Thanks for taking the time to find out a little more about Fairfield Presbyterian Church. We are a community of people from all walks of life and in various places in our journey with God.
Believe it or not, we have prayed for you already -- both to find your way to our web site, but also to find a church family in Pensacola that you can call home. Take a look around, investigate what we believe. Then if you're interested in knowing more, feel free contact us or just come by the church for a visit.
We would love to have you join us this Sunday. Come however you feel comfortable—we care about you, not the clothes you are wearing.

CORONA VIRUS UPDATE
March 18 Update on Fairfield Activities
As everyone is probably aware, the COVID-19 coronavirus “crisis” is a fluid situation. The latest suggested guidelines from the President and health officials for group gatherings has gone down from 50 to 10. “The President’s Coronavirus Guidelines for America” can be found here.
Your Session has prayed and discussed the matter extensively and has made some hard decisions. Here is a summary of our rationale and decisions:
- It is a Biblical injunction for Christians to assemble for public worship (Heb. 10:25) and NOT to neglect meeting together
- In this unusual and “temporary situation” we are also governed by other biblical principles to love and care for one another
- To abide by those two biblical principles and at the same time honor the request of our government officials to do all we can to halt the spread of this virus we propose the following:
- All Sunday activities will be suspended for March 22, 2020; we will monitor the situation and update for the following Sundays
- Rather than “neglecting” to meet, we will meet via online worship; instructions on how to join in will be posted on our website: www.fairfieldpca.com when all is in place (Facebook live, YouTube live are two options)
- All Midweek activities will also be suspended until further notice
The Church Office can be contacted by phone or email, but we recommend keeping the “social distancing” as has been advised by the stated guidelines above.
Please continue to pray regarding this situation, and for the health and safety of all medical personnel assisting the sick.
The words of our Lord Jesus are a good source of comfort in times like these: “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” Matthew 6:25-26
Grace to you all,
Pastor Ralph on behalf of the Session and the Diaconate
