Social Distancing

During these days of social distancing, we are keeping the office open with four or five people most of the time. Ministry staff is calling a group of church members daily. Our homebound ministry team is staying in touch with their constituency. 

Taped worship services and Bible study for children and youth

We are posting a taped worship service on Sundays. Age appropriate Bible studies for children and adults have been recorded and posted. Youth are using Zoom to meet for Bible study and small group discussion.

From what I’ve seen on social media, I don’t think we are doing anything unique with this.

All the online work is equipping us to be more online with some routine events when we return “live.”

Backpack ministry continues

Our benevolent team continues to meet people at the regular appointed time for food distribution. Our backpack ministry is coordinating with the school district to continue that food distribution. 

Child Development Center remains open

Our Child Development Center is still open with a greatly reduced population. Most parents have been very appreciative. 

Social Distancing at Inman FBC
Jeremiah Childers, the Minister Education and Senior Adults, at FBC Inman, developed a video that helps the church’s children (and adults) understand what the church looks like during these times of social distancing. See the video at
