We know it’s not the same as worshipping in person but we are so thankful we are able to share our services and other videos digitally to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our latest videos can be seen below! For more of our recent Bible studies and services please visit our YouTube channel by clicking here.
Sunday Service & Midweek Content
Welcome to our website! Plan A Visit!
Although we haven’t quite reached, “normal,” we are excited to slowly reintroduce some of our weekly services. Below you will find what we are currently offering in socially distant settings for Fall 2020. For more information on where to find your class or childcare, please see the map at the bottom! Keep scrolling for our most recent video content and a break down of how we’re handling COVID-19.
Kids & Student Sunday School:
During our Sunday School hour there is childcare offered for all ages from nursery (Rooms 200 & 202) through senior high. We are offering our pre-k class (201), our 1st-3rd grade (208) class, our 4th-6th grade class (205), and our student ministry classes (207) all in their normal locations beginning at 9:45AM.
Adult Sunday School:
We currently have three adult classes meeting at 9:45AM: our ladies class meets in the Family Life Center classroom connected to our kitchen, our men class meet in the choir room which has been rearranged to fit their class, and our common ground class meets at the end of the office wing (Room 100).
Senior Adult Sunday School:
While there is no specific age group in mind, our senior citizen classes are meeting in the Family Life Center in the form of a, “master class,” for the foreseeable future to allow them to space and social distance to their liking.
11AM Children’s Church & Nursery:
We do have a nursery available during our 11AM worship service (Rooms 200 & 202) but we are currently only offering a children’s church for our Prek-Kindergartens (Room 201) due to limited workers. We will continue to examine the need to expand to an older children’s church throughout the semester as our crowd continues to return!
Student Worship Services:
We are currently offering a student worship service for ages 6th-12th grade on Sunday Evening’s at 5:45PM in the youth room upstairs (Room 207).
What is your church doing to stop the spread during worship services?
We currently are practicing social distancing at all times and at all events, indoor or outdoor. We are blessed with several spacious options to host gatherings and classes. Masks are encouraged but not required unless 6ft distancing is not possible. Here you will find some of the efforts we are making to responsibly worship in person: there are sanitizing stations at each main entry and there is no passed offering plate (drop in, mail in, or online giving all available), we are requesting that only families and close friends sit together and we are staggering our exit by section to reduce crowding in doorways.
What are you recommending members do if they are exposed or have symptoms?
Quite simply we are following the CDC recommended guidelines for religious institutions and non-profits. A thorough explanation of those recommendations can be found at this link: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/faith-based.html.
If you are in quarantine and cannot go to school or work, we ask that you have the same approach to attending our in person services. We have readily made everything available online and while we know it isn’t the same, it will help bridge the gap until your 14 day waiting period is complete.
What happens if I attend a service and get sick?
Thanks to the GA Senate Bill 359, our church is not responsible for the spread of the virus on our facilities as we are doing our very best to practice all CDC recommended guidelines from hand washing, mask encouragement, sanitizing, social distancing, deep cleaning, etc. If you join us for worship you assume the risks associated with common infection and germ spread. We have signs posted at our main entry points. For a more thorough explanation of how this bill pertains to churches you can visit: https://christianindex.org/new-law-protects-churches-covid-19-liability/
Your giving allows us to acquire the tools to further our mission of advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ through training, missions and outreach, and benevolence while pouring into the local community. All gifts are confidential, tax deductible, and managed in a way that honors the gift and the giver as we seek to further the Kingdom of God.
You are able to give the following ways: in worship service through a traditional offering time, via bill pay through your financial institution, by mailing your gift to PO Box 318 Colbert, GA 30628 (payable to Colbert First Baptist Church) and online by following the link below.

Missions & Outreach
At Colbert Baptist we are Christ centered and family focused but we are also mission minded. We have a missions team who volunteers countless hours to pray over, plan and prepare for all kinds of community outreach and fellowship. In the video below you’ll hear from four of our team leaders and our Missions Director as they explain the following: what ministry or para-church organization they oversee/coordinate, how often this ministry/outreach occurs, and how you can help. After watching the video be be sure to keep scrolling and check out the direct links to these ministries so you can be informed about their goals, visions, and stances. Each of the ministries featured in this video still actively served through the shutdown concerning COVID-19 in modified manners. Where there’s a will, there’s a way! We ask that you prayerfully consider joining in with one of these ministries by way of prayer, giving, or physical involvement. There is also an image for our school supply drive that kicks off this Sunday (7/12) and runs through the end of July!
