With so much in the news about the coronavirus (COVID-19), it's hard to separate facts from hyperbole. We want to protect the flock, while ensuring we do not cause any undue panic.
As such, we believe it's appropriate for our church to take precautionary measures to ensure that we do everything possible to keep COVID-19 at bay. This is especially important as we have people of all ages who may be particularly susceptible to the virus.
As a church, we are taking the following precautions, and we ask that you help us keep these protocols in place for the next several weeks:
• Avoid personal contact such as handshaking. We will suspend our typical handshaking time on Sunday morning.
• Use hand sanitizer or wash your hands for 20 seconds when arriving at church.
• If you feel ill and have any of the possible symptoms of COVID-19 (runny nose, sore throat, persistent cough, fever), please do not attend church until symptoms subside.
• If you have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or if you have been in contact with anyone who recently traveled abroad, please self-quarantine for 14 days before returning to church.
Thank you for helping us put these precautions in place!
What makes Berkshire Hills Baptist Church so special? Very simply, it is the people. BHBC is a church filled with caring, loving, and friendly people.
Our church is here to serve you through regular weekly ministries as well as special activities throughout the year. It is here that relationships are made and where Christ is magnified. Yes, we are growing, and we praise God that so many have found a place to call home. On behalf of everyone here at BHBC, we would love to have you worship the Lord with us.
