family/household.

Every layer of precaution helps protect one another; taking these precautionary measures is a way to love our neighbors and protect the most vulnerable among us.

Worshiping with Children: The worship service will include a children’s message that is geared both towards children watching online and for those attending worship in the parking lot.

  • For those worshiping at church, worship bags with an additional activity will be provided. Children will remain with their families throughout the service.
  • For those worshiping at home, children’s bulletins may be downloaded as a PDF (click here for the Sept 13 worship resources; click here for Sept 20 worship resources.) If you do not have access to a printer, the PDF also includes a code to unlock online activities children could do on a computer, tablet, or smart phone. Alternatively, ask your child to draw a picture of something from the service. 

We look forward to a meaningful time of worship! However we may worship, God will surely meet us there.
