This Sunday (November 29) at First Baptist

Please join us for worship at First Baptist this Sunday!

Note: To satisfy social distancing requirements associated with prevention of the spread of COVID-19, we will be worshipping remotely only, using the web-access tool Zoom. If you are not already on the First Baptist mailing list, and wish to gain access to the worship service, please email us at fbithaca@gmail.com or call the church office at 607-273-5800.

  • This week we will continue with remote-only worship services at First Baptist.
  • Please join us as we celebrate the first Sunday of Advent!
  • At Sunday morning’s worship service Pastor Debbie will present a message entitled Stay Awake!; and
  • Following the service we will have a brief chance to visit in Breakout Rooms followed by Adult Education, which will provide an opportunity for us to share about opportunities to give this season.  As someone said, if we can’t do some  of the usual things we do during the holidays, finding more ways to give can lift our spirits!  Most of these have been sent in announcements, but it helps people to hear them and be able to ask questions.

The church building will not be open for in-person worship this Sunday. Please watch your email for announcements of this possibility from the Church Office on future Friday mornings. If you wish to attend an in-person service, please email the church office (see link above) in order that we have a contact list of those attending. Be prepared to wear a mask and follow all instructions at the church to maintain social distancing.

As usual, an audio version of the Scripture Reading and Message of this service will be posted on the Recorded Sermons page under this tab.

Saturday Evening Prayer Services

During the recent Lenten season, First Baptist joined together on Saturday evenings for special Lenten Prayer services.  These were so successful, especially after they went on-line using Zoom, that we have decided to continue them for the foreseeable future. Please consider joining us for these special services:

  • Saturday Evening Prayer services from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. These services will include opportunities for chant, Scripture reading, and silent meditation.
    These also will be offered only remotely using Zoom. See weekly email reminders for the Zoom Meeting link.

Please join us for one or more of these services!
