Welcome to Double Springs Baptist Church
Where Faith & Family Connect
Dear Double Springs Baptist Church Family and Friends,
We are so blessed to be able to announce that our Preschool, Children, Student, and Adult Bible study ministries will resume beginning Sunday, May 2nd. We realize that the COVID-19 Virus threat is still very real. However, with a large number of our folks having been vaccinated, and continued safety precautions being practiced, we feel we can gather together again with minimal risks.
As we do so, we would ask you to do a few things. First of all pray! Pray for God to protect us and pray that He will help us reach our community with the Gospel. Secondly, please plan to be present for Sunday School on May 2nd at 9:30 and encourage everyone you know to come and be a part of our Bible Study groups. Thirdly, we are asking you to help us practice every precaution we possibly can. Below are the safety protocols for each age division. We recognize that these protocols will seem extreme to some and not stringent enough for others. However, your Leadership Team feels that they are reasonable and we are prayerfully asking everyone to abide by them.
If you have any questions regarding the protocol below please feel free to call any member of our Double Springs Baptist Church Leadership Team.
