Updates

 

Sunday

Update:  September 13, 2020

WELCOME HOME!  SUNDAYS at 8:00 & 10:30 AM.

WE ENCOURAGE AT-RISK INDIVIDUALS AND THOSE WITH SYMPTOMS OF ILLNESS TO STAY AT HOME.

 As we have our church gatherings, people in high-risk demographics should be encouraged to not physically attend regular worship services. According to the White House plan, vulnerable individuals (the elderly and people with certain underlying medical conditions) should remain sheltered in place. We will continue to attend to these families and, if possible, make special accommodations for them.  

LIVE STREAM AVAILABLE ON SUNDAY AT 10:30 AM

We will continue our Sunday online services, now live streamed with our newly installed equipment.  Please LIKE and SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube Channel (Crestview Baptist Church Lakeland) for notifications of new content, or go to our website under the MEDIA tab.
