Welcome Back to Campus

While First Baptist Flora has continued meeting as the Church, through virtual means, we returned to campus/in house worship on June 7. We will continue to follow the guidelines of our local and national government; therefore, this is Phase One. Before the pandemic, First Baptist Flora worked hard to provide a clean and safe environment. We have identified additional measures to take to make our facility as clean and safe as possible.

Returning to campus will require every church member/attender to take specific actions to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Please practice social distancing, wear a mask (recommended), wash your hands, clean surfaces, and stay home if you are sick or instructed to quarantine. We will only be able to safely maintain our return to campus if we all commit to doing our part.

While this document provides guidance for Phase One, individuals must consider their personal risk and determine whether to increase their interactions on campus.
