Friends and Family of Garden City Baptist Church,

There has been a change to our state COVID restrictions and guidelines. Because of this we are updating our policy as of 11/13/2020.

The new restrictions call for no more than 25 people in a public gatherings. Churches are exempt from this restristion.

As a smaller congregation I believe we can honor both God and man by continuing to meet inside with COVID safety measures in place. We will again space out every other pew for seating, and if you are able, we ask that you wear a mask.

Take the safety measures you deem necessary to keep you and your loved ones safe. We are also considering other ways to broadcast our worship service. We ask for your prayers and patience as we figure this out. We also ask God's protection on our church, our community, our state, our country and the world as this virus continues to challenge our health and our lives.

Stay safe church family. Be prayerful.

In Christ' Love,


We are now open and practicing the CDC instructions:  wearing masks, using hand sanitizers, and staying at least six feet apart from each other.  The door handles and pews are sanitized after each service in preparation for the next service.  We feel this is the best course of action considering the progression of transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

We also strongly urge you to email or call your brothers and sisters in Christ.  Check on one another.  Pray with one another and encourage one another.  Share what you've read in your daily devotions.  Find music to worship our Lord with.  If you have a Bible in your home, you have access to all the spiritual food you need.  We encourage you to pray first, then feed on God's Word.

Because our church operates on your financial support, if you are able, we ask that you continue to support the church by giving of your tithes.  If you cannot come to church, please mail in your tithes.

Finally, if you have a need of any kind, please remember that we are a church family and we help each other.  Please let us know if you need assistance, groceries, medications, toilet paper, or a Scrabble game.  These are certainly unchartered waters for most of us, but there is no doubt that our faith and clean hands will see us through.

We love you all.  God bless you.  Pray for us as we pray for you.

In Christ's Saving Love,

Bro. Brian Willard and Bro.John Sweeney

    Each Saturday, the Property Committee goes through the portions of the church that are being utilized for worship service, sunday schools, meetings, and Bible Study groups, using a fogger machine and disinfectant that was purchased specifically for this purpose.

    Garden City Baptist Church wants everyone to know that we are doing everything in our power to keep the church free of the COVID Germs!

    The COVID cases of church members were not obtained in the church, nor has anyone caught COVID while attending our church.  We will continue to disinfect, wear masks, and use hand sanitizers while worshipping.

    We welcome you all back to church at your discretion.  Thank you for continuing to worship during this pandemic.

    Thank you and stay safe.


    John's Tuesday Morning Bible Study is being held every Tuesday morning at 10:00 AM in the Fellowship Hall.  The class has grown to 20 members.  Join us on Tuesday mornings for coffee and an inspiring Bible Lesson with discussions and fellowship.  If you have any questions, please contact John.


    We are not currently having choir practice; however, we hope to start it back up soon.  If you are interested in singing in the choir or singing a special music selection, please get in touch with the church office at (540) 427-0131 between 9 am and 1 pm, Monday through Friday.  You may also leave a message on the voice mail.  Thank you.
