Worshipping in a Pandemic

Worshipping in a Pandemic

Dear People of Bethesda-by-the-Sea,

Beginning Sunday, January 2, 2022, we are requiring everyone to wear a mask for in-person worship in the church and for all other indoor activities at Bethesda. We will carefully assess the situation in the coming weeks and adjust these protocols accordingly.

Also, as more and more Palm Beach County residents are exposed to the Omicron variant, we invite everyone who has experienced exposure to someone who has tested positive for the virus, or anyone who is awaiting a test result, to participate in our live-stream worship service at 11 a.m.. We also continue to encourage all people of age to be vaccinated and to receive a booster shot.

We look forward to the day when we will return to our regular worship and activities.

The Clergy, Staff, and Wardens of Bethesda
