Good news. The Bedford Park Church board has voted to approve the opening of our church doors for the main worship service.
The state of NY is now allowing churches to open their buildings for up to 50% of their building’s capacity. The building is large enough to accommodate all of our usual attendees. We will be meeting in the gym so that we can practice proper social distancing.
So starting this Saturday:
The service will begin at 12:30pm
Here is the order of the service:
Testimonies and prayer requests will follow
Discussion based on the message
This will not be livestreamed. In order to accommodate those who are not able to attend at this time do to safety concerns, they can watch the livestream on this website that will air at 11:15am.
I want to assure you that the church is following the guidelines set out by the Center for Disease Control as well as the NY State Department of Health. You can see the guidelines when you pre-register.
We are asked to keep a log of attendance for our services, so we are asking members before they arrive to pre-register by clicking this link below:
Sabbath School will remain on the zoom at 9:50am -10:45am. No in-person Sabbath School will be available at the church building.
Food will not be eaten in the building.
We have plenty of face masks from the Adventist Community Services. We encourage you to bring your own face coverings, however these masks will be provided for those who may not have any. These masks must be worn at all times while moving about in the building.
Social distancing will be observed. Members are to sit 6 feet apart, with the exception of families which are allowed to sit together. To aide in this, designated seating areas will be marked off.
We are asking members that wish to be present to fill out the online form.
The conference has provided me with a 40 page document outlining the regulations of the New York State Department of Health and the Centers of Disease and Control Prevention (CDC). I have read this thoroughly. I studied it like I was preparing for a test. So I want to assure you we will be safe and will be complying with all their regulations.
I encourage you to attend our worship service on Saturdays at 12:30pm.
However I do recognize that we have a number of people who are at high risk due to health conditions and age. We are not encouraging you to attend. Please take advantage of the messages on my website.
For all others that are able to attend, click here to attend.
It is going to be a blessed time together.
