* Inclement Weather & Building Closure *

It is officially the bleak mid-winter and weather is complicated, but at Bethany, we are trying to simplify our inclement weather policies to ensure duty of care for our faith community.

During the week and Saturday, Board of Managers in collaboration with lay and ministry staff, decide if the building closes to renters and members for clean up after weather systems.

On Sundays, the process for this decision falls to the Lead Minister, Clerk of Session and Chair of the Executive Board regarding cancellation of worship service.

Decision announcement by 8am. Check in various locations, depending on access to power and technology. i.e. CBC Storm Centre, Bethany website, social media, and a congregational email when possible.

On entry points to the building, posted will be a closure notice.

Lost and Found– Items usually end up in the office. We have a little white bin where treasures are kept.

Upcoming Opportunities for Fellowship

Attention Bethany!      Scripture says, “You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colours in the world…If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand.”     So… it’s time to step out and share your talent, your light, your song, with us. Date to save:  Friday April 12th  at  7 pm  in the  Rev. E. Moase Fellowship Hall .    In the early part of February,there will be a signup sheet just in the hall near the Ladies Parlour. We invite you to add your name to it with your contact information. Our staff will then contact you and ask about your presentation so we can suggest the best place in the program to include your special talent. We want to hear from you!  We are aiming for at least 10 acts for this night of fun and celebration for God’s gift to us. We are hoping as many people as possible from our community will come out to support and affirm these talented friends. IF we don’t receive the desired interest, we will know to put this idea on hold for another time. We will wait on the spirit…  The Bethany Players normally offer a spring play every other year, but for the last three years there has been a large production to shift our winter spirit into the springtime. The Players are taking a break this spring so we are wondering if a variety show would be good medicine for our souls. We hope you agree.
