BETHESDA'S COVID-19 RESPONSE (UPDATED 7/26/2020)

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.



We are going to start ReGathering this Sunday (8/2/20). There are two services, the first at 9:30 AM and the second at 11:00 AM. We will be taking quite a few precautions to make sure that everyone is safe. Here are the precautions that we are taking:

  • Hand Sanitizing Stations
  • Face Masks will be required for everyone and we will have them available
  • We will have a dedicated entrance and a dedicated exit
  • Our seating is now socially distanced in sections
  • We are asking that when you come into the sanctuary that you go to your section and not wander around.
  • We will not be passing offering plates, but we have offering boxes in the back for you to worship through giving.
  • We will be sanitizing the sanctuary, bathrooms, and common areas between the two services. 
  • We have provided an overflow area in the fellowship hall
  • All volunteers will be wearing face masks
  • No Childcare
  • No Sunday School
  • No Fellowship Time during the service
  • We have switched from a printed bulletin to an e-bulletin that can be accessed on your cellular device.

Thank you so much for all of your prayers and understanding as we diligently seek to honor the Lord.

The 9:30 AM service will be streamed live for those not in attendance.


Stay tuned for information on small groups, student groups, and our plans for July 13th and beyond.

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!

In Jesus,
