The Kingdom of God and the family of faith in Jesus Christ has never been about the building, however, the gathering of believers has always been and will remain a critical and core part of our journey of faith. Hebrews 10:24 reminds us to "think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works." We need each other in each other's lives to continue to grow closer to Jesus! One way of doing that is to meet together on Sunday mornings, just as the early church made a practice of doing. To that end, as of June 28, 2020, Sunday morning gatherings will resume with 2 service times (9:30am & 11:00am) with a few necessary changes being implemented.
As per provincial COVID-19 protocols issued by the Chief Medical Officer of British Columbia, large gatherings are limited to no more than 50 individuals, and only as long as physical distancing and other health precautions are followed. As a result, in order to begin meeting at the church with our church family, a registration system is being implemented.
Some allowance in registration capacity has been made for a few "walk-ins", however those individuals will still be asked to provide their contact information should health authorities need to followup with them in order to manage an outbreak should one occur.
There are a few ways to register for church:
- Use the Church Center app (find it on the Android and iOS/Apple app stores)
- Or, betheldc.churchcenter.com/registrations
- Or, call the church office: 250-782-5885
We look forward to meeting together and worshipping the Lord in-person starting Sunday June 28, 2020!
And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
