You can worship at the church from your car or in a lawn chair, socially distanced, and masked. Please bring your own chair so that we can limit the amount that we set up and have to sanitize.

Option Open: Join Us Now on Sundays and Worship in The Park at Bethesda

We miss seeing you and we look forward to gathering together even if we will only see the part of your face not covered by a mask. If you are not feeling well on a Sunday morning, we ask that you stay home.

For those who are not able to come, we will still be streaming and posting the service so you won’t miss out.


We will live stream the worship from the park at 10am on Facebook.

Recordings will be available later in the day on Sundays at our Vimeo, YouTube and PodBean channels. We will send an email with those links when they are ready.

Please consider subscribing to our channels which will send you a notification when new items are posted.

Guidelines For Those Who Come To Worship

We will be worshipping close to the west parking lot so if you have trouble walking but want to sit in a chair, you can park in the west lot. If you plan to stay in your car, enter the west lot and we will have people directing you to a place to park. If you park in the east lot, you can take the sidewalk to the Gazebo and an usher will direct you from there.

We will be asking people to RSVP for worship and we will be checking you in at worship. RSVP will not be mandatory but it will help us in our planning.

Checking in will be mandatory so that if the county needs contact tracing information, we can provide it for them. Look for the person with an iPad to check you in.

Masks are strongly encouraged and we will have masks available. Val Gilkison is making a bunch for us. Masks will need to be worn by all in the congregation who plan to sing. We are confident that being outside is the safest place for us to worship. But we still need to be cautious. Worship leaders will take their masks off when they are in front of the congregation leading to be heard and seen better.

Practice good physical distancing. Seating will be laid out in a grid for proper spacing. You will be seated by when you arrive so that we can fill from the front and lessen the cross traffic. As tempting as it will be, this is not the time to share a hug or a handshake. Many churches have become the epicenter of outbreaks because good physical distancing was not maintained. We don’t want that kind of publicity.

Please bring your own chair so that we can limit the amount that we set up and have to sanitize. Shade is limited so you may have to sit in the sun.

If walking on the grass is an issue, you can stay in your car and participate in worship from there. We will have a radio station for you to tune into.

We will be having communion on the first Sunday of each month and possibly more. When you arrive, you will pick up your communion elements and bulletins for your family and then be ushered to your square. If you plan to worship from your car, we will bring communion and bulletins to you before worship begins.

We will have port-a-potties available for use during worship.
