Don't let mumps spoil your fun!

Dear Parents and Guardians:

A person who attended Vacation Bible School June 6-10, 2016, at Bethesda has recently developed the mumps.  Mumps is spread when someone with the illness has close contact with others through coughing, sneezing, and direct contact with their saliva (like sharing cups, silverware, plates).  Anyone who had close contact with this person is at risk for getting mumps.  At this time, it appears that the Kindergarten/1st Grade Bible school classes may be at higher risk for getting the mumps.

We are working with Four Corners Health Department to make sure that all who attended Bible School are notified.  Every family, teacher, helper, committee member, and staff member will be receiving a letter from Four Corners Health Department in York within the next day or two. 

If you experience any of the symptoms for mumps, you should stay away from public activities and contact your doctor or the Four Corners Health Department at 402-362-2621 (toll-free 877-337-3573) to be checked, even if you have been vaccinated.  For more information on mumps, go to http://www.cdc.gov/mumps/

Postponing events...

Occasional bad weather may necessitate cancelling or postponing activities at church for the safety of our members and staff. Pastors and staff will determine if events at Bethesda should be cancelled/postponed when bad weather, power outages, storms or tornadoes occur. Typically, if Heartland Community School is closed or is closing early, Bethesda will follow their lead and cancel events at church.

  • Closing information will be posted on the website,1370 KAWL Radio and Heartland Beat.
  • Junior high and high school youth and parents will be notified by text.
  • You may call the church office at 402-723-4562 or the Office Manager at 402-723-4693 (home)regarding closings.
