Do not be Afraid!

Welcome to our website. We’re glad you stopped by.

Dear FBCS Family,

The Lord is with us, we will not be afraid. The health and safety of congregation and community is of great priority.  We want to share the steps and procedures we are taking to keep everyone safe and how we will continue to serve Jesus with our mission and our congregation over the next few weeks. Each community has a limited number of resources at this time. Together, we can slow the spread of the COVID-19 by keeping people from gathering too closely or with those who may not be able to fight off coronavirus. When we do this it gives our hospital system time to care for those in immediate need and time to get all the resources they need. The strategy of the CDC is not based on fear or an overreaction. It’s just the mathematics of helping people. Soap beats coronavirus and love already beat fear. Here is a picture.

In the interest of public health and safety, First Baptist Church of Seville is taking the following measures:

  • Creating a plan supporting the Body of Christ gathering for fellowship in safe and meaningful ways.
  • Designing methods for caring for congregants and community.
  • Continuing in obedience with the mission of magnifying God by making and developing committed Christians.

We encourage you to look to the Lord Jesus first while you take care of others. In our community, we can do so much more than we can do on our own. We’re planning for a wonderful Sunday of Worship. More information to come to you via email and through this website. For now, know that I love you and that I’m praying for you.

Please remember to follow the precautions and preventive measures as recommended by the Ohio Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control:

  • wash your hands often with soap and water
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands,
  • avoid close contact with people who are sick,
  • and please stay home when you are sick.

Again, I’m encouraging you to look deeping into the Word of God and spend time with the Lord Jesus first while you take care of others. In our community, we can do so much more together than we can do on our own. We will update you soon with Sunday’s Worship Service Plans. More information to come to you via email and through this website. For now, know that I love you and that I’m praying for you.

With Love,

Pastor Benjamin Payne

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, precious love of God. It chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the 99. I couldn’t earn it, I don’t deserve it, still, You give Yourself away. Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, precious love of God.
