St. James Baptist Church Fayetteville, AR Fri, 26 Jun 2020 17:04:39 +0000 en-US hourly 1 St. James Baptist Church 32 32 Coronavirus – COVID-19 Update Thu, 25 Jun 2020 13:00:18 +0000 I wanted to give you an update on where we are as a church regarding re-entry back into the church on July 12th.  Over the last several weeks, we’ve been monitoring all that is going on and consulting with health care professionals, along with the feedback from the survey that was conducted – has led us to postponing the re-entry until further notice.  While we are saddened by the influx of new cases in Northwest Arkansas, we remain dedicated to ensuring that every precaution is taken for the safety of everyone.  We are in a very challenging season and as with any good church, we endeavor to put you first.  We hear you loud in clear in your survey responses and we are making the appropriate adjustments for our anticipated reunion.

We are very thankful and grateful for you still hanging in there with us.  Your viewership and financial generosity have been such a blessing and encouragement. We so much appreciate you along with our many guests and friends.

Please stay close as we hope to have some news in the very near future about coming together again.  We will be looking at how the state opens our local school districts, which will prompt us to potentially follow suit.  Tentatively, the local schools are scheduled to open on August 13th.

Longing to see you soon,

Pastor Curtiss
