COVID-19 Statement

COVID 19 may have changed the world, but it has not changed our God. 


First Christian Church—Ponca City is facing the COVID pandemic with compassion for one another, concern for our staff, and a commitment to safety.  We have resumed in-house services on Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m.  The live-streaming and replays of previously aired services continue as well.  Those who are health-compromised or do not feel now is the time to return to in-house worship are encouraged to access these services.


The Church is following CDC guidelines regarding wearing masks, hand washing, and social distancing.  Our offices are open for all your congregational needs; however, the building remains locked to reduce foot traffic.  We are currently serving a modified Friendship Feast menu and the children have returned to Wee Care.  Small group meetings are also resuming.  We have implemented additional sanitizing procedures and added social distancing reminders.


We recognize the severity of this situation and our Council continues to monitor current local and state trends to determine when schedule or building use changes need to be made.  The following are important considerations for your safe return to the building:

  1. Masks are required to be worn when inside the building.

  2. Social distancing guidelines must be observed.

  3. No nursery or childcare services will be available.


The transmission of COVID-19 remains high and all those who enter or use our facilities are encouraged to care for others by monitoring their own behaviors.  The following are suggestions that will help us support the health and safety of all:

  1. Stay at home if you are running a temperature or exhibiting other virus symptoms.

  2. Self-quarantine if you have been exposed to the virus.

  3. If you test positive for the virus, please let the office know. 

    • We would like to hold you in prayer as you recover; and

    • We will take appropriate action to prevent the spread to others.


Remember, God does not care where we are when we praise Him and prayer has no long distance fees! 


Stay safe!
