COVID Pandemic Response

Important Note: For some time now we have been conducting our worship services in a hybrid, in-person/Zoom mode. In order to ensure everyone’s safety, we require that masks be worn and that worshipers maintain appropriate distancing. We have also been allowing congregants to sing in the sanctuary as long as they are wearing masks, but we are trying to limit the amount of congregational singing in each service.

The services will continue to be available via Zoom for those who do not yet feel comfortable returning to in-person worship or who are joining us from afar. If you are not already on the First Baptist mailing list, and wish to gain Zoom access to a service, please email us at or call the church office at 607-273-5800.

We continue to monitor the COVID-19 data for Tompkins County and will make future adjustments to in-person attendance policies as required of allowed.
