Dear member and friend of First Baptist Church of Hays, Kansas:
The Board of Servants has decided that the church will remain closed until April 19th in response to the COVID 19 health emergency.
The decision is a difficult one, but the board reached it in response to the request of the governing authorities of our denomination, our community and the nation, and in the spirit of being a good neighbor to our home community.
The board will meet at 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 30, to review the decision.
The region has put the interim ministry program on hold indefinitely, but the search for a pastor for First Baptist Church of Hays will continue.
Six regional American Baptist Churches will stream Sunday services during the shutdown. Look for an email from First Baptist with links to the programs.
Pastor Rodger will send his sermons to the church, and they will be posted on the website and distributed by email. Links to the sermons will also be posted on the church’s Facebook page.
If you wish to continue your support of the church during this time of separation, please send your tithes and offerings to First Baptist Church, P.O. Box 766, Hays, KS 67601.
Remember also that all who come to services at First Baptist, member and non-member alike, belong to the church family, and our devotion to each other for prayer and support does not waver. Contact Pastor Rodger or any of the members of the Board of Servants.
Pastor Rodger Tyrrell
Matt Massaglia, Church Moderator
