Coronavirus and HBC

On Sunday, March 7, we gathered for our regular services in keeping with COVID-19 NH guidelines. One attendee at those services tested positive for the virus the following Tuesday and contacted our pastors immediately. State health officials were contacted, and they asked that the attendee directly contact those who were exposed (within 6 feet for more than 10 minutes). This step took place (and thankfully, the individual was following proper protocol). Out of caution, the midweek service was canceled, and no others at the March 7 services are known to have tested positive.

We continue to seek to comply with our state and federal guidance and mandates regarding COVID-19. Since these guidelines are for the sake of public health and not an attempt to prevent public worship, we as citizens of God’s kingdom are responsible to obey the order (Rom. 13:1-2) and seek the good of our community.

Here are some of our guidelines we seek to abide by in our in-person gatherings:

  • Please stay home if you feel ill or have a fever.

  • We recommend that elderly individuals (65 and older) and those with serious underlying health conditions use caution when deciding to worship at church.

  • Wearing a mask is required while entering and exiting the building or while moving around in the building (not while seated by family when 6' from other family units).
  • An offering box is available in the back of the assembly room, and online giving is available as well.
  • Hand sanitizer stations are available.

And here are a few of the accommodations we are seeking to make for those unable to attend in person. 

  • We have created an HBC YouTube channel to broadcast some sermons and updates.
  • Regular sermons are available as audio recordings and podcast episodes as usual. 
  • We have made online giving available. Giving is still be tax-deductible. You can also mail a check to the church (108 Rockingham Road Windham, NH 03087), and the financial secretary will record it.

We encourage children and teens to get involved in ministry at Heritage. Whether participating in Sunday School, Youth Group, or one of our many outreach opportunities, your children will find a home here.
With special groups for men, women, young adults and parents there are many ways for you to grow at Heritage Baptist. Whether at the church or in member homes, opportunities for fellowship abound.
Building Program Giving
Aside from gifts specifically designated to the Building Fund, you can also give online toward our project.
At Heritage Baptist, we take seriously the call of the Great Commission. From supporting permanent missionaries in the field to encouraging and assisting members on short-term trips, our work spreading the gospel to all the world is never done.
