Returning to Church

We are excited to announce that due to the recent softening of Alabama’s social gathering restrictions,  

FBCMO will be holding service in our sanctuary this Sunday Morning beginning at 10:15am.  Though the  

restrictions have been relaxed, they have not been completely lifted.  Therefore, for us to hold onsite  

services, we must adhere to the remaining guidelines or else we will have to forfeit this option.  To ensure we keep everyone as safe as possible and remain compliant, we ALL must adhere to the following guidelines:   


  • Social Distancing  

  • Children and youth/students should sit with their families.  

  • Families must sit together in the designated seating areas.   

  • Honor the six‐foot social distancing guideline between family groups  

  • Physical contact such as handshakes and hugs are discouraged, smile and wave instead  

  • For your safety:  

  • We will make the church service as ‘touchless’ as possible by propping open doors, eliminating bulletins, offering plates will be held at the end of church in the vestibule, Hymnals, paper and pens have been temporarily removed from the back of pews.  

  • Upon entering the church, please make your way to your seats.  Please do not congregate in  

the vestibule or isles   

  • Hand sanitizer will be available in designated areas  

  • Upstairs restrooms will be open by the stairwell  

  • If you are considered a high‐risk individual, you are encouraged to stay home and watch the live feed via Facebook.   

  • High‐risk individuals include those 65 and older, or have chronic lung disease, serious heart  

condition, cancer treatment, diabetes, pregnant, etc.   

  • If you are experiencing flu‐like symptoms, such as cough, fever, chills, runny nose, sore throat  

and/or difficulty breathing, you must stay home.  

  • Please plan to enter and exit the church at the two designated entrances:  

  • Covered awning entrance by Front Vestibule   

  • Please leave parking in this upper lot for anyone with physical disabilities  

  • Lower covered awning entrance by Childcare  

  • Only the 10:15am Worship Service will be held.  All other ministries will be suspended for the time being.  This includes:  

  • No Sunday School  

  • No Choir  

  • No Valet Services  

  • No Children Church  

  • No Nursery   

  • All applicable areas (sanctuary, vestibule, elevator, etc.) will be disinfected and cleaned per CDC guidelines prior to every service     

  • If you are not yet comfortable attending service, we fully understand and encourage you to stream the service through our Facebook live feed.  


Signs will be posted and ushers stationed around the church and in the sanctuary to help guide and assist you.  We know things will be different for a little while, however we are excited to see your smiling faces again and look forward to worshiping our Lord together.
