SHARING WITH ALL PEOPLE GOD'S WORD, LOVE & SAVING GRACE
10/7/2020 - Update
The Congregation Council of Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church has formulated and approved the BELC Re-Opening Plan for us to safely resume in-person worship at the appropriate time. The Re-Opening Plan has been designed in conjunction with the MI Safe Start Plan and will be implemented when the public health data deems it safe for large in-person gatherings. We are currently in Phase 4 of the MI Safe Start Plan, which does not allow for large indoor gatherings. Phase 5 of the Plan allows for gatherings of no more than fifty (50) people indoors with face masks and social distancing (6’). As Council stated in the announcement of the Plan, BELC will not immediately resume in-person worship services when it is deemed safe by the MI Safe Start Plan. Council will make sure that all safety protocols are in place and that the worship environment at BELC is safe and secure for all our members.
As this health crisis continues, we appreciate your understanding. We have done our best to see that worship continues and that essential ministries continue. Our disappointment in not having our doors open to our neighbors, friends, and congregants is immeasurable. It is more than balanced, however, by our certainty that Bethlehem's commitment to the health of our communities is saving lives.
God has blessed us individually with unique gifts and talents necessary to the work of the kingdom. We value and cherish our members, and look forward to the time we can meet again and worship together again.
May God continue to bless you all, and may he continue to bless our church.
