Dear friend and fellow members of the body of Christ,
Due to the rapid and ever-increasing positive testing results, it was felt that at this time we should close our building to face-to-face worship. While this decision has not been made lightly or in any way in an authoritarian fashion, it is still very hard to see it happening. We will be continuing our other forms for worship: Facebook (Life at Bethany Lutheran Salisbury Maryland), and YouTube (Bethany Lutheran Salisbury, Maryland). Further announcements can be found on the website (bethanylutheransalisburymaryland.com) or by calling the church office. This action is begin taken until the infection rate has decreased to the number identified by the school system as low enough to open again. Each week you are welcome to call the church office (410-742-1737), beginning Friday afternoon to see if the church will be face-to-face meeting the upcoming Sunday.
We will also be offering a different form of worship on Sunday morning. At nine o’clock on Sunday mornings we will be holding a no contact service in the parking lot (enclosed is a copy of the service that will be our form of worship). You will be able to tune in on your radio and participate in the time of worship from your car. We will not be collecting an offering or serving communion, but we will be able to gather in a unique way to praise God together. This worship style will first be offered this Sunday, January, 17th. (Morning prayer link.)
Please continue to pray for relief from COVID-19 and other struggles that are preventing us from worshipping as one.
Who are we?
We are a loving church family who follows the teachings of Martin Luther as expressed in Ephesians 2:8 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.“
What are we?
We are a Missouri Synod congregation, established in 1931, of approximately 150 communicant members.
Where are we?
We are located in Salisbury, MD on the corner of Camden Ave. and South Blvd.
Why do we exist?
We exist, as a church body in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to learn of Him through His Holy Scriptures, to worship Him only, and to serve Him by meeting the needs of others and by sharing the gift of salvation through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our verse for January:
“Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy!” – Psalm 47:1
*MONTHLY JOY VERSE
The Bible is filled with verses that remind us to be happy, joyful, and content. Continue to rejoice and be glad that we have been granted His gracious gift of salvation which we can share as we witness to those around us. Christ died for us – be filled with joy!
Sometime during your day, lift your voice in praise to the Lord.
We are a member church of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Click on cross icon to visit L.C.M.S. website.
