Church Service Schedule during COVID-19

Church Service Schedule during COVID-19
Church Service Schedule...

We resumed in-person worship on Sunday, May 31, at 10:15am.  We will continue to monitor the virus and its impact on our community each week.  Unless otherwise specified, the information contained on this page will be current.  Individuals can also continue to participate in the church service through the live stream video at www.Beautiful-Savior.net.  At this time we are not including the Lord's Supper in the Sunday morning church service.

If you plan to come to church on Sunday...
* If you are at-risk or among the most vulnerable populations, we ask that you take extra care and consider continuing to participate remotely.
* If you are sick, experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, or have been in close contact with any lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19, we ask that you stay at home.
* Consider using this self-screening survey from the Mayo Clinic CLICK HERE

...Visit with each other outside (before and after the service)

For some, returning to in person worship has been too long in coming.  For others, even resuming now might feel too soon.  We have taken as many details into consideration as possible as we developed this plan.   Each Sunday we pray that God may give us a "spirit of unity."  I am confident he will bless that prayer.  We will support you if you choose to stay at home and we will support you if you choose to come to the church. 

God is good and we have no reason to doubt his love for us as we find the best way to move forward through this new coronavirus world and encourage each other and share the good news with others that...

We are forgiven!
