About Covid-19

By March 13, 2020 No Comments

First Bossier Family,

Our staff team has been engaged with the latest developments of the COVID-19 situation. We are prayerful, hopeful, planning, and preparing in every way we can. We trust in the Lord. We want to walk in faith and not fear.

As we move forward we want you to be aware of several key things:

We plan to have Sunday service this weekend. This coming Sunday I will be interviewing Bossier City Fire Chief Brad Zagone for insight as to how we are to proceed in light of this virus threat.

We are cleaning our facilities daily in intentional ways. We have stocked up on supplies to help keep our campus clean.

If you are navigating poor health or know you have been in contact with someone who has contracted the Coronavirus, please stay home and participate in our services online.

Some practical steps we are taking this Sunday are that we will not be shaking hands on the way in or observing our typical welcome-time during the worship services, reducing the risks as much as possible. We are going to great lengths to limit touch points and interactions, however we strongly feel that if the people of God can meet together, they should meet together. Should the city mandate the closure of services or events such as our weekly gatherings, we will abide by the mandate. Until then, we will assemble with our reduced risk protocol.

As for the future, a contingency plan has been put in place to facilitate online gatherings for both our Sunday morning services and our small group meetings. We will highlight this plan on Sunday during our worship services and that information will also be emailed to you next week.

This is a time where we need to encourage each other like never before. We need to pray like never before. Pray for our local, state, and national leaders.

Let’s be the People of God so that Bossier, Shreveport and beyond know the hope we have in Jesus.

In Christ,
Pastor Brad
