Church is open for indoor worship! Please join us Sunday's at 9:00 am!
A portion of Bishop Bill Tesch's most recent (Aug. 26, 2021) letter to NWMN Synod congregations:
"As I write this from my home in Detroit Lakes, it is raining here and across much of our region. I am giving thanks for this respite from the drought, even as I continue to pray for farmers and ranchers whose livelihoods have been so severely impacted. Speaking of “respite,” we enjoyed a brief one from the pandemic this summer when we were able to remove our masks and return to gathering without restrictions. However, I have recently begun wearing a mask again when I am among you indoors due to the increasing spread of the Delta variant of the virus. Believe me, I am as disheartened to be writing this message as you are to be receiving it! The Minnesota Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention strongly recommend the wearing of masks indoors by both vaccinated and unvaccinated people. Masks have been proven to greatly limit the spread of this virus. The new variant is twice as contagious, and studies suggest that even vaccinated people who are asymptotic for disease may still spread the virus to unvaccinated people who could then become ill with COVID-19. Accordingly, I am recommending that worshippers in our congregations return to wearing masks indoors in order to protect our neighbors from this disease." Due to this current rise in Covid cases, the Bethany Church Council recommends and encourages everyone to wear masks and practice social distancing (to the best of your ability) at church.
Please follow all recommended guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19, to keep your neighbor and yourself safe.
And please do not stop praying for each other. Do not stop reaching out to people. Send a card, call someone who you haven't seen for a while, drop a small gift off for a friend (socially distanced), check on those people that you haven't heard from in a while. Don't stop showing people you care and that you love them. Now, more than ever, we need to continue being kind, showing love. God Loves You and So Do We!
