Offerings and Tithes This Week:
For the next few weeks, when we aren’t passing the plate in service, we will need to pay attention and plan ahead to give our tithes and offerings in an alternate fashion.
We have two options:
– By Mail: sending checks to “First Baptist Church Corvallis”, 125 NW 10th, Corvallis, OR 97330

– Offering plates in church building by the office for those in-person


This Sunday is Promotion Sunday:
We are celebrating children and youth who are moving up to the next class level today.  Promotion certificates will be mailed out to the children who are moving up.  We are also recognizing the teachers and volunteers who served faithfully this last school year in Children’s Ministry.  We have wonderful teachers & volunteers that really make Sunday mornings special for the children of FBC. Check out the flyer!: Promotion Sunday 2020

Meal Train for Baby Vogt:

Congrats to Rachel and Matt Vogt on the birth of their baby boy Adley Matthew Vogt. We would like to bless them by providing meals. You are welcome to either make a home cooked meal or to purchase take out food from a restaurant and deliver it. They would prefer just 1 or 2 visitors at a time and masks. Thank you for helping Rachel and Matt! https://mealtrain.com/q45rdr


Daily Breads:

Daily Bread booklets for June/July/August are available at the church. If you would like one, there are a few ways to get one:

  1. Come pick one up from the office during office hours (T-F 9:00 – 12:00 and 1:00 – 4:00)
  2. Call the church office and request one be sent via mail
  3. Call the church office and request one be delivered to you. Mary Ellen Wernow is willing to deliver some.


Plan ahead to use the church building for your meeting or ministry:

With the announcement recently about FBC building reopening, we in the church office wanted to be sure to communicate clearly with regard to building use. We are taking this time to start over our building use calendar. What this means for you is that nothing is assumed; If you previously had an ongoing/one-time meeting in the building, we ask that you re-confirm with Brooke Staples that your meeting is a go. It will be very important to coordinate between us and meeting leaders on all the new details associated with opening. Email is the best method to get hold of Brooke at  email hidden; JavaScript is required. Thank you for your understanding in this time.


FBC Previous Meeting Minutes:

Minutes from previous Congregational Meetings and Special Congregational Meetings, including the Special Meeting from this past Sunday, 4.26.20, can now be found on our website via this link here. If you missed a meeting and want to catch up on what was discussed, you can find minutes from the last two years on this page. This page can only be accessed via this link.


FBC Directory:

In this time, If you wish to call someone and do not have their number, you can look for them on the FBC Online Directory, https://fbccorvallis.org/directory/  (username: fbc123, Password: fbc123). Can’t find who you are looking for? Email email hidden; JavaScript is required or call Brooke Staples (phone number in the online directory!).
