All FBCG facilities are currently closed to everyone.
As the First Baptist Church of Glenarden closely monitors the progress of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) throughout our nation and region, we are taking steps to prepare for any potential impact. We are praying for those who may be affected by the virus and for God’s protection over us all. Please partner with us in this prayer as well as in taking practical measures to mitigate the spread of the virus.
For updates on our operating status, please visit this page regularly or call our Coronavirus hotline at 301-386-0301.
