Garden City Baptist Church



Friends and Family of Garden City Baptist Church,


After much prayer, research and discussion, for the safety and protection of all of our church members, visitors and our community we will be canceling church services and activities until our state government and local authorities give us permission to resume meeting together.

Romans 13:1  English Standard Version (ESV)
Submission to the Authorities
1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.

Considering the impact the spread of this virus is going to have on our community, it is our civic duty to obey our government authorities and protect as many people as possible by not being carriers or sharers of this virus. We feel this is the best course of action considering the progression of transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

Though we are not presently meeting together this does not mean we are abandoning one another. We strongly encourage 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. I (Brian) am working on some material that we will hopefully mail out and/or provide on Facebook and email for those who prefer a more guided study. 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 please mail in your tithe to the church until we can meet together again. (See church address below.)

Finally, if you have a need of any kind please remember 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 our faith and clean hands will see us through. (See contact information below.)

We'll be in touch. 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

    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.


    Garden City Baptist Church is now open for Sunday Service.  We began inside on Sunday, May 17, 2020 at 10:30 AM.  We are 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 santitized after each service in preparation of the next service. 

    If you do not wish to come to the services at this time due to the Covid 19 risks, that is understandable.  We are doing everything we can in order to make it safe for each service.  Thank you.  Hope to see you all soon.

  • Discipleship Training

    Beginning in February, Brian will start Discipleship Training on Wednesday nights at 7:00 PM  in place of Bible Study.  If you have any questions, please call Brian.

  • Cookouts scheduled for 5th Sundays for the year

    This year, every 5th Sunday (which will be in March, May, August, and November) we will plan on a cook out or Pot Luck Luncheon.  Will let you know as the days get closer.
