Dear church family,
As we enter the second week of the COVID-19 outbreak, here are a couple of things you need to know regarding what's happening at FBC Moultrie:
- All services will continue to be ONLINE ONLY. As of right now, there will be no worship services, Bible studies, or activities on our church campus. We will continue to broadcast worship services, daily video devotions, and other resources via our Facebook page and at www.firstmoultrie.org/watchWe will also continue to send out resources and links to digital curriculum via email.
- As of Monday, March 23, the church office hours are being adjusted to limit personal contact and the spreading of germs. The office will be open from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday if you need to drop off a donation or have other business at the church. In addition to these hours, our staff will continue to work from home and will be available via cell phone if you need anything.
We are continuing to monitor this unique situation and are working in conjunction with local officials in an effort to navigate this season in the best way possible. Please continue to pray for all those affected by the virus.
Although we are separated from one another physically, we want to stay connected spiritually. Please remember to pray with/for one another, check on each other, and support one another during this time. If the staff can do anything to help, we're just a phone call away.
Let's continue to "lead ourselves to be glad for grace" (James 1:3), even in times like this.
- Pastor Matt Peek

Dear church family,
How quickly things can change!  As of Monday evening, President Trump released special COVID-19 guidelines which include limiting group gatherings to 10 people or less.  Due to this, we will no longer be gathering in home groups this Sunday.  Instead, we encourage you to gather with your own family and join us at 10:30 a.m. this Sunday, March 22 for worship and Bible study.  Lee and a small music ensemble will be leading us in a few songs, and then I will teach a Bible lesson for us.  We may not be able to gather together in person, but we can join together in spirit.  As Paul said in Colossians 2:5, "For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ."
 
In addition to the Sunday morning video, our staff is working to put together several videos and resources for you this week, including Connect Group videos for both the Bible Studies for Life and Explore the Bible curriculums, daily devotional videos, prayer updates, and more.  Stay tuned through email and our church Facebook page for all these resources.
 
If you have any needs that we can help you with, or if you know of someone that we can minister to during this season, please let us know.  We are here to serve you, even in this strange time.
 
May the Lord bless us as we trust in him!
 
- Pastor Matt

Dear church family,

As of last night, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has issued guidelines asking that organizations not hold mass gatherings of more than 50 people at one time. In an effort to yield to our governing authorities and to be good neighbors to our community, we feel the need to comply with this request.

In an effort to help our church family stay connected in fellowship, worship, and discipleship during this time, we are asking our Connect Group leaders to organize small group gatherings this Sunday. Beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, the church staff will provide a video-based time of musical worship and a message by Pastor Matt on our website and through Facebook Live. Our goal is that our church will be able to meet together in small groups that morning to worship, study God's Word, and pray together.

We know that some people may not be able to meet in homes or may not feel comfortable doing so, and we certainly understand this precaution. Moreover, if you are sick or have recently experienced any signs of illness, we encourage you to stay home for the sake of everyone's health. If you are unable to attend one of these home groups, you can always tune in to the video broadcast in your own home via our church website or Facebook Live.

The church staff is working diligently to lead our church to continue to grow in the Lord and in our relationships with one another, even during this unusual time. Please pray with us that God will be glorified in this season of ministry.

Don't forget, you can always stay up-to-date on the latest information during this time at firstmoultrie.org/updates.

Dear church family,
Our church leadership has been tracking the continued spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our state and region. We have been formulating a plan of response and will continue to monitor changes and make adjustments in the coming days.
For now, here are a few things you need to know:
1. Church services for this Sunday, March 15 will CONTINUE AS SCHEDULED. We have been in contact with local health officials, and they are not advising churches to cancel services at this time. We will continue to monitor things over the coming days and will communicate any changes as they occur.
2. We are taking extra precautions to sanitize our facilities. Our custodial staff has already been taking extra steps to make sure all of our surfaces are clean and sanitized, and we will continue to do so.
3. Be smart about personal hygiene. Wash your hands with soap and warm water. Try not to touch your face. Do what you can to limit the spread of germs.
4. Please stay home if you are sick. If you are running fever, have a persistent cough, or have other cold-like symptoms, do yourself and others a favor and please stay home. Rest and get better. We'll look forward to seeing you after you get better!
5. Trust in the Lord. Yes, the COVID-19 outbreak is a serious concern, but it is not out of God's control. We serve a God who is sovereign over all things--including pandemics. He calls us not to fear or be worried, but to trust him and pray. Now is a great time to communicate to the world around us that we can have faith in Jesus while we walk in wisdom regarding health and safety.
6. Pray. Pray for wisdom for our government and organizational leaders (both national and local) as they make decisions. Pray for our staff as we seek to lead our church's response. Pray for all those affected by the virus. Pray for people to remain calm and not be overcome with fear and panic. Pray that God would be glorified in this situation.
The Lord is in control! Let's trust him.
See you on Sunday,
- Matt
