Covid-19 Re-Opening Information

Bethlehem Baptist Church Reopening Plan

In keeping with the CDC guidelines, the following is our re-opening plan:

 

Phases 1 & 2: COMPLETED Drive up and include outside worship with social distancing through August 2nd (during drive-up/outside worship, you may bring lawn chairs and sit on the grounds).

 
 

Phase 3: Beginning August 9th - Limited in-house worship with social distancing and drive-up/outside worship still available.

 

We want to share the following information with you to make you aware of guidelines we must follow during this transition period. It will be very different than how we normally worship for a time, but the Lord will lead us through.

- Bethlehem Baptist Church has been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized in preparation for this time.

- Masks will be provided, if needed, and hand sanitizer will be available. Although we aren’t going to require all in-house attendees to wear a mask, we STRONGLY ENCOURAGE it!

- Limited in-house seating will occur on a first-come, first-serve basis. Social distancing will occur with families who live in the same household being allowed to sit together. Seating will begin at the front of the church, in the choir loft, and proceed toward the back of the sanctuary accordingly following distancing guidelines. There will also be spaces provided in the back rooms of the church and fellowship hall. We kindly ask that you refrain from "mingling" after being seated.

- Once the service is over, congregants will be dismissed one pew at a time, allowing time for previous dismissals to reach their vehicles. While we understand it will be very difficult, we ask that you refrain from congregating outside at this time and proceed to your vehicle so as to keep dismissal procedures flowing quickly and efficiently.

 

* While there are no guarantees for completely preventing the spread of COVID-19, we feel that this is the best procedure for our congregation to slowly begin getting back to some form of normalcy. We ask that you please be patient and continue to follow all guidelines.

 

Phase 4: October 4th (tentative)

Sunday School resumes following current protocols.

 

A welcome back service is being discussed. Possible dates to be announced!
