To the Welcome Baptist Church Family,


     The current circumstances require we make some difficult but essential decisions. Hillsborough County initially limited all public and private gatherings to 50 people. The President has recommended these gatherings be limited to 10 people. The CDC has included a link from their website to the President’s recommendations which leads us to believe the CDC agrees with this recommendation. Today Hillsborough county updated their previous  order to limit the attendance of public and private gatherings which includes churches. The updated order now limits these gatherings to10 people. Obviously, we are concerned about the health of our church family and community. Also, we believe the testimony of the Welcome Baptist Church family should include being good citizens who obey the law. At the same time, we desire to honor God and continue to


     The following decisions are the result of prayerful consideration. Sunday School, Teen Meetings, Children’s Church, and all Youth Activities are cancelled until this order is lifted. All services are cancelled until this order is lifted. For this Sunday, March 22, the message will be available on our website by 11 am. By next Sunday we should be ready to livestream the Sunday morning message and we will make the video of these Sunday sermons available on YouTube Live via our website. We encourage our church family to participate in viewing the sermons online. To find our online sermons, click on the media tab below. By the way, I have great appreciation for Brother Clay Varnum and others who are diligently working to get our multimedia capabilities up to speed.

     We are here to minister to you even in these circumstances. If you need us, please reach out to us. We do not know how long this will last, but we want all our church family to be here when this is over. I thank our deacons for their help in making these decisions and our church family for embracing these decisions. 

God Bless,

Brother Charlie
