Join us in person!

Century Baptist has begun holding worship services in our Sanctuary. We are doing our best to navigate this transition as smoothly as possible. While things won’t be entirely ‘back to normal’, we will attempt to make the experience as natural and welcoming as possible. Thank you for your grace and patience during this transition. 

As of right now, we will have two services on Sundays, at 8:30am (traditional) and 10:00am (contemporary), and they will both be held in the Sanctuary. 

There will be warm and friendly faces to greet you at the doors, and they will help you limit the surfaces you need to touch on your way in and out of the church building and the sanctuary. 

In order to allow for adequate spacing, we will be blocking off every other pew in the Sanctuary. There will be people in each aisle to assist you and your family with finding a place to sit. Because we will be seating a variety of groups, from 1 person to 10 people, please be patient and gracious as we try to make space for as many as possible. 

Since there is a limited capacity in the Sanctuary, and we are unsure about how many people will attend, we will have the service playing on the TVs in the Connecting Place during both the 8:30am and 10:00am services. 

When you get to your seat, you’ll notice that there are no Bibles, Connect Cards, or pens in the pew in front of you. If you need a Bible during the service, would like to fill out a Connect Card with information or a prayer request, or if you need anything else, please visit the Info Desk in the foyer. 

We will not be handing out bulletins when you arrive at the service. Please stay tuned to The Vine (our weekly email newsletter, subscribe here) and  here (our website) for ministry updates and information about future services. 

We will also not be passing offering baskets during the service. There will be offering collection boxes by each of the main doors of the Sanctuary for your convenience. You may also give online through our website or by texting CENTURYBAPTIST to 73256. 

At the end of the service, we will have ushers help us dismiss in an orderly way to avoid congestion in the aisles. 

The Century Cafe will be open before and after each service if you would like to have a cup of coffee and maybe catch up with some friends. We will not have donuts and snacks available. 

Between services, we will wipe down high-touch surfaces and alternate the pews that were blocked off in first service to reduce contact points.  

Please note, there will not be any Sunday School classes for any age throughout the morning, and the nursery will not be available for either service. 

We will still have our service available at livestream.com, Facebook Live, and KFYR-TV at 10:00am.  

Whether you join us in person, online, or on TV, we thank you for being a part of the Century Baptist Church family! If you have any questions, please email us or call the church office at 701-223-0478.
