FPC updates during coronavirus pandemic

May you be made strong with all the strength which comes from his glorious power, so that you may be able to endure everything with patience.

— Colossians 1:11

May 25 update from Dolly Jacobs

I wanted to let you know that Session has approved a COVID-19 Task Force to work on three important areas as we move forward. This task force is made up of staff members, several committee chairs, and members who are medical professionals. Our three objectives are:

  1. Create policies and procedures about funerals and weddings in light of COVID-19 and the governor’s Phase 2 announcement.
  2. Continue to enhance our live-streamed Sunday morning worship.
  3. Prepare for what it will look like for us to be together on our campus again.

Please pray for this task force as they are researching, discussing, and planning at this time. We will be meeting weekly and will make decisions month-to-month as the understanding of the effects of this pandemic change. Report to Session, May 18, 2020.


May 1 update from Neil Dunnavant

On behalf of all the pastors and staff, we wish you all God’s blessings and hope and pray you are well. We also miss being with you all very much. Full text.


Campus closed, activities canceled

All church-related events (including the Weekday Preschool Center and any church events scheduled off campus) are canceled. However, our Hot Dish & Hope ministry for the hungry and homeless is distributing take-out meals at the door. Canceled events include small group meetings and committee meetings, and we hope groups will not meet in members’ homes during this time.



Our financial needs continue even as our doors remain closed. Please mail checks to 617 N. Elm St., Greensboro, NC 27401. You can also give online here, or download and use the SecureGive mobile app for Apple iOS | Android.
