Technical Notes on the Worship Livestream: 

  • Due to a technical problem, the livestream for the December 6 service was interrupted and had to be restarted.  The second part of the service is available here
  • Recordings of the worship service are usually available on our YouTube Channel immediately after the service ends. 
  • In the event of livestream disruptions
  • On a brighter note: did you know that there are lots of ways to watch our church services and other videos on your TV?  If you have internet access and either a smart TV or other device connected to your TV (like Roku, Amazon Fire, TIVO, PC, etc.), you can use a built-in YouTube player to access our YouTube Channel – just look for First Baptist Church Bloomington.  Chatting during services will still require a separate computing or mobile device.   Call or email the church if you’d like technical support in getting this set up.


Covid Update – January 21, 2021

In light of the updated IDPH guidance for Coronavirus and gatherings:

    • In-person worship  resumed January 31 with attendance limits (max of 50 in the sanctuary and 45 in Barker Hall)  Online streaming continues.
    • The option for in-person classes, gatherings and meetings HAS resumed
    • Use of the building by outside groups for meetings will be reviewed
    • The office remains open during regular hours.
    • Updates will be communicated primarily through the eLink, website and verbal announcements.  Please call us with any questions.

Please note that we know that in the midst of improvements, there may be setbacks that require us to again make changes.  We will continue to follow IDPH guidelines in this regard.
If you or someone you know is experiencing challenges, or could use some extra care in this time, please let us know.
