As per the most recent decision made by our Deacons, we resumed in-person gatherings on Sunday July 5, 2020. These gatherings are happening in addition to our continued online gatherings. You can join us on Sundays in our buildings or via our website at bensonbaptist.org/livestream.
We will have one worship service at 10:00 A.M. which will follow a rotating style (contemporary one week, traditional the next). Seating will be available in our Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall with social distancing in place. Details on how this will work, as well as the full guidelines from our Returning Team, can be found here.
Our Deacons will continue to gather every two weeks to review this plan and make any neccesary adjustements.
We are thankful for our Returning Team that has drafted guidelines to keep everyone safe and well as we return to physical gatherings. The members of that team are:
Michael Adams, William Massengill, Windy Asbill, Morgan Moore, Brian Naig, Millie Johnson, Lawrence Powers, Todd Johnson, and Michael Lasater-Sizemore.
Our Church Offices:
Our church office is open for normal office hours (8:30am-3:30pm, Monday-Friday). If you need something from a staff member, and it does not warrant a visit to the church office, please call us at 919-894-4777.
If you do need to come to the church office, please ring the doorbell located outside of the Main Office door (closest to Debbie’s office). Someone will buzz you in to the foyer outside of Debbie’s office. There are bins for donations inside that space. Communication with Debbie will take place through the window to her office that is located in the foyer. Please do this even if you have a key to the building.
For the safety and wellness of our staff, at this time, please do not enter the staff offices without an appointment.
If you are sick, we ask that you DO NOT visit the church offices. Please call or email us instead. You can find staff emails on our staff page.
