The First Church of the Open Bible
Greetings First Church Family.
We pray that you and your entire household are safe and well.
I want to remind you to hold on to God’s Promise in this time from Deut. 20:4 “For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.”
We want to update you on the steps we have taken to fully comply with the recent instructions that have been made by our government led by the Hon. Dr. Keith Rowley:
- There will be no physical gatherings at our church’s compound. Therefore, until further notice, we will be cancelling all Sunday and Weekday Services and ministry activities such as Men’s Prayer Group, Youth Meeting and Women’s Prayer Group.
- All Ministry classes and groups (including Clusters) will also be postponed.
- In lieu of physical meetings in church and at homes, we will be implementing an online forum to facilitate daily devotions, prayer and bible study.
- The church will be open from 7:00 am – 5:00 pm daily.
- Special care and attention will be provided to our elderly and the vulnerable as needed.
- Alternative options are provided for giving. Feel free to contact our accounts department at 657-8587 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and guidelines.
The pastoral staff and ministry team leaders remain available for prayer/support, counselling and home visits throughout the duration of this crisis.

“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith.” – Faith is always in style
Psalm 91:9-10 New King James Version (NKJV)
9 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
God bless you richly.
