Welcome to the Bretton Woods Covenant Church COVID-19 update page. We will update this page of our site with details regarding the operations and precautions of BWCC. Our leadership team has been hard at work praying and making informed decisions based on local health conditions and state recommeded guidelines. 

For a full outline of our three phase re-opening plan, please click here.

Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God— even as I try to please everyone in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved.

1 Corinthians 10:32-33 (NIV)

Phase 3: What to Expect

Relaxing Sunday worship gathering restrictions and re-engaging in-person children & youth ministries and food & fellowship ministries with updated safety procedures. The Leadership Team will continue evaluating the risk factors in our area and clarify procedures for children & youth ministries to keep the environment clean and sanitary and implement safer practices to minimize risk of virus spread. We will also confirm new guidelines for food preparation, service, and physical distancing to minimize risk. The Leadership Team will decide to implement elements of Phase 3 once we are confident that it is safe to do so.

Please see these additional notes on moving to a Phase 3.1 Status:

Dear BWCC Family,

 The leadership team at BWCC has been closely monitoring the ongoing situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic. After carefully evaluating the risks, and prevention steps required, it has been determined that we are proceeding into Phase 3. As outlined in our plan at the beginning of the pandemic Phase 3 will be to resume normality at church, but in its own phases. Our plan starts first with fellowship hour only. Children’s church, Nursery, and Wednesday Night Live are not being reinstated at this time. Consider it as Phase 3.1.

 We are beginning step 3 by once again re-instating fellowship time after Sunday worship service. As was the norm in pre-pandemic conditions, we are asking for anyone who feels led to sign up on the sheet in the fellowship hall. We are kindly asking not to provide meal type items, but snack foods (cookies, crackers, fruits, veggies, etc.) and beverages – coffee will always be available at the church. We encourage those both vaccinated or not, to not only wear a mask, but also wash and sanitize your hands. Masks are not mandatory. If you are providing for fellowship time, be sure to follow normal health safety protocols when preparing food and beverage items. When filling your plate, please only use the utensils provided to serve your food.

 We want to thank everyone for the ongoing support, patience, and understanding at Bretton Woods Cov. Church throughout the pandemic, and practicing health safety measures to keep not only our church safe, but our neighborhoods and community at large. We look forward to fellowship with you at our next Sunday!


With God’s Love,

The Leadership Team at BWCC:

Sig Langenberg (Chair)

Joe Crupper (Vice-chair)

Brenda Greene (Secretary)

Marlene Soderstrom (Financial Officer)

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)

Love God. Be the church. Bless the world.
