Dear Bemidji Covenant Church and friends,

As of right now, there are no positive cases of COVID-19 reported in Bemidji. We are aware that could change at any moment. 

As information stands at this time, we are joining our Health and Government leaders in closing access to our facility and moving our ministry online. All regular and scheduled activities are canceled. Many will move to online and be resourced. 

Please be aware that we are watching the developments of the Corona Virus carefully. We will keep you all informed of Bemidji Covenant schedules as best as we can. 

Watch for our Bemidji Covenant Church emails and visit the church Facebook and website for the most current up to date notifications.

As is being mentioned everywhere: Please practice physical distancing, intentional hand washing, do not shake hands, do not touch your face, etc. 

To assist us in being aware of one another’s needs and to aid in our prayer for one another, please let us know if you are ill. This is helpful all the time, but particularly during this time.

To attend worship online use our website: bemidjicovenant.com or here on Facebook. One of our concerns with attendance at our online services is the loss of gathering together in community. We can mitigate this a bit by letting one another know of your online presence with a greeting and comments in the live chat line. If you have questions or difficulty or need further instructions on how to do this please call us and we will try to guide you.

Finally, remember that we need not be fearful. God is our refuge and strength an ever-present help in times of trouble.

 

Your partner in the gospel,

Pastor Todd on behalf of the Bemidji Covenant Staff and Leadership Team
