All kids and the parent designated for drop-off/pick-up will be subject to a temperature check before entering the children’s wing.  If you or your child have a temperature of 100 degrees or higher, we will ask that you not enter to ensure the safety of other FBC kids and volunteers.
  • If you are immune compromised or at risk, we encourage you to stay home and worship with us online.
