COVID-19 Update: Church Services and Office Hours

Dear First Baptist Church Family and Friends,

Due to the COVID 19 virus that is continuing to spread in our community and our desire to adhere to the requests from health officials to minimize the spread of the virus, we have made the decision not to hold public services at the church. However, we plan to record a service for each week until we can reopen. The services will be on available on CAT-TV a week after they have been recorded. 

The church annex, including the church office, is closed. However, you can email the office at and someone will get back to you within several days.

Unfortunately, the church is unable not provide financial assistance with bills and does not hand out vouchers. The church is part of the Greater Bennington Interfaith Services (GBICS) located at 121 Depot Street. GBICS is home to the Kitchen Cupboard, the Food and Fuel Fund, and the Bennington Free Clinic. To contact GBICS call 802-447-3700 or visit . For other services, such as rental and bill assistance, please contact BROC at 802-665-1448 or visit www.

We will be in communication with you on this issue as it develops. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. God bless you.

Sincerely in Christ,

FBC Board of Trustees
