COVID-19 Update – July
Dear Bethany Family, at this time we are holding in-church worship services. These are the procedures to be followed for in-person services:
How do I register for church services?
Yes, under Stage 3 guidelines our capacity number has increased greatly…but, please continue to register!! We don’t want you to arrive and be disappointed that you will not be admitted into the service.
Everyone, except those serving as a volunteer for the day, must contact the office weekly to register. Spots are saved on a first come, first reserved basis. If we are full, we will put your name onto the list for the following Sunday.
If you are uncertain about whether or not you will be able to attend, please do not reserve a spot until you are certain.
Registrations must be received NO LATER than noon on Wednesday of the week before the service you are registering to attend.
The Covid Screening Questionnaire must be completed FOR EACH member of your household who will be attending service and brought with you to the service. To be effective, the best time to fill out the questionnaire is the morning you will be attending service and the name of the person attending service must be filled in. A copy of our family questionnaire is available at this link: https://bethanyemc.ca/wp-content/uploads/Family_Screening_checklist_for_entrance_003.pdf
A copy of our single’s questionnaire is available at this link: https://bethanyemc.ca/wp-content/uploads/Single_Screening_checklist_for_entrance_003.pdf
For those with no internet service, copies of the questionnaire will be sent with the weekly mailing. At all times, we will have copies available at the church.
Questionnaires will be kept on file for a period of time to assist with contact tracing if a church attendee tests Covid positive.
Familiarize yourself and family with what to expect as you return to services. View our start up video here: https://youtu.be/h97pi2GGEYI
Volunteers and signage will assist you with entering, flow and exiting the church building.
We will continue to provide online Sunday worship, even when we have returned to in person services.
Service time – 10:00am – 11:00am
