FBC Paris's Weekly Update

March 25, 2020

                    Thank you for participating with us in our Facebook live broadcast last Sunday. It was certainly different preaching to an empty sanctuary, but it was great knowing that the church was worshiping together through the avenue of technology. While it was not the same as being gathered together in one place, it was amazing to sense God’s presence even as we sang and considered His Word together.

               As we continue to monitor conditions and recommendations regarding the current COVID-19 crisis, we can now tell you that we will not have any in-person worship services on March 29 or April 5. We will continue to broadcast Sunday morning worship services at 10:15 a.m. via our Facebook page just as we do each week. Please see recommendations included in this newsletter on how to get the most out of our online worship services.

We will continue to communicate information to you about future plans through our Facebook page, our website, and our weekly newsletter. We also hope you are enjoying “The Daily Word” posts on our Facebook page.

                Looking forward to sharing a message with you this Sunday from John 18!

In Christ,

Bro. Trent


In the midst of these changing times, we are still able to interact with each other. Below are a few resources to help you connect with others.

  • Zoom

    Zoom is the leader in modern enterprise video communications, with an easy, reliable cloud platform for video and audio conferencing, collaboration, chat, and webinars across mobile devices, desktops, telephones, and room systems. This resource can help you connect with multiple small group members at once through video chat. It is perfect for Discipleship Groups or Sunday School classes!

  • Facebook groups

    Facebook Groups are a great way to keep in touch with others in church. You can create your own group for your specific small group, invite the members of that group to join it, and share information instantly. You can upload videos, post photos, add text to check in on others, and more. Facebook even has privacy settings that you can utilize in order to secure your groups.
