FBNO COVID-19 Update — March 17th

Posted by on

Dear Church Family:

We hope you are healthy and safe and had the opportunity to watch the worship service yesterday on Facebook. Ricky and the praise team did a wonderful job leading worship and Dr. Jamie Dew preached an inspiring and timely message.

Due to the rising positive cases of the coronavirus and limitations placed on public gatherings by the CDC, the state, and the city, it is the recommendation of the ministers and lay leaders to only live stream the Sunday morning services and to shift in-person programming to online platforms where possible until these restrictions have been lifted. We recognize that the situation is constantly changing, and we will continue to adapt and update the congregation.

We had approximately 160 households tune in on Facebook and more on the website for the service yesterday, and we believe this type of service and connection can continue with success through this health crisis. Thank you to those who gave through our online giving. Please do continue to give to the best of your ability as we continue to do the work of the church.

Dr. Bo Rice is preaching this week. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for an encouraging video message from Bo during the week. You’ll also be hearing from ministerial staff and small group leadership about ways to stay connected during this time.

Our ELC is closed and will follow the Orleans Parish School system schedule. Teachers reported today to begin a “deep clean” of their classrooms to prepare for the children’s return.

Our church family’s health and well-being are of top priority. We believe that following the city’s plan is the best way to love our neighbors.

We will continue to communicate as things change. Please let us know of any needs you may have or that you see in the community.

Prayerfully submitted,

The FBNO ministerial staff
