In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bethesda assembled a task force comprised of church leaders, staff and health care professionals to address the reopening of our church. With safety the primary focus, this team put together a plan that allows us to worship in person while adhering to guidelines set forth by our Bishop and Governor.
Instead of two services, we currently have an Outdoor Service at 9am every Sunday morning in our lower parking lot. Ushers will assist in socially distanced seating. Please bring a chair if you have one and even though it is safer outside than inside, we encourage you to wear a mask, especially moving from your car to where you will sit since there is a chance of coming closer to six feet with others. We will continue to have a live stream service at 10:30am on our Facebook page at http://facebook.com/bethesdaumcpowdersville .
As with most things amidst this situation, many of our programs are simply ‘on hold’. Several of our Sunday School classes and Bible Studies are meeting online. Please call the church office to get more information or see the Calendar section or current Newsletter under the Announcements tab.
