First Christian
A lot of churches have begun to go back to in-person services. At First Christian, services Sunday will still be online. If you would like to watch the online service, contact the church office at 542-5651 regarding the time and links to the service.
Hopefully, worship will soon be in a more traditional sitting and back to normalcy. The plan is to start back May 31, however, when we come back there will be a few major changes.
There will be two shorter services on Sunday. Seating will be spread out in the sanctuary for social distancing. The services will be for all ages.
The church staff will clean and sanitize between services.
See you then.

Special meet and greet services will be at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m.
The pastors are Rev. Brandon Young and Rev. David Odom.

Oak Street Baptist
