Our precautions and protocol:
For those who are healthy and feel comfortable attending, we encourage you to wear a mask during your visit. We will be happy to provide you with one if you need it. We will also have plenty of hand sanitizer available. Bathrooms will operate with social distancing in mind.

Services:
We have reduced the capacity of a typical Sunday, and pews have been taped off to provide extra distance. We ask that you only sit with those you share a household with, and leave three seats between your family and another family. We will forgo our traditional greeting times before and after service in-doors. We have drop-off boxes for offering.

Other Ministries:
•Any service or ministry that is not listed above is postponed at this time. We will certainly continue to keep you updated on start back dates.  
•Our coffee and merch shops will be closed at this time.
•We encourage the continued use of the texting or calling church staff with prayer needs, and if you are able,
our prayer ministry still meets before service at 10:30AM on Sundays.
•Give via text by texting bethelcmc to 73256 and follow the instructions.
•You can also contact any of our Pastors @478-862-3007 if you are interested in being baptized or have a specific need.
•There will be no choir ministry at this time, but our praise teams will still meet on Friday evenings for practice, and then again on Sunday mornings for service.

Online Service:
We are working hard to hopefully provide an avenue of having our indoor services run Live on Facebook and on our YouTube platforms. However, in the meantime, we encourage you to visit our YouTube page at Bethel CMC Music And Media , and watch something from our archive. Thank you in advance for your grace as we look forward to enhancing our online capabilities.

Thank you so much for being a part of our Bethel Church family; we’re so excited to see you!
