COVID-19 Updates


To all of the members and guest of Gethsemane Baptist Church, your health and safety is our first priority. We are taking every precaution to safeguard our house of worship from the COVID-19 Virus. Our trustees are following the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) guidelines for cleaning and sanitizing building and we have installed hand sanitizing stations throughout. In addition to this, we are updating our emergency preparedness plan. Please begin preparing by subscribing to our emergency preparedness plan. Please begin preparing by subscribing to our Youtube channel, GBC TV and becoming familiar with the various methods of giving electronically. Please practice proper hand washing as recommended by the CDC. Also, if you are sick please respect others and stay home until you are well and join us on-line. Though we practice good hygine and respect for others around us, we also stand upon the Word of God, in Psalms 91:10, "There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling." Be safe and may God bless each of you.

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Riddick, Leadership and Staff
