Anyone with health concerns, or who has concerns about the health of a family member, is invited to come to one of these locations this weekend to receive testing for COVID-19. This testing will be provided at no cost to participants, and those who come for testing can remain in their vehicles throughout the process of collecting their samples.

Health department nurses and/or National Guard medics at each site will collect nasal swabs from those who want to be tested, and test results may be available within 72 hours after the samples arrive at the lab, depending on lab volume.

Information will be provided at the testing locations on what participants can expect after being tested. This information is also available online at www.tn.gov/content/dam/tn/health/documents/cedep/novel-coronavirus/TestedGuidance.pdf.

Those who wish to be tested for COVID-19 at these events should be prepared to share their contact information so health department staff members can provide their test results. Everyone who is tested will be contacted about their test results, whether they are negative or positive, and given further instructions to protect their health and the health of those around them. Anyone tested at these events should be prepared to isolate themselves at home while awaiting their test results.

TDH has had high participation in drive-through testing events. Those in line at a testing site by the announced closing time will be served if possible. Please note public restroom facilities are not available at the drive-through testing events.

Dear Fullview Family & Friends,

With the heightened awareness and public concerns regarding the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure you that public health and safety concerns are our highest priority.   Additionally, the CDC does not want to contribute to the spread of the Coronavirus which has no vaccine. So, out of an “abundance of caution,” we state the following:

The U.S. CDC is encouraging both older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions to “stay at home as much as possible.”

You can see the CDC guidelines at this link for facts concerning COVID 19.  

DAILY OPERATIONS: Unless conditions on the ground change, the church office remains open Monday-Friday for daily operations, business, and ministry with a greater sense of cleanliness since this virus is said to live longer on solid surfaces. We are also encouraging social distancing.

WEEKEND WORSHIP: We will maintain our normal weekly worship schedule and encourage all members and friends to do what is best for themselves and the health of their families. If you are in a vulnerable group (see CDC link above) susceptible to this virus or have been traveling overseas, we encourage you and your family not to attend church but fellowship with us online via the Livestream.

LIVESTREAMING @ https://fullviewbaptist.org/index.php/watch-online/

As we do every Sunday, we will Livestream our worship service online for those who must stay at home.

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” – 2 Timothy 1:17.

HANDSHAKES & HUGS:   Our team encourages you to wash your hands frequently and to limit simple actions such as shaking hands.  Also, if you or your children have fevers, chills, or feelings of sickness, please stay home.

HEALTH & SAFETY MEASURES: All Fullview facilities are intentionally cleaned to provide a sanitary and safe environment for members and guests to fellowship and worship God. Our team has discussed and implemented processes to enhance already-thorough cleaning procedures. This includes a comprehensive daily cleaning of all restrooms and various touch points including, but not limited to, doorknobs and handles, faucets, and hand railings.  In addition, our facilities staff continually cleans throughout and after services. Classrooms are in the process of being disinfected. We encourage everyone to follow the directions being distributed by healthcare providers by washing your hands with warm soapy water for at least 20 seconds.

. . . having cast all your anxiety upon Him, because He is concerned about you. – 1 Peter 5:7
“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” – Psalms 56:3    

BULLETINS: Bulletins will be laid out on tables for you to pick up as you enter the worship area of the Main Sanctuary.

COMMUNION: Our deacons will continue to lead us in communion.
OFFERING:  You may give your offering ONLINE at https://fullviewbaptist.org/index.php/online-giving/.

God the Father has given us the freedom to make choices for health and hospitality for our church family and beyond. In this time of heightened awareness and anxiety here at home and across the globe, Jesus’ followers are called to remember that HE is sovereign over all things and to pray for the health and well-being of all our fellow human beings. In the meantime, let’s relax and plan to worship HIM, through this crisis.
