How can I volunteer for IF?

We would love to have help! Please indicate your interest in the registration form.

What will I miss if I watch from home?

All of the worship and teaching will come through the IF:Gathering livestream. At-home participants will not see what is happening in the Sanctuary before and between sessions but will be able to stay connected through the FBC Group Chat Room on our Group site.

What are the safety procedures?

We have plenty of room in our sanctuary for ladies to spread out and feel comfortable during the conference.  Our facilities will be thoroughly cleaned before IF begins each day and hand sanitizer stations are located all over the building.  We ask for your cooperation with the following First Baptist Safety Protocols.

Personal Responsibility: Anyone testing positive, showing symptoms of COVID-19, or who has been exposed to the virus should not attend until cleared by medical officials or allowed to be around others according to public health regulations.

Temperature Checks: Upon entry to the church, volunteers and staff will conduct temperature checks with touchless monitors at all building entrances. Anyone registering a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher will be asked to return home and monitor your health.

Masks: Everyone is required to wear a mask upon entry, exit and while moving around the church building. We strongly encourage people to wear masks during the service, especially while singing. There will be masks available at entrances for those who forget or do not have a mask. 

Seating: Pews will be marked for seating in order to ensure social distancing. Those who arrive at the church in the same vehicle or are from the same household or group may sit together on the ends of available pews. The center portion of the pew sections will be blocked to better organize our seating.

IF: Gathering exists to equip women with gospel-centered resources, events and community so they may learn more about who God is and disciple other women right where they are. The annual conference is streamed all over the world and we will host it here in our Sanctuary.

God is on the move. His kingdom is coming. We want His will to be done on this earth as it is in heaven and our heart and prayer is that “on earth as it is in heaven” starts with us. And we would stop wondering if it is possible to change the world. It’s possible. This year, at IF:Gathering 2021, we are going to talk about how we do that. The theme of those two days is going to be “Even If.” Even if the worst happens, we won’t lose hope. Come join us as we remember that together.
