The safety of our church family and community is paramount to First Baptist Church of Pitman. Should we decide to reopen our services to the public please be assured that we will take every precaution possible in accordance to CDC/WHO guidelines and recommendations. This survey is part one of our efforts to pursue the possibility of reopening our church. In the event we are not 100% ready, prepared, and confident that we can keep everyone safe, we will not reopen our building for services.

COVID-19 or coronavirus is nothing like we have ever seen or experienced. Many of us are scared for ourselves, our families, and our friends. According to the World Health Organization, COVID-19 has brought over 900K cases, 45K deaths, and 200+ countries are impacted. Despite these scary times we have seen people from all walks of life pull together to assist their fellow man. On top of that, we have confidence and faith in God and the heroes in the healthcare field to defeat COVID-19. God, determination, faith, hope, and love are the most powerful instruments we can possibly hope to have.

So many people have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. Whether by loss of income or job, increased stress, and countless other negative consequences.

If you, your family, friends, or loved ones are short on faith, hope, determination, and love please allow FBCoP to help pick you up. Whether you need prayer, groceries, or someone to talk to over the phone, we are here for you.

FBCoP has felt the sting of COVID-19 as we are not able to fellowship or provide the hands-on ministry we are known for within our community. In an effort to maintain our fellowship we have daily prayer meetings at 6:30 pm, Bible Studies every Wednesday at 7:15pm and Church services every Sunday at 10:15 am . For more information on how to attend one of these events please see our website or our events section on our Facebook page.

Much like countless others, we are financially challenged during these hard times. Our church has been around for 100 years. It has seen the Great Depression, WW1, WW2, 2008 stock market crash but nothing compares to our current circumstances. In an effort to curtail our expenses we have turned off our boiler and temporarily discontinued our services with our contracted exterminator. We have also suspended the salaries of our Music Director and Church Secretary, and Pastor Randy’s retirement plan. If you are able to pray or send positive thoughts our way we need your support. FBCoP is excited about continuing and adding more activities that we have planned for 2020 to help our community here in Pitman and beyond.

Together, united in prayer, hope, and faith we shall overcome COVID-19 with a deeper appreciation of our family, friends, and loved ones.
