COVID19 Update 
COVID19 Church Announcement – May 15, 2021
Dear Bethany Family and Friends: as of yesterday (May 14), the Commonwealth of Virginia has lifted its universal mask mandate to follow the new guidance from the CDC. This means that fully vaccinated individuals are no longer required to wear masks in most indoor settings. Those, however, who are unvaccinated or not fully-vaccinated are still strongly encouraged to wear masks in all settings.
Therefore, starting tomorrow, May 16, we will continue with our past practices observed during Sunday School and Worship time EXCEPT we will no longer require face covering for those fully vaccinated. We will continue to observe physical distancing to the best of our abilities until May 28, when all distancing and capacity restrictions will be eased in our state. “This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
May Changes, 2021
Following our recent Deacons’ meeting, there are two major changes that the leadership of Bethany Baptist church would like to implement starting on May 2, 2021. Worship Service Location Change The first change will come about in changing the LOCATION of our worship service. Beginning with the first Sunday of May, we will move back into the sanctuary as our primary place of worship on Sunday mornings and the fellowship hall will serve as our overflow space. The format and the length of our morning worship service will remain the same as is conducted presently. Sunday School Classes to Restart The second change will take place in regard to our Sunday School classes for all ages starting back on Sunday, May 2. Due to the mandatory COVID19 regulations which are still in place in the State of Virginia, each class will be assigned a meeting room which may or may not be their regular meeting place under normal circumstances. The goal is to be able to fellowship as a group while maintaining physical distancing which depends on the number of members in attendance. Classes will begin at 10:15AM and end at 10:45AM.

Throughout these changes, we will strive to observe the regulations for: 1) face covering for all in attendance above the age of 5 and over, 2) maintaining physical distancing between parties, and 3) cleaning of surfaces between gatherings. As these changes take place, we would welcome any questions or feedback as we will monitor these events and make needed adjustments from week to week throughout the month of May. We are grateful for your continued support, suggestions, and prayers for our leadership and church family here at Bethany Baptist Church.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Chris Jett (804-761-8489) or Richard Williams (703-966-2284). 
Please invite friends and family to like and join our Bethany Baptist Church Facebook page for mid-week devotionals and Sunday worship service recordings which are posted each Wednesday and Sunday. Please feel free to share any of the posts with others.
As we transition back to our main sanctuary, we continue to live out our calling as people of God in our Northern Neck community and beyond.
