First Baptist Church, Ponoka is once again open for services with public health guidelines and restrictions in place.
Note: We would like to update our church family regarding Sunday Worship Services following the announcement of new government restrictions on Tuesday, Dec. 8th. Places of worship are now restricted to 15% of fire code capacity limits. FBC Ponoka has made the decision to hold regular service at 10:30 am; however, due to capacity restrictions, we will only be able to accommodate about 45 attendees, as we also have to account for individuals who are directly or indirectly involved in running or participating in the service (praise team, ushers, sound technicians, pastor, etc). Those choosing to attend church in person are required by the restrictions to wear a mask (age 3 and up) for the entire service, and physical distancing between households (not cohorts) must be maintained. Therefore, we would strongly encourage our church family to take this opportunity to participate by viewing our services from home via livestream, Sunday mornings at 10:30, during this season of enhanced restrictions. The Livestream can be found on the FBC church website at the top of the page. www.fbcponoka.org/live
We are planning for this to be in effect for the next 5 weeks, beginning Sunday, Dec. 13, through to and including Sunday, Jan. 10, 2021.
NEW: Physical distancing between households (not cohorts) must be maintained.
Mask use is mandatory (everyone over 3 years of age).
These measures will help limit exposure, reduce outbreaks, and help protect vulnerable members who attend.
Emails will be sent regularly to keep you up to date on what we're doing to stay connected to each other in different ways. Check out the VIDEO page or the Vimeo and YouTube links at the top right hand corner to see the most recent sermon and previous sermons. The audio recording is on the SERMONS page and sermon notes will be posted here under the BULLETIN tab.
We want to keep connected during this time when we can't all physically be together! If you are on Facebook please join our First Baptist Church Ponoka Group, here you can view a short weekly message, share encouragement and prayer requests with each other. You can always email or call the church, someone will be here 9am-12pm every day of the week.
God bless you all!
