Returning to Live Worship Update

The Administrative Council met on December 14 and had a thorough discussion of the Covid-19 statistics and cases in our state and county. By consensus, it was determined that it would not be safe to return to live worship at the present time. Even though this was a difficult decision, the safety of our people remains the highest priority. The Council members will continue to monitor the situation with careful consideration to how schools and colleges manage the pandemic. The Council will meet again for reevaluation on February 15, 2021.

-Pastors Leonard Harmon, Carol Teare and members of the Administrative Council (David Palmer, Marshal Iehl, Anne Lange, Dianne Van Gorder, Clare Palmer, Dwayne Price, Susan Price, and Marcia Street)

Services will continue to be offered online on our FBC Waterloo Iowa YouTube channel.
