THE UNITED CHURCH OF CANADA
CARBONEAR PASTORAL CHARGE: Bethany United Church
COVID-19 PASTORAL LETTER 2
August 24, 2020
A Call for Brave Faith, Resilience and Innovation
Dear Carbonear Pastoral Charge at Bethany United and Beyond
Grace and Peace to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The pandemic reminds us of the unusual experience faced by the Israelites in Babylon. The Exiles resigned from their songs of praise as recorded by Psalm 137: 4
“How could we sing to the Lord in a foreign land?”
For the first time in a lifetime, we could not gather to celebrate the most significant event in our faith because of the threat posed by the pandemic. We missed the Easter event, the Sacraments, our sanctuary and each other. We missed the roles we played in the life of the Church and of one another. Yet God was and is with us.
Paul’s epistle to the Church at Rome asks; “What shall separate us from the love of Christ?” Romans 8: 35a. Not even death itself. The pandemic could not stop God’s love, the gospel and fellowship. Through virtual gatherings Online and Teleconference, we have continued to share the good news and encourage each other. With brave faith, resilience and innovation, we remained “the Church” by offering pastoral and mutual care to the community and to each other. Thanks to the leaders and volunteers for creativity. Thank you all for your gifts and participation.
Now that we have an opportunity to gather again, worship together, and offer the ministry of presence, let us embrace it with diligence, brave faith and innovation. In-person worship has proven to be more than a privilege, but sacred. The doors of Bethany United are scheduled to open for regular worship on September 13th of 2020, at 11 am. This will come with new protocols as prescribed by public health that require us to take maximum precautions.
Let us continue to hold on to our faith, serve God by serving others and be the answer to somebody else’s prayer. Keep the hurting in your prayers, praying for the pandemic and that professionals find the vaccine. With brave faith, resilience and innovation, let us face the future.
Thank you to all Frontline Workers, Volunteers and Leaders.
Grace and Peace be with you all
Rev Simba

Message from Bethany Treasurer:

While we all have focused on “keeping safe” during these pandamic times, we as a congregation are experiencing financial challenges with our regular church servcices on hold.

Our health officials have said staying at home in our own bubble is paying off and we commend and thank our church family for that.

At this time I want to encourage you all to continue supporting your church financially by dropping off your envelope at the church office on Tuesdays 10am – 1pm, mailing in your contribution or by E-transfer.

Your Lenten, Easter Offerings and Mother’s Day Memorials were received and appreciated.

As many of our expenses for operations must continue, we need your support, and thank you in advance for this.

Please keep safe.

Milton Peach                                                                                                                                          Treasurer/Finance Chair
