Covid Update

We have had “in person” services for almost one year and are thankful to say that we have not had this virus spread from our church! Praise be to God!!! Our numbers in attendance are continuing to grow! It is exciting to see our families returning and new friends coming to join in worship! We are also thankful that our church has not only been able to remain open through this season of Covid 19, but that we have included singing music.  We truly appreciate our congregation doing their part to stop the spread of the virus by wearing masks when appropriate and using hand sanitizer upon entering the building.  To continue to protect each other, please remember to distance yourself from another person/family (in all directions.) We don’t like to split families between pews but in order to save space AND keep 6 feet away from another person/family, some may have to sit “together” by splitting between the “green” ends of two pews.  There should be room for 3 adults and one or two children, depending on their size.  We truly appreciate this!  It’s what we have to do to try to keep others safe and use our space efficiently.

 

SOMETHING NEW:  Delayed…

FBC Amsterdam will be holding services  at Nathan Littauer Extended Care. We are thankful that our Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities are beginning to open up. Please pray that “Sentinel” opens, soon.
