Updated November 25: Discontinuing Wednesday Connection Meals and Events 

As our church community responds to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), see an ongoing update of Bethlehem’s plans for ministry below. Also, consider subscribing to our Weekly e-newsletter for further updates.

Monitoring & Illness Prevention
Bethlehem leadership is monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and will seek to follow the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and from the Minnesota Dept of Health as they address this evolving situation. See this helpful Q&A from the Star Tribune (page regularly updated).

COVID-19 Disclosure Protocol
Have you been diagnosed with COVID-19? If so, and if you attended a worship service or other Bethlehem event within several days of experiencing symptoms or testing positive, please help us protect the congregation and staff by letting the church know as soon as possible. Please contact Erika Booth (612-338-7653 x457). We won’t share your information, other than to generally inform other attendees that “someone” at a specific service or event has tested positive. Thank you!

Discontinuing Wednesday Connection Meals
In light of the Governor’s Executive Orders on November 18 concerning the spread of COVID-19, we will no longer serve a meal at Wednesday Connection on the North and South campuses, at least through the end of 2020.

Worship Services

Bethlehem is hosting public, in-person services are held at all campuses. We continue to provide an online livestream worship service as well.

Registration is required to attend public, in-person worship services and space is limited. Congregants are asked to exit the building promptly following the services and to carry on fellowship, socially distanced, outdoors.
