*Revised* Reopening Plan for GPBC

Posted in GPBC Events

Updated Friday 5/22“We are excited about President Trump’s support for reopening churches. We will be meeting with key directors of ministry on Saturday, 5/23, and are preparing for In-Person services on Sunday, May 31. Please review the REVISED guides linked for you below, and tune in on Sunday, May 24 for our Livestream Service for more information.” – Pastor Rick Adams

“We are not going back, we are going forward!” – Pastor Rick Adams

The past 10 weeks of the shutdown necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging, but God has been faithful! As we look forward to gathering together again with in-person services, we recognize that things will be different, especially at the beginning.

From practicing social distancing, to changing our tradition of shaking hands, and recommending the use of facemasks, much will be different. But one thing that remains constant is the faithfulness of God.

Please take a few minutes to review the documents attached here. The first is a Revised Reopening Schedule that details what the first several weeks will look like when we return to in-person services. The second document is a Revised Reopening Guide, which provides important information about guidelines and practices for our return to in-person services. A copy of the Revised Reopening Schedule and Revised Reopening Guide is in the mail to every local member of GPBC.

Please understand that while we have worked to project as best we can a pathway for the next several weeks, our plans may change as circumstances dictate. We will communicate with you every step of the way through this process.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at the church office. We love to talk with you!

God Bless You.

GPBC Celebrates 25 Years of Ministry to our Church with Pastor Brad & Kelley McFeters

This week, Greater Portland Baptist Church celebrated with Pastor Brad & Kelley McFeters 25 years of ministry at GPBC.

While the recognition was perhaps a little different than how we imagined it would be, due to the coronavirus shut-down, still we were able to congratulate them on this milestone in their life and ministry.

In addition to their 25th Anniversary at GPBC, the McFeters’ are also celebrating 35 years of marriage. Their children have given to them a trip to Hawaii to honor this occasion, and your love offering to them will be a help to make this trip even more memorable.
