Church family,

With the Governor's announcement yesterday, we are implementing changes in how we work to serve the church body. At this time, the church office is closed, allowing us to do our part in containing the Covid-19 virus. 


Our staff continues to work diligently from home. It is our priority to connect with you during this time. Please contact me by phone or email with any questions or concerns, steven@fbcabq.com, 214.541.4640. You may also contact Missy McElwee directly,  missy@fbcabq.com, 505.249.3508.


We will continue to provide updates and will have online service this weekend. We will communicate the best way for you to connect with the service as the week progresses.


Please take this time to connect with God as individuals and families. We are praying for you and for this time to bring us all closer to Him.


In His service, 

Pastor Steven Ball

Dear Church Family, 

We are still here for you and continually lifting you up in prayer. If we can be of any assistance, please let us know. 


Current changes:

Wednesday:

There will be no activities on Wednesdays. We will not have 10:31 Bible study or any evening activities.


Sunday: We will have on-site worship during both services. We are working to have live streaming or post service video as well.

There will be no small groups and no child care.

Worship services will be family service times.


For the sake of maintaining community during this time of social distancing, we are working to begin online Bible studies and start some fresh Facebook groups. We are always looking into additional resources to equip you for the work of the ministry.

 

I'm choosing to view this time as an opportunity for us to think outside the box, shine the Light of Christ, and unify for the Gospel. Thank you for standing with me and remaining faithful to the Lord.

 

My mobile number is 214.541.4640. Please feel free to call/text if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas.

 

Many blessings,


Pastor Steve

Senior Pastor AFBC
