COVID 19 ADENDUM TO BETHEL LUTHERAN CHURCH USE POLICY – UPDATED JUNE 8, 2021

While Bethel has adhered to a policy of beneficial usage of the buildings which we have been blessed to own as a congregation of the ELCA. We must continue to institute some restrictions on its use for the protection of our staff, our congregation, and members of those organizations which have a historical use of Bethel’s buildings.

Usage of our facilities shall continue to be limited to those organizations which are supportive of Bethel’s ongoing mission and to those who have a current contract with Bethel for the use of the church’s facilities. All organizations that are using the facilities will be required to follow all the current use guidelines or any new guidelines adopted by the church council or as mandated by any federal, state or local government agency.

Current guidelines include but are not limited to:

  • Masks will be voluntary and are recommended if persons are or have been ill, or if people are more comfortable wearing them.
  • Social Distancing would still be appreciated.
  • Food or beverages will be allowed upon request. Council will review requests.
  • All contact surfaces must be wiped down with a sanitization product before leaving.
  • Any additional expense incurred due to requirements for additional sanitization of the facilities, or part of, shall be paid by the responsible parties involved.

This addendum will take effect upon passing and stay in effect until removed by a vote of the church council.

ELECTRIC CITY HIKING JEW CREW

Let’s try another hike! Aaron, Devorah and I are planning on going to Augusta to do the Devil’s Glen hike on Saturday June 5th! It is a 6 mile hike and rated as easy.

For anyone that wants to go, meet at our house (315 4th Ave North) Saturday morning, June 5th at 7:30 AM. Bring water, lunch and anything else you think you need – a hat, sunscreen, hiking poles, etc. We will be gone most of the day.

For anyone that wants a less strenuous hike, Get Fit Great Falls is doing their National Trails Day that day and have lots of easier guided options (some even paved) for those who wish to partake. Check out http://getfitgreatfalls.com for more details on the hikes they are offering.

What better way to spend Shabbat than in the wilderness – whether it is on a paved hike or a little further out in nature, let’s get out into the fresh air and get some exercise!

Wendy

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THIS UPCOMING EVENT

This is a reminder regarding the Kabbalat Shabbat lay services led by Devorah Werner the first Friday of the month, June 4, 2021, at 6:00 P.M. at the Bethel. The church requires that you wear masks, social distance, and do not bring food or drink with you in the building.

The address for the Bethel is 1009 18th Avenue Southwest. click here for map and directions.

Hope to see as many of you there as possible.

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THIS UPCOMING EVENT: RESUMING MONTHLY SERVICES

Due to the pandemic, monthly services were temporarily suspended. Now we are taking tentative steps toward resuming some activities in an effort to get back to more “normal” life.

With this in mind, we would like to resume the lay services led by Devorah Werner the first Friday of the month, May 7, at 6:00 P.M. at the Bethel, with the caveat that if the weather is inclement we will postpone it to the second Friday of the month. We would like to hold our first gathering outside in the courtyard behind the Bethel. There are some picnic tables out there, but you may prefer to bring your own folding chair. We request that you observe state and CDC guidelines regarding the pandemic protocol — wear masks, social distance, do not bring food or drink to share.

The address for the Bethel is 1009 18th Avenue Southwest. click here for map and directions.

Hope to see as many of you there as possible.

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THIS UPCOMING EVENT: CEMETERY CLEANUP

Please join us on Sunday, May 2, at 10:00 A.M. at the Eaton Road Cemetery to help clean up. After not being able to assemble do to the pandemic, and due to the winter and the recent winds we have had, the cemetery is in dire need of a refresh. Please bring your lawn mowers, weed whackers, or the desire to run one, or whatever else you can to help with the cleanup effort, plus a sack lunch and something to drink for yourself. Many hands will make light work, and it will be so nice to finally see you all in person, face to face.  Thank you.
