Worship From Home - January 9th 2022

Happy Lord's Day, everyone. As we join together for worship, I pray that you would experience God's warmth and comfort.  This is the day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice, and be glad in it. As you worship this morning, I pray that the Holy Spirit would stir each heart present, as we continue to strive to become more and more like Jesus each day.

Re-Opening First Cornwallis Baptist Church

The Deacons Board is delighted to announce that First Cornwallis will be opening its doors to the public for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic started on October 11, 2020; Thanksgiving Sunday. Some of the ways in which our regular Sunday services ran prior to COVID-19 have changed and new safety measures are being taken.

To help you prepare and ease your worries about what is coming, the Deacons Board, in consultation with the Canadian Baptists of Atlantic Canada and Nova Scotia Public Health, has prepared a COVID-19 Prevention Plan that will help us to worship together safely as we re-open.

Below is a quick summary of what you can expect:
  • Wearing a non-medical mask will be mandatory for anyone inside the church building at all times, unless they have a valid medical reason in accordance with regulations from Nova Scotia Public Health
  • Physical distancing must be adhered to while inside the church building
  • A pre-screening questionnaire will be given in the entryway of the church to ensure anyone worshipping with us is not experiencing symptoms of COVID-19
  • Visitors to our church will be asked to provide their name and contact information so they can be contacted in the event of a potential case of COVID-19 at the church
  • Offering will be collected at the entrance to the Sanctuary
  • The nursery will be closed until further notice
  • Communion will be discontinued until further notice
  • All high-contact surfaces in the church building will be disinfected before every service
  • There will be no hymnals, Bibles, or chorus books in the Sanctuary. All song lyrics and Scripture will be shown on the projector screen at the front of the Sanctuary
  • Congregational singing will only be allowed if they are wearing a non-medical mask
  • If there is a suspected potential case of COVID-19 in the church building, strict measures will be taken at that time to ensure everyone is kept as safe as possible

We hope that this helps you to understand what changes we have made to ensure that everyone worshipping with us is kept safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

May God bless us and continue to watch over us during these difficult times.
