Update on Pastor Dave and Family

Pastor Dave and family were exposed to the Covid-19 Delta variant while on vacation in Cincinnati. Upon returning, the entire family took a Covid test on Tuesday, have been quarantining at home, and are currently awaiting the results. They all feel fine and are showing no symptoms. 

Should the tests come back negative - as expected - Pastor Dave will be back in person. Either way, the congregation will be made aware of the results as soon as they are known. Prayers appreciated!
Update on WOW

Unfortunately, WOW will need to be cancelled this week because of the aforementioned Covid-19 development with Pastor Dave. Should the tests come back negative as expected, WOW will continue for the remainder of August. 

Worship Update

Masks are required for worship and any other indoor activity at Bethel for both vaccinated and unvaccinated people.

Worship will be in Discipleship Hall where we can get better ventilation.

Worship will be more limited but will still include songs and Holy Communion. This will be our standard worship for the foreseeable future, until our county and our nation has a better grasp on the Covid-19 Delta variant.  

Throughout this pandemic, we have done the "next right thing." At this point, the next right thing is to take a step back so as best to control the environment for worship and any other activities we offer at Bethel. We pray that this will not be an extended period, but as we have been doing all along, we will faithfully follow CDC guidelines for our county, state, and nation.

Please pray for those who are currently suffering with the new variant of Covid-19 and please encourage everyone you know to get vaccinated!
