Each Sunday, First Baptist Gulfport will offer corporate worship
on campus  at 10:30am only.

Before you come on campus...

Ask the following questions on behalf of your entire group before you enter the campus for a Life Group or Worship Service:

Am I showing any flu-like symptoms?

Have I had a fever of 100.4 or higher in the past 14 days?

Have I had prolonged exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19?

Is there any medical reason why I shouldn’t be around others?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, we strongly encourage you to attend worship online for several more weeks.

Worship Services

Upon Your Arrival

Things will be a little different. Please maintain social distance as you enter and exit, and ensure that you are wearing a mask while indoors.

  1. You’ll be met by a parking lot greeter who will direct you to the Entrance nearest to your chosen parking spot. Interior and exterior doors will be held open by volunteers or by door stops to ensure a touchless entry experience.  
  2. A Lobby Greeter will greet you at the Entrance. The doors to every Entrance will be held open so you can have a touchless entry experience.  A greeter will welcome you and help direct you to the correct ministry area (Life Group location, children's ministry area, Worship Center, etc). If you forget your mask, we will have some available for you upon entry.
  3.  As you enter the Worship Center for either the 9AM or 10:30AM worship service, an usher will determine the size of your group and usher you to a seat as near to the front as possible. Seating everyone as they arrive from the front of the worship center to the back will limit contact.
*Please stay near or in your seat during the Worship Service and remember to stay in your seat for departure instructions at the conclusion of the Worship Service.
*Starting August 16th, the preschool, children and student programs will ALL be available on campus at 9AM.  
All children are welcome to participate in their age-graded Life Groups! For more information, visit our Family Ministries web pages.

Some Sunday Morning Life Groups have resumed assembling! For a complete list of groups, visit here > 

Health & Safety

Interior doors to the Worship Center will remain open to limit contact of door handles.
Sanitation
Hand sanitizing stations will be available in the lobby areas. Our team will clean and disinfect frequently contacted surfaces in the Worship Center and throughout the building regularly throughout the morning.
Face Masks
Effective immediately, every person entering the building will be required to wear a mask unless medically prohibited from doing so. Remember, wearing a mask keeps you from spreading the virus if you are an asymptomatic carrier. Wearing the mask is a BIG way you can love your neighbor.

*We will have face masks available in the lobby areas for those who do not have their own.
Restrooms
Restrooms throughout the building will be available for use and will be cleaned throughout the morning.
NOTE: If you are not comfortable gathering on campus or you are in a high-risk group, you can continue to participate in a live worship experience by subscribing to our YouTube Channel or by joining our Facebook Live Stream on Sunday mornings.

Social Distancing

Seating

In an effort to maintain the 6ft. social distancing guideline, groups of seats have been placed six feet apart throughout the Worship Center. As you enter the Worship Center, an usher will determine the size of your group and usher you to a seat as near to the front as possible. Seating everyone as they arrive from the front of the worship center to the back will limit contact.

Family members should sit together, and out of respect for others, we ask that you maintain social distance throughout the on-campus worship experience.

Exiting

When the worship experience is over, please keep your seat to receive instructions for exiting the building.
