In the midst of the pandemic, our worship has had to adapt. There are currently several options for participating in worship with our congregation:
Worship @ Home
We will be streaming worship online at facebook.com/bethanylongview as well as on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSrgbiDWVYBB8ibeB7qZpvg and the most recent video of worship will be available here. You can also listen to Pastor Megan’s sermons online here: https://bethanylongview.org/sermons .
During our worship at home, each service will include a time where you may receive communion at home with whatever elements you have available, they will be included in our communion together electronically.
You can also check out Pastor Megan’s “How To” videos on our YouTube Page here for How to Use Zoom and here for Using Google Drive for extra help in using Zoom or uploading readings and songs. Please know that Pastor Megan is available to walk you through technology needs.
Worship Watch Party
Beginning August 16th a Worship Watch Party will be held in the church sanctuary at 12:30pm each Sunday. RSVPs are required as seating is limited.
What you need before arriving:
- RSVP to Pastor Megan
- Check your temperature before leaving the house and self-assess for illness. If you have a fever above 99.5 or other symptoms of illness, please stay home. Call Pastor Megan to check in.
- Face Mask/Covering, Communion Elements, Offering if necessary
- A physical distance of at least 6 feet must be maintained from people outside your family unit.
- Complete attendance lists must be kept for all events to facilitate contract tracing.
- Many elements of worship will be changed to meet health and safety standards. Passing the Peace visitors will remain in their pews and share peace signs or waves to others gathered. Offering and Communion will be held at the close of worship for visitors to place offering in plate as they exit and communion elements consumed in vehicles. Singing is still a risky behavior, and so it is recommended that if you choose to sing, to give as much space as possible to others.
