Welcome to Bethany

To our church community and guests,(日本語は下にあります。)

Due to the number of Covid-19 cases decreasing in Santa Barbara, more of our people getting vaccinated and the good weather, the elders have decided to start having in-person worship services again in the courtyard starting this Sunday, Feb. 21, 2021. Nichigo will have a Japanese language service in the sanctuary this Sunday and plans to have one Nichigo service per month up until June. The tentative dates for the Nichigo worship services are 2/21, 3/14, 4/18, 5/16, 6/13.

We plan to have English worship services in the courtyard every Sunday unless we have another spike in Covid-19 cases.

Both the indoor Nichigo and outdoor English services will continue with the following mandatory protocols, which include temperature checks and hand sanitizing before the service, social distancing and wearing face masks during the service. We will not have refreshments after the service for the time being.

English service is available for online streaming from link below.
