Beans Corner Corona Virus Update

Greetings Bean’s Corner Family,

I wanted to update you on our latest adjustments to the current situation.  We need to remember that Church is WHO we are, not WHERE we are.    We are all learning new ways to carry out Jesus’ Mission to Make Disciples.
-All services and group meetings are discontinued as well as any get-togethers greater than 10.  Within these limitations and following all precautions, please find ways to stay connected and have fellowship with each other.  We will reassess our next steps on April 6th.
-We are setting up a care network for older & at-risk people who can’t leave home involving checking in by phone, and possible delivery of goods.  If you are in need of help or if you are able to help provide this care, please contact Rick & Lisa Simoneau 207-779-4600 or 207-779-4400

-We will be doing online-only services the next three Sundays at 10:30 AM on Facebook Live.  (this is a change from our normal streaming time).  This Sunday we will be doing communion!  We’ll send a separate message on how that will work.

-We are doing an online Bible Study in Jeremiah and we will continue to do our 3 o’clock study live online on Sunday afternoon at 3pm.
-All our video updates, services, and studies are also being posted on our Church YouTube page.
-If you are not on our email/text/calling list for the church, send us your contact information and how you would like to receive alerts.

-As we work to serve our community, it is crucial that we keep sharing our resources.  As much as you are able, please continue to making giving part of your worship by either mailing in your tithe & offering or doing it online

-Finally, PRAY.   Let us join our hearts together in prayer for our church, our towns, our state, the nation, and the world.  May we be a light in the darkness.
On behalf of the whole leadership team here at Bean’s Corner, we love you and are here with you.


Bean’s Corner Statement on the Corona virus situation.

We know that there is great concern surrounding the world-wide spread of the virus.  We do not fear because of faith in God, and we seek to be wise in dealing with the situation and fulfill the Biblical command to love our neighbor.

As we move forward we will be constantly reviewing & updating our plans and responses as more information becomes available.

For THIS WEEK we are taking the following steps.


-We will be holding services this Sunday with modified procedures.  Neither of our services fall under the state guidelines for groups over 250.


-We will not be serving breakfast.


-We will not be scheduling communion during this time.


-Our greeters will not be shaking hands (and all should avoid doing so) and bulletins will be put out on a table but not passed out.


-Offering plates will not be passed but instead be placed by the doors for you to drop your gifts in.  Remember you may also give electronically through our website;


-If you are sick or have been in contact with others who have been at risk of exposure, we ask that you stay at home and join us on the live stream available through Facebook.


-If you are at greater risk, due to age or medical condition, we encourage you to shelter at home.  Please communicate with us any needs or support you need.


-Before & after services, all main doors will be propped open to minimize shared contact on surfaces.


-Smaller groups, including the communities are not affected at this time, and we encourage everyone to stay in touch even if you must stay away.  We must not come apart even when we need to observe safe distances.

Remember that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and love, and of a sound mind.  As a church, we will seek to care for one another and our community during this time of trial, showing love, not fear, and being wise in the Lord.

I love you all,
