Service Update 7-2-20!!!


Dear church family,

After much prayer, WBC has devised a plan for “re-opening” Wade Baptist Church following the Coronavirus pandemic. Though we are still in the midst of the pandemic, we believe that the following guidelines will help us give our church family options for worship in the weeks ahead. We know that some are ready to return to in-person church services and others are not, so we will still be providing online services at 11:00 am on Sundays and our interactive Wednesday service online at 6:30 pm. We encourage each of you to do what you feel is best for your family. Your safety is very important to us!

Beginning June, 7, 2020, we will have 3 family services at our Wade campus: 8:30 am, 9:45 am and 11:00 am; and 2 family services at our Bridge campus: 9:30 am and 11:00 am (NO nursery, children’s, youth or on-campus Community Groups or activities at this time at either campus). It is recommended that anyone who considers themselves as vulnerable attend the earliest service because that will be when the worship area will be at its cleanest. If you do not attend the first service, please stay in your car until the ushers/greeters have signaled you to come in so that we can avoid crowding at the entrances/exits before/after services.

We will social distance those attending by spacing rows and asking that there be 3 empty seats between different families on the same row. Ushers and greeters will wear masks and gloves and will have appropriate entrance/exit doors propped open. They will also help direct people to available seating.

For the invitation time at the end of each service, pastors will be in another room to counsel and pray with those who make decisions or need prayer. Ushers will be available to connect them with a pastor.

For further protection from the spread of germs, we will have ushers/greeters at each exit at the end of services to collect the offering.

Also, at the end of each service, Pastor will dismiss each section. If you do not feel comfortable exiting with the group, please stay seated until all sections have exited and then you may exit.

We will have a “connect table” available in the foyer with prayer cards, giving envelopes, pens, etc.

For your safety upon returning to WBC, we will have hand sanitizer in prominent locations and extra soap in restrooms. Masks and gloves are encouraged for those attending services. Please remember to social distance, wash your hands, avoid touching your face, and to sneeze/cough inside of your elbow while you are here. If you feel sick, please stay at home. We also ask that you do not congregate inside the building, handshake or hug others while you are here.

We will continue to monitor the pandemic guidelines and recommendations and will change our plan accordingly, if needed. Additional resources: or

We are excited to be getting back to worship with our church family. We have been praying for you and will continue to do so. Remember, your safety is our utmost concern so we will look forward to seeing you when you feel comfortable doing so. WBC loves you!

The Bridge is a campus of Wade Baptist Church
found  in the Rocky Creek Community of Lucedale. Like
Wade Baptist, we are a community of Christ followers
who make disciples. We seek to fulfill our
mission statement by loving God, loving others,
and serving the world! We are praying a few
very specific prayers at this time and would ask you
to do the same. We are praying for the favor of God
to be upon this campus, and that God will give us
open doors of ministry in the community. We are also
praying for God to begin to reveal people He
desires to be involved in this work. We are very
excited to see where God will be leading us.
To God be the Glory!!!
