The Session met tonight and made the following decisions regarding activities and services at Bethany ARP Church. This was very hard, and difficult, but with much prayer and seeking the Lord's mercy and wisdom we believe this best serves our people and is obedient to the will of God.
These will be effective immediately and will be true through Sunday evening, April 5th:
1) All youth events are canceled.
2) Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting and Youth Group will not meet.
3) Sabbath School classes will not meet. However, Rev. Glaser will work with the children's teachers to provide packets using the current curriculum for the kids to use on Sunday.
4) The Lord's Supper scheduled for April 12th is postponed.
5) Sunday morning worship will continue to meet as scheduled. We strongly encourage our mature saints and those with health difficulties to stay home. There will be no choir/anthem and no children's lesson. Offering will be received before and after the service in the plates placed by the doors. We will continue to leave out hand sanitizer stations. We will also continue to livestream the service, and will continue to explore options for that.
Likewise on the offering front we encourage those not in attendance to mail their offering to the church.
Sunday worship will be looked at every week and may change.
If you have any questions please let Rev. Glaser know.
We rest and trust in the peace of Jesus Christ, His sovereign hand, and the glory of our great and awesome God.
By His Grace,
The Livestream for worship will be at 11:00am and can be found here:
