Christmas greetings, Secret Santas!

We’re excited that our Secret Santa Reveal is almost here! You can find the Zoom link below. Please mark your calendars for 7:00 pm, on Wednesday, December 15, 2021. Rebecca will open us with a brief welcome, followed first by the children sharing their reveals and then the adults. Marguerite will close us in prayer. We ask each participant to open your gift from your Secret Santa anytime BEFORE the Reveal begins.

We’re looking forward to seeing all of you there!

With cheer and love,
The Fellowship Committee

Re-Opening Task Force Updates 

The Task Force met on November 29 and voted unanimously to make the following changes to Mt. Bethel COVID policy: 

  • Allow small group meetings in main facility, following same social distancing and masking requirements as worship. We will invite AA back to its Tuesday and Friday night meetings, starting ASAP. Youth House remains closed due to foundation disrepair, so NA will not meet on Sundays. 
  • Adult Sunday School classes, committees, and Session can elect to schedule meetings in the facility or on Zoom. 
  • Room scheduling should be done through the Staff Specialist in the office. Remember, the size of the room should accommodate social distancing for the number of people in the meeting. 

The Task Force is hopeful that even with the new omicron variant, vaccination rates and continued masking and social distancing will allow us to approach a higher level of in-person activity. Plans continue to be made to allow SHINE and other children’s programs to meet in person after the start of the new year. Please, everyone who can safely get vaccinated, do so at the first opportunity. If you haven’t gotten your booster and you are eligible, please do so. And don’t forget the flu shot if it is safe for you to get one! Thanks to everyone who’s helping to pull Mt. Bethel through this extraordinary time.

NEXT KIDS CLUB outing – Sometime in January, 2022 STAY TUNED!
