HOW WE’RE STAYING SAFE



Our Bethel pastors and staff are committed to providing a safe place for you and your family to worship. Here are some of the things we’re doing at our in-person worship services to keep you safe:


Social Distancing

We’ve limited the seating capacity in our sanctuary so that we can follow social distancing guidelines. As part of that, we ask that you pre-register for in-person services.


After you register, you’ll receive an email confirmation with a QR code. This QR code will be your entrance into the service, so be prepared to show it on your phone or print it and bring it with you. Also, please make sure only one person from your family registers to avoid duplicates.

When you arrive, you’ll be asked if you want a green sticker or a red sticker with a smiley face on it. The green sticker indicates that you are comfortable with a handshake, fist bump, or hug, while the red sticker means that you would feel more comfortable maintaining a six-foot distance from others. Please take notice of the stickers that people have selected before you greet them.

During the worship service, individuals living in the same home will be seated together but will be socially distanced from other individuals or households.


Masks

We require that everyone would bring and wear a mask while in the building. During the worship service, our worship team and pastoral staff may remove their masks while on the stage, but they will continue to maintain a six-foot distance from one another. We kindly ask that you keep your mask on for the duration of the service.


Health Screening

Before you enter the building, you’ll be asked to show the QR code you received when you registered. At that time, our greeters will also check your temperature and ask you to answer these questions:

  1. Have you or has someone you live with been in close contact with a confirmed case of Covid-19 in the past 14 days?
  2. Have you had a fever in the last 24 hours?
  3. Have you had loss of taste or smell in the last 24 hours?

Children’s Ministry

Our children’s ministry, bKids, is open, but with limited classrooms and capacity. You do not need to pre-register your child, but it is on a first-come-first-serve basis. For more information on which classrooms will be available this week, email jodie.almaguer@bethelworld.org.


Cleaning

Before the service, we’ll treat our facilities with a disinfectant solution proven to kill SARS-Cov 2, the virus responsible for COVID-19. We’ll also sanitize and disinfect all heavy-traffic and high-touch areas during and between services, including restrooms, handrails, door handles, light switches, sanctuary seating, etc.

We know that worshipping with a mask can be uncomfortable, and social distancing from friends can be frustrating. But we’re so thankful for the opportunity we have to worship together in person. Thank you for helping us make this a safe environment for everyone!

COVID-19 FINANCIAL HELP


As we face the realities of the COVID-19 crisis, we desire to steward well the resources that have been entrusted to us so that we might reach a city to touch the world. We realize that this health crisis is also causing a financial crisis for many, and we want to be a blessing to those in need.

For that reason, we’re raising funds to help people affected by COVID-19 by assisting church members who need help in meeting food, household, and personal hygiene needs.

Please consider the Lord’s guidance as to what you might do to help meet other families’ basic needs. And if you and your family need assistance, please let us know.

Testimonial Video




Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

Hebrews 10:23–25
