Thank you, Thank YOU, THANK YOU to our amazing, dedicated Pastoral Search Committee!
You worked long and hard and have found us a new Pastor. Reverend Jennifer Legg will be with us as of the first Sunday in November (11/7).
Thank you to Ray Reuter (chairman), Bea Legere, Ernie Popp, Lianne Weisheit (until this year) and Laurie Dickerson. We know that this was a difficult time for a search. Your time and efforts are greatly appreciated.
We will have our last 10:00 am service on September 5th, Labor Day weekend. Then, starting on Sunday, September 12th, we will begin worship at 10:30 am. Elder Peter Pagery will lead us in worship on that date. 10:30 am will be our start time from then on. Come a bit early each Sunday and enjoy a beverage and treat and some time with friends before worship (you are accustomed to arriving at 10:00, anyway). When Pastor Jenn arrives, she will be leading worship at Jerusalem Reformed Church at 9:00 am. 10:30 worship with us allows her time to travel from Feura Bush to Selkirk.
We have lifted the requirement for masks for all who are fully vaccinated. We trust you will use good judgement and care as we continue social distancing in the sanctuary. Our fellowship time will be outdoors and we will continue to broadcast the service to the parking lot for anyone who prefers to remain in their car (AM 1590).
September COVID Update Regarding First Reformed Church Bethlehem Current Policy - COVID and the variants of COVID continue to infect the world. We continue to monitor numbers of infected people in our area. Right now, we feel safe observing social distancing and optional masks. If recommendations change, we will be flexible in our attempts to stay healthy.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Donna Lasher or any consistory member. Remember, church is where you want it to be!
