I hope that you are doing well in the midst of this ongoing COVID situation. We were able to enjoy several weeks of meeting together in person. Then we briefly stopped in-person gatherings because a few folks tested positive, including myself. I am happy to report that all those we knew of are now doing better. Our Administrative Board met on Tuesday, July 21st to discuss going back to in person worship and to start planning what the Fall might look like.
Here are the upcoming plans about meeting in person:
We continue to urge that the following precautions be taken for all in-person gatherings:
I cannot thank each of you enough for your prayers and continued financial support of the church. This has been a very difficult situation for everyone, but Bethel has been very supportive and loving as we navigate our way through this. I am thankful for each of you and thankful that we have technology that allows us to gather when we cannot do so in person. But I am most thankful for the Holy Spirit which always binds us together. Thank you for taking the words of Ephesians 4:1-6 to heart.
