Bethesda's COVID-19 Response (Updated 4/3/2020)

Hello Bethesda Family!

 

In light of the recent concerns in our community about the COVID-19 virus, we want you to know that our Church Staff at Bethesda are taking every precaution to keep our church family healthy. Bethesda WILL NOT GATHER until we are given the all clear from our community leaders, State and Federal. 


While we will not be gathering in person, we will continue to gather together online.  Our Services will continue to be live streamed here on our website and on our Church Facebook page,https://www.facebook.com/BethesdaClayton/?eid=ARDk-gLjJ8lpWU0WQNy2SiaG4sRBGNRJWtu_fv8Xp5GB2_v1DZ-EbXZ78WvMnpbeFS6v63W0xIRnOX5L.   Remember that we are also putting out discipleship material for kids and students within our Bethesda Kids and Students Facebook Groups.  We have also created a new series from our deacons providing an encouraging word and prayer called "From the Deacon's Deck", you can catch those episodes every Tuesday and Saturday on Facebook.  In addition, don't forget that all church members have access to Rightnow Media, with over 8,000 Bible Study videos, there are many ways you can continue to grow spiritually in the midst of this unusual event.


Don't forget to tune in every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the "Pastor's Porch" series.  If you have missed an episode you can always catch up on our new YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5IhUvrfpLAQlqeZMmCMO8w.

Great Commission:  Throughout history the church has been at its best when it is flexible, committed and working as a team.  While COVID-19 has people on edge and scared, we have the good news of Jesus Christ that is so much greater than this virus is scary.  Even amidst the panic there is real opportunity to reach people with the gospel.  We want to encourage you to look for new ways to love, share, and serve people like Jesus. We love you all and we are here for you. God can and will grow his kingdom through this!
