Worship Center Seating
The number of those attending our worship services has continued to increase - praise the Lord! With that joy, we realized that those returning to corporate worship are many of our more concerned, cautious, compromised (by illness, age, etc.) members. Which means we're all due a reminder of how to be mindful of one another.
Every other pew will continue to remain blocked off. Masks continue to be strongly encouraged, but not required for attending worship. We also know that there are varying degrees of precaution our congregation is taking. So we have designated different sections of the worship center as follows:
- If you plan to wear your mask & keep it on, sit on the right side of the worship center when you enter. The balcony will also be available for those who wish to keep some extra distance.
- If you do not plan to wear a mask during the service, please sit on the left side of the worship center.
- If you're most likely going to wear your mask during the service (but are comfortable sitting a little closer to others, especially those who may remove their mask), please sit in the middle two sections.
You'll see one of these flyers (below) posted on every entrance to help direct you where to sit on Sunday.
Two hand sanitizer stations are available in the building - one in the Welcome Center and the other near the entrance of the Worship Center. However, the best practice is to wash your hands with warm water and soap for 20 seconds. We keep our bathrooms fully stocked with soap and paper towels.
Since the pandemic, we have tried to limit the number of contact points. As such, we have taken out the "passing of plates" for our collection of tithes and offering and replaced this with two wooden boxes - one in the sanctuary near the doors and the other in the Welcome Center.
In order to cut down on congestion, and to help all of our tellers out in their part, we ask that you please place your tithes, offering, or other gift in one of these boxes before the service begins. You can even do so during the first worship song if you forget. This will help further smooth out our new process of collecting and counting.
You can also give online through our website: fbcwillowpark.com/giving.

Early on we adjusted our office hours. As we have opened back up and begun more ministries, we have modified our hours again to what was more normal. Currently, the church office is open Monday-Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The office is closed on Fridays.
