Dear Church Family.  


I know that many of you are looking forward to regathering this coming Sunday at Tuscarora! The weather looks like it is going to be okay for us, but if you enjoy praying, please be praying for clouds with no rain in them.  The clouds will make it a little easier to be outside in warmer temperatures.


Here are some important details regarding this coming weekend’s regathering service:


1.     The service will be held in the field adjacent to the big parking lot starting at 10:00am. You may want to come a little early to help stagger arrival times and allow yourself time to get “set up.” We would prefer not to have a huge rush of people at 9:55.

2.     There will be a handful of small, 10x10 canopy tents available on a first come, first served basis.  If you have your own canopy tent that you would like to bring, you are welcomed to do so but please set them up on the outskirts of the viewing area so as not to block other peoples’ views.

3.     The primary seating area will be on the grassy field adjacent to the parking lot.  Please bring your own lawn chairs if possible. We will have some folding chairs available, but lawn chairs will be more comfortable.  For those with smaller children, you are welcome to bring a blanket to spread out on the grass in your area.

4.     For those seated on the field or under a canopy, we will be seeking to honor social distancing.  Please respect others’ space while setting up your seats.  If you have a small group of people with whom you have been in regular contact, and those within that group are not concerned about social distancing, you are welcomed to sit more closely together.  

5.     We will reserve the parking spots nearest to the field for those who need to stay in or would feel more comfortable staying near their cars.

6.     Facemasks are not necessary for the service portion of the morning. However, facemasks are necessary for the food line and if you need to use the restrooms inside the auditorium.  Please plan accordingly.

7.     We will have lyrics available for the songs.  If you would rather be in charge of your own lyrics, you may want to either print out these lyrics and bring them with you or take a screen shot of these lyrics on your tablet or phone so you can access them more easily Sunday morning (celluar service is not very good on the field).  

8.     Restrooms will be available throughout the morning inside the auditorium.  As stated above, facemasks must be worn inside the auditorium.

9.     There is also a picture attached to this email that might give you a little better idea of how the space will be set up.



For those of you uncomfortable gathering in larger crowds, there will be a recorded service available for you here on www.mountbethelchurch.org and YouTube.  We trust God will be at work wherever His Word is being proclaimed!

Dear Friends,


Mount Bethel Church is continuing to cancel all services for the foreseeable future. Our facility is open and our pastoral and support staff will be in the office to continue to care for the needs of our congregation. Additionally, official elected boards of the church will continue to meet as appropriate.  While this situation is unprecedented, we are hopeful that each one of us will take opportunities to care for those around us with the love and compassion exemplified by Christ.

Please continue to pray that the church remains united, that hearts continue to turn to and trust our Lord, and that His Kingdom will continue to be built. 

Serving with you in Him,

Pastor Chris, on behalf of the staff and elders of MBC









The word means a lot of things to a lot of different people.  For most of us, though, church is either a nice white building or something one does for about an hour each Sunday morning. 


Such viewpoints are unfortunate, despite their popularity.  They're unfortunate because they miss what church can be.  Even more, they miss what the church is called to be. 


It isn’t until one takes away the walls and the formal pulpit, even the cushioned pews and weekly bulletins, that the true church begins to emerge; a church that isn’t made of static objects and disposable resources, but a church that is made of people.  Real people with real needs dealing with real life.  This is the church.


Amazingly, Jesus promised to build His church.  He promised to do a work in people that would transform their entire lives.  And there are countless stories of that very work being done in our midst. 


Regardless of where you are in that transformation process - even if you don't think it has begun - please know that we would love for you to become a part of us.
