COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update – August 18

Dear Bethany Family,

How do I register for church services?

Each week you must contact the church directly to register yourself and your household members for services. The best way to do that is by phoning the church office at 519-745-0151, between the hours of 9am and 1pm, Monday through Wednesday, when our office staff are available. If you can’t phone between those hours, please phone and leave a message that clearly states who you are (your name) and how many people will be attending with you that Sunday.

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 questionnaire is available at this link: https://bethanyemc.ca/wp-content/uploads/Screening_Checklist_For_Entrance_2.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 your return to services starting August 2nd. View our start up video here: https://youtu.be/h97pi2GGEYI


Familiarize yourself with the “Reopening Plan Pedestrian Flow” for the church building. Knowing how to enter, to move and to exit are indicated on the visual.

 

Worship

We continue to provide online Sunday worship, even though we have returned to in person services.

Service time – 10:00am – 11:00am

The great news in this uncertain time is that God is reaching millions more people around the world who would not have stepped foot in a church. PTL as these are exciting days!

Be Encouraged – A Final Word from Pastor Anthony

Jesus is the King, Not Corona. Although the coronavirus receives its name from the many crowns it displays. It is a false king.

In listening prayer, I heard. “Remember what I have done not what the enemy is doing.” If ever there was a time to discern and apply the finished work of Christ Jesus it is now. His cross has the final word in these matters. Jesus Christ is still Lord.

In Acts 4:29-30 (NLT) “And now, O Lord, hear their threats, and give us, your servants, great boldness in preaching your word. Stretch out your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”

When the early church was threatened with extinction through persecution they “remembered” who was really the King. Not Caesar but Christ. Not Corona but Christ. As you remember Him today it will shift your focus off of Covid-19 and onto the King of kings!

Yours in His faithful hold,
Pastor A.
