"The Mission Goes On"
    Before, during, and after the pandemic, and throughout all the turmoil of our world, the fundamental mission of the church was, is, and will be the same. Get up and get going, preach Christ crucified and resurrected, and teach believers to practice the same authentic truths Jesus delivered to His first disciples. Our mission has not changed, Bethany Baptist Church - we have simply adjusted the methods in which we carry out our mission in response to the unprecedented circumstances in our world.

   On Friday night (June 5), our deacons met to make decisions about what methods to use to move forward with our mission during the month of June as we have now entered into Phase Two of opening up our Commonwealth. At this time, the rules and regulations put forth by the governor regarding religious gatherings for Phase Two (Executive Order 65) have remained virtually the same as during Phase One. We continue striving to balance the call of the Bible and our deep desire to meet together for worship while, at the same time, adhering to the state regulations currently in place and maintaining the safety and wellbeing of our members and visitors. A limited survey of church members has also been conducted and evaluated.
    After prayerful consideration, the unanimous decision of the Deacon Body was 1) to plan on holding an in-person prayer service in the fellowship hall of Bethany Baptist Church on Wednesday, June 17, at 7 PM while maintaining social distancing and observing all other regulations and best practices. 2) In the meantime, we will continue offering Wednesday and Sunday services online and through social media until 3) Sunday, July 5, which has been set as a tentative date to gather for an in-person Communion Service as regulations will allow.

    A health coordinator will also be designated who will be responsible for planning and overseeing all preparations for our place of worship to be able to safely meet for the in-person services. Although face coverings and gloves are not required, if you feel safer with those items, please bring your own. Also, by all means, keep others safe by staying home if you feel ill.

   We want you to know, Bethany Family, how grateful we are for your ongoing prayers, ministry, and financial support to our congregation. May the Lord’s goodness and mercy follow us in the days ahead as we go, share, and build up one another.
