2021 Annual Meeting

  • After much prayer, we, the Golden Gate Primitive Baptist Church would like to announce that, Lord willing, we will proceed with our Annual Meeting beginning on Friday morning, June 25, 2021 and concluding with Sunday morning services on June 27th.  We will have three services on Friday and two services on Saturday (morning and afternoon) and morning services on Sunday  
  • We are so thankful to announce that Elder Mark Rowell and his family from Texas have agreed to be with us for this meeting.  Elder Rowell is the pastor at Snyder Primitive Baptist Church in Snyder, Texas.
  • While things seem to be improving on the COVID front, we still have some members here, and possibly some visitors, who remain at high risk of contracting the virus for one reason or another.  As a church we are committed to the care and wellbeing of our members and all who might be inclined to worship with us. It is for this reason that for our Annual Meeting we will employ the following guidelines.  We humbly insist on your adherence to them in order that we do all that we can to protect those who are unable to protect themselves at this present time.


  • Everyone must wear a face mask at all times when indoors.  The only exception to this is for the minister who is preaching.  There is adequate distancing and air flow to minimize exposure to the congregation during preaching service.   We will have face masks available when entering the church and the lunchroom.


  • We will have hand sanitizer available at entry and exit points to the church building and the lunchroom.  
  • While there will not be a Handshake after services, the publishing of the doors of the church will remain in place at all times.‒


  • To help get the most out of our seating space, we encourage families to sit together - since no distancing is needed among a family group.  That will help us fit more people in the building while still trying to maintain the recommended distance to minimize exposure.  
  • We will have covered seating available outside for eating and fellowship.  


  • While it has been a great blessing in the past when visitors brought food or desserts, we are asking that no one does so this year.  We have a plan for food service so that the food being brought to the meeting has minimized handling.


  • We will be serving lunch and dinner on Friday as well as lunches on both Saturday and Sunday.  
  • Our members will be serving our guests so that each one will be served what they desire without needing to touch any of the serving utensils.  
  • We also plan to have individually packaged utensils for each person to further limit opportunities for contact or transmission of germs.  
  • We will have covered seating available outside for eating and fellowship.


  • If you are sick or have recently been around someone who has tested positive for the virus, please use the live stream option instead of  physically attending.  We will miss you but it will be safer for those who do attend.
  • All Worship Services will be available to be attended virtually via Zoom.com

  • We will begin our meeting with services at 10:00 AM on Friday, an afternoon service @ 2:00PM and an evening service @ 6:00 PM.  On Saturday, we will have morning services beginning at 10:00AM and afternoon services @ 2:00PM.  The meeting will conclude with Sunday morning services at 10:00 AM followed by lunch.  

Our single and steady aim is to worship God and to do so in both a responsible and loving way in which our visitors can feel welcome, comfortable, and safe.  We are so thankful for each and everyone of our brothers and sisters in Christ and ask that you please join us in prayer that this meeting will be glorifying to the Lord and encouraging to each one in attendance.  

In Christian love,

Golden Gate Primitive Baptist Church

Santa Paula Primitive Baptist Church, Annual Meeting, July 2-4

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

After prayerful consideration we, the First Primitive Baptist Church of Santa Paula, will be hosting our annual meeting to begin Friday morning, July 2nd and to conclude Sunday, July 4th.  Even with the availability of the Covid vaccine and the lower numbers statewide, we realize that some may not feel comfortable enough to attend, however, we hope that our efforts will put those that do attend at ease.  If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to contact Bro. Jeff Abernathy or Eld. Charles Clark.

In April of 2020 we suspended church services, however, we resumed on May 17th and have held services every Sunday since.  We omitted the handshake, no longer had lunch and seated ourselves in family groups.  In doing so we have safely met for the last 10 months.  In December we purchased 2 airborne/surface purifiers for the kitchen and sanctuary, and we resumed lunch once a month in February.

A few of us have attended church meetings out of state.  We felt safe and comfortable with how the meeting was conducted.  We also spoke with others from out of state as to how they have been conducting services and meals.  We hope to apply what we have seen and heard along with additional measures to assure those that attend are comfortable and feel safe.

We are so thankful for the fellowship that we enjoy in Christ and are prayerfully looking forward to this meeting.  Please pray that this meeting will be honoring to His name and will encourage His people.  Please come worship with us if you can and if you are unable to attend please remember us in prayer.

In Christian love,
Sis. Margaret Clark, Church Clerk
