Sunday Morning Worship

Hello Bethany Friends and Family,

Cowlitz County Covid numbers have dropped below the point where we closed the building back in August. Because of this, we will be resuming in-person services on October 17th with the following protocols in place…


● open windows
● wear coats to stay warm
● use fans to circulate air
● socially distanced with max. seating of 45
● temperature check to enter and masks required of all
● sanitize weekly (or between events)
● 30-35 minute service limit
● only singing by praise team of not more than 5
● no organized coffee hour
● all must sign in and commit to report if exposed to COVID


As the numbers continue to drop (hopefully), council will be looking at the suggestions by the Synod for getting back to “normal”. Please pray for those in charge as they continue to make decisions with the well being of the entire church community in mind. We will be continuing with Zoom and Facebook Live Streaming and YouTube videos will be available on the following Tuesday.

Each ministry team will be able to decide if they wish to meet in person, virtually, or a combination of the two, as best suits their team members and their work.
