A letter from Pastor Marc

Bethany Church Family,

In the words of Paul, “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” 

It is after a lot of prayer, study, and reflection that I write to you today. As you probably know, on March 17, 2020, County Administration Mike Merrill entered an order in Hillsborough County limiting all gatherings to 50 people. This order applies to churches as well. The order is based on recommendations  from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to limit the spread of the Coronavirus in Florida. There are legal consequences for churches which do not comply with the order.

Romans 13:1 says, “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.” 

In order to be subject to the governing authorities, we have decided to cancel tonight’s Wednesday night service (3/25/20). In addition, our Sunday morning and evening services, including Sunday school, for March 29nd will be cancelled while we work on putting together some type of video streaming services or  other type of communication so we can stay connected as a church body.

Hebrews 10:25 tells us to not forsake the assembling of ourselves together. I would like to encourage you assemble in your home and plan to have a church service with your family at home. Plan it together and celebrate the Lord’s Day together. I would also like to encourage you to stay in touch and encourage one another through telephone calls, texts, Instagram, FaceBook and other forms of social media during this restrictive time.

I would like to leave you with some encouragement from God’s Word. Jesus said, “In the world you shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer. I have overcome the world.” He is still in control. You can trust Him.  I am also attaching a sheet of Scriptures to put on your refrigerators at home and share with your families and others.

A special note for our seniors and any others in the high risk category: If you need someone to pick up a prescription or groceries for you, or have any other needs we  can help you with, please call the church office and we will be happy to help.

The church office hours will remain the same for the time being.

 In His love,

Bro. Marc 

Mark 10:45
