Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update 

(Latest Update: November 17, 2020)

We are closely monitoring the Coronavirus outbreak and being advised by a task force of local doctors including an infectious disease expert along with corporate executives in Northwest Arkansas.  We will provide updates for our church ministry and services on this website.  

We do not respond to COVID-19 with fear, but with an acute awareness of the importance of prevention. As Christ-followers, we should not fear, pray for healing, look for God’s greatness, share the gospel with urgency, and love our neighbors with responsible practices.

Check out this Midweek Update from Pastor Wade.

Would you like to help? Do you need help?

One of the best ways we can continue being the hands and feet of Jesus in our communities is by serving those in need. If you feel ill, are immunocompromised, or are at high-risk for COVID-19, please take care of yourself and let others be an aid to you!

This is both a tremendous season of need and ministry within our church and community. Please commit to praying throughout this time. Although we are not meeting in person, the mission of our church is just as important as ever! Please also commit to giving to continue fulfilling our mission of making disciples of all the nations.

Our Community Outreach Ministries are still open and active. Our Food Pantry and Community meal will be adjusting to a grab'n'go method to provide service to those in need while limiting contact for the potential spread of COVID-19. 

LIFE Group Resources

Update from our Missions Office:

(Updated 6.29.20) At this time, we have canceled all remaining mission trips for 2020. We are doing everything we can to monitor the situation regarding COVID-19 and will assess the possibility of trips in 2021 as it gets closer. Follow our blog at www.gofbr.org for more information on Missions at First Baptist Rogers. You may contact our missions office at if you have any specific questions.

What precautions can people take?

If you are sick, please stay home.  The coronavirus is a respiratory disease that typically manifests itself with fever, cough, and shortness of breath.  The symptoms can be mild to severe.  People with respiratory problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart problems are more likely to develop serious illness.  While most people recover without special treatment, we “love our brother” by taking precautions to prevent the infection of people who are at higher risk of serious illness.  In the event that you need to stay home, you may watch our services live on our website on Sundays, or on our Facebook page.  You can also give online as your regular act of worship in giving.  You can also watch a delayed broadcast of our worship service on our local NBC television station KNWA.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.  Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze.
  • Disinfect surfaces and objects regularly.

What precautions is FBCR taking to make FBCR gatherings and facilities as safe as possible?

  • Wiping down all common area touchpoints throughout the day.
  • Keeping hand sanitizers throughout the building.
  • Deep cleaning common areas.
  • Our door greeters will not pass out bulletins.  You may pick a bulletin up yourself at the doors.
  • Our greeters will wave instead of shake hands.  We will encourage alternate methods of greeting rather than handshakes and hugs.
  • We will place hand sanitizers at check-in stations and ask people to use hand sanitizer before and after using the computer.
  • We will continue providing our coffee stations.  Please use hand sanitizer provided at each station prior to getting your coffee.

What should we be doing as Christ-followers?
