Coronavirus Update







Update:  July 20, 2020

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


 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.  We will continue our Sunday online services indefinitely.  Please LIKE and SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube Channel (Crestview Baptist Church Lakeland), or go to our website under the MEDIA tab.




As of July 22, we are suspending our Wednesday night programs.  Stay updated here, through Facebook, and YouTube.  We are planning things for virtual Wednesdays for adults, students, and children, so check back soon.

We are living in unprecedented times. In light of us having to suspend all services and activities, we encourage you to continue to give as you can. Remember that our ministry and the work of the Lord still goes on 24/7. Remain faithful to our Lord!
There are several ways you could give.

  • Your bank's online bill payment system:  You can set up Crestview Baptist Church as a payee and your bank will send the church a check in the mail.  Your bank would be able to help you.
