To our Bethesda UMC Family,
We have been made aware of new positive cases of COVID-19 in our congregation, and these persons attended in-person worship last Sunday, December 13. Contact tracing was completed, and close contacts were notified to quarantine according to CDC and UMC guidelines.
After consultation with our District Superintendent, we will move our in-person worship service at 10:30am to online only for tomorrow, Sunday, December 20. All planned events for this Sunday, including Sunday School and youth activities, are canceled. By closing tomorrow, we will be able to reopen in- person worship for Christmas Eve services as originally planned at 5:00 and 6:30pm.
Please remember that if you test positive or are a close contact to someone who tests positive, per the UMC guidelines, you must quarantine from church activities for 14 days or until a negative test result is available.
Thank you for understanding and helping our congregation to stay healthy during these difficult times.
