Covid-19 Response


Last Updated on

FBCR is open and available!

We are also joining our neighbors from across Monroe County in prioritizing community health. For that reason we have made some temporary changes to procedures and operations.

FBCR Diaspora Times

To keep you informed and up-to-date without overwhelming your emails, the FBCR Diaspora Times has been created.  You may wish to check it regularly for new and up-to-date information when they become available.  For quick access to to the COVID-19 Response tab (dropdown) in the navigation bar at the top of the website page.

Facility Use

Updated on 3/22/20

In order to comply with community health best practices and directives passed down from the Governor’s office as of March 22 @ 8pm the FBC campus will no longer be available for meetings of any kind. We regret the difficulty this presents to many of our building use partners and wish to do whatever we can to help mitigate that stress. If we may be of assistance in helping your group transition to online or phone meetings, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Worship

We will worship in an online format at our usual time. We will not meet in person for worship until further notice. For access to online worship click here.

Pastoral Support

Pastor Brent is available! Leave a message for him at the office (585)244-2468 or email him. For time-sensitive pastoral needs contact him using the contact information in the church directory.

Pastor Brent will reserve in person meetings for emergent pastoral needs.

Congregational Care

Many among our congregation have already reached out to those among us and around who may be particularly vulnerable during this time. Please continue to check on and care for one another. Pastor Brent and the Congregational Care Team are working together to ensure that this natural response is organized and sustained. If you know of someone with particular needs, please reach out pastor Brent or a member of the team to let us know. If you would like to support the work of the Congregational Care Team and volunteer to help us stay in touch with the congregation, please let us know.

Community Response

Our Missions Committee and others within the congregation are assessing the needs of our partner organizations and the community around the church. Efforts to help will be organized as more information becomes available. If you know of needs or wish to volunteer, please let us know.

Other Church Events

All other church events have been postponed or canceled. Check back often for developing information on opportunities to gather online.

Office Business

Our staff will be working from home as much as possible, but you may still reach us at our individual email address or by leaving a message on the church phone @ (585)244-2468. We will check messages frequently and respond promptly.
