Re-Gathering Update – Beginning Sunday, Sept. 20

Please note that this service will be a hybrid format, with the service primarily being projected on to the screen in the choir loft, though a few in-person elements will also be incorporated. We will also continue live streaming on Facebook, our website, and the Winter Park App as we have throughout the pandemic.

Laslty, we are making preparations for a multi-phase Re-Gathering of Winter Park Baptist Church in accordance with the guidelines and wisdom offered by local, state, and national healthcare professionals. Additional information will be released as details are finalized.

Schedule for Steeple Removal – Sept. 21 – 25

As the date for the steeple removal draws near, we wish to inform you of what to expect and how to help the process go as smoothly and safely as possible. Countless hours of surveying, engineering, praying, and restless nights have brought us to this point.

There will be a considerable amount of equipment in the parking lot, and in consideration of that, the following restrictions must be observed to avoid interfering with the efficiency and safety of the operations:

  • The church side parking lot on Park Ave will be closed to all vehicles and personnel who are not essential to the work.
  • The drive-around from Wrightsville Ave will be blocked off.
  • Activities in the Central Building or the Pre-School building should not be scheduled for the week of Sept 21- 25.
  • At those times when steeple sections are being detached and lifted, the above two buildings as well as the Sanctuary will be cleared of all personnel.

If you wish to watch the removal process, you may park and remain in the lot immediately south of Park Ave. Additionally, we are also working on a live stream option from the existing webcams. More info will be available on this option soon.

This a time for the congregation to come together and concentrate on praying for safety and success in the near term, as well as for discernment about God’s plan when this period is behind us. Please continue to offer your support and hold us in your prayers throughout the coming weeks.

Map of Restricted Areas – Sept. 21- 25

For simplicity and clarification, we’ve included two aerial images below of Winter Park’s campus that indicate the aforementioned areas. The first image contains labels of each space by which to orient yourself, and the second image identifies the restrictions mentioned above.
