Bethesda Update – May 18, 2020

ANNOUNCEMENTS Communication during these days of uncertainty is very important. If you have not yet signed up for Bethesda’s eNews emails, please do so. You can sign up on the Church’s website, call the office, or let Pastor Angela know and you’ll be added.

Worship Going Forward  For the foreseeable further, Bethesda will continue to worship via the Zoom platform (Sunday school at 9:30AM, Worship at 10:00AM). There will be tweaks and changes as we learn how to best mange the system.  If you had any struggles with the Zoom platform and need assistance, please let me know. I’d be happy to see what I can do to make sure you’re able to connect and login. We had folks use landlines and cell phones to call in without the video service as well. I’m grateful for this platform’s flexibility!

Starting May 15 the church office will be closed on Fridays.

Virtual Bible Study Wednesdays at 10:00 AM.  Contact the office or watch your email for Zoom login information.

Reminder to Continue to Give While we do not have worship in person, our shared ministry continues. We recognize that not having worship in person may have a negative impact on our congregational giving. We urge you to please continue to give and support our shared ministries. Thank you for your faithfulness.

  • You can mail a check
  • You can have your bank send a check from your account via online billing or by calling your local branch.
  • You can easily sign up for online automatic giving through Tithe.ly our online giving portal
    • If you need help or advice about online giving, please let Pastor Angela know.

Devotional Resource during a Pandemic continues to be a life-giving and meaningful tool for my personal reflection. I’ve shared it via email before, but offering it again here for you. You can download it HERE or let the church office know you’d like a hard copy mailed to you. We’d be happy to do so.

Sermons & Sunday scripture are available on Bethesda’s website for your reflection and prayer. Additional materials are being emailed and/or mailed out to members.

Assistance needed? If you or someone you know needs assistance of any kind or even a listening ear during this time of community lock-down, please reach out to the church office or Pastor Angela directly.
