Our Response to COVID-19

The church will be suspending in-person Sunday Services and weekday events until further notice. 


We will be streaming our worship services but the only folks present will be the ones producing the service. We’ll add some things to help families worship together and some tools to help you incorporate the message into your life right now. We want you to participate, not just watch.


In the meantime, First Baptist Church is open for business. The staff and volunteers are a phone call or email away. We are working hard to keep us all connected. We are trying our best to communicate more than ever so we can stick together. 


Please connect through our website, the fbcplattecity mobile app, Facebook or Instagram (FBC Platte City). If you’re struggling with the computer stuff and not able to figure it all out, call the church office. We’ll do our best to help you or find someone who can. We’ll even come to your home if that’s appropriate for you.


This is what we do- Connect people to God, each other, and the needy world. We really want to live out “For Our Neighbors.” 

It may be that God is going to use this time to teach us all what it means to be the church in our community. 


Please help us brainstorm ways we can bless each other and our neighbors. Share ideas of how we can help.


We’re all looking forward to getting back to “normal.” I am grateful to be closely connected with the Sheriff’s Emergency Management Team and the Platte County Health Department. As circumstances unfold, we will be responding in real-time. I won’t be surprised if it’s a new normal. 


God is not going to let a time like this go to waste as He shapes us into the image of His dear Son!


I LOVE Being Your Pastor!
