Welcome to Wheelersburg Baptist Church
Wheelersburg Baptist Church
For over one hundred years the Lord has enabled the Wheelersburg Baptist Church to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to minister to people on a local, national and world-wide basis. We at W.B.C., with God’s help, seek to live lives that bring honor and glory to our Lord. We are a warm and friendly group who realize that every member is a minister to others for the furtherance of the Gospel. As a result we not only seek to provide for the spiritual welfare of our own members, but endeavor to help others both locally and globally.
Wheelersburg Baptist Church is committed to: * Calling people to repentance and acceptance of Jesus as Lord and Savior. * The teaching of salvation as a gift of God’s grace without man’s works. * The necessity of Christ’s sacrifice for the payment of sins. * Public baptism to proclaim one’s faith in Jesus Christ. * The teaching of the sufficiency of God’s Word. * Understanding our dependency upon the Holy Spirit in living holy lives.
Greetings WBC Family,
On Sunday morning, August 9th, at 10:30 am, we’re planning to meet again for corporate worship! Here are some of the most important items to keep in mind.
-We will begin with only the Sunday morning worship service for a period of time, without Sunday School, nursery (although the nursery will be available for nursing mothers), children’s church, etc. This will give us time to make necessary adjustments to our new “normal” in terms of appropriate social distancing around the building, etc. When we consider it wise, we will begin to add to the schedule other necessary ministries which help us fulfill our mission.
-We are asking those in any “at risk” category to remain at home and join us via Livestream. Attending live services during a pandemic is not a test of one’s faith. Please go to Wheelersburg Baptist Church Facebook Page for the service LIVE or visit our website to follow the link to view these sermons. Or CLICK HERE
-Since our auditorium is large enough to accommodate approximately 100 people while following social distancing guidelines (with six feet between non-family members), at present we are planning to have just one Sunday AM worship service at 10:30. We are asking families to sit together.
-We will also offer a Livestream worship service in the gym (and if a third site is needed, in the WBC Community Center). The service in the gym will be a non-singing service. It will also provide a more relaxed option, if needed, for those with young children.
-When you arrive, you will be welcomed back with big smiles and heartfelt, “It’s so good to see you!” However, we are asking that everyone practice social distancing guidelines (six feet of separation, no handshaking, hugging, etc). This will also apply to our normal pre and post service greeting times, as well as in the parking lot. We are asking parents to help their children follow these social distancing guidelines.
-Exterior doors will be open where access is needed to avoid touches.
-Offering plates will not be passed during the service. There will be a drop box in the foyer for tithes and offerings.
-Our restrooms will be available. The lights will be left on, with personnel from the church spraying door knobs and handles with disinfectant as needed. Drinking fountains will not be operational during this time.
-At present, we will not distribute bulletins and sermon outlines. However, these will be available online so they can be printed in advance, if so desired.
-Hymnals, visitor cards, and other printed material have been removed from the auditorium.
-As you have probably heard by now, Scioto County has been moved back to a level 2 by Gov. Dewine. We are still being asked to wear a mask when we are in public. Though churches have been exempt from some of these guidelines, we continue to seek to follow, as best we can, the state and local leadership. We are asking that everyone over the age of 10 who attends church on Sunday to wear a mask (unless medically prohibited).
-Upon entering the building, we request that everyone wash or sanitize their hands. Hand sanitizers will be available throughout the facility.
Because of Christ,
