Good Day Mount Bethel Family,
We pray all is well with you and yours! We talked to pastor this morning and he is doing better. The rest of his household is still well. He asked that I pass on his appreciation for your prayers, calls, and other acts of love. Please keep him and his family lifted up in prayer!
We will be on Facebook live and the conference call line this Sunday, August 9, 2020 at 10:00 am. Rev. Conrad Crook will bring the message. It will also be posted to YouTube sometime Sunday afternoon. We hope you will join us by whatever means best suits you whether in real time or after the fact.
If you don’t want to wait for whenever the next onsite service is, you can submit your offering electronically via PayPal, Givelify, or CashApp. Or you can mail it to Mount Bethel Missionary Baptist Church, 1600 Belt Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63112. Dropping it by the church is still an option if you like.
We encourage you to visit our web site at www.mbmbc.org frequently. The most recent service is posted there along with a link to our Sermons “playlist” which contains previously posted sermons. There are other resources and information there as well. Your input of content is welcome!
God bless you all and have a great day!
Hello Mount Bethel Family,
I spoke with pastor McDaniel today to see how he was doing. He is home and the household is quarantined. Jasmine, and Maurice Junior are well, Jerimiah has a bit of a cold but is otherwise not symptomatic. Pastor is dealing with the coughing and other symptoms but is in good spirits. We ask that you keep that household lifted up in prayer and pray for each other every chance you get.
Need to reemphasize that for the near future, onsite activities at Mount Bethel are cancelled. That includes food giveaways and parking lot services. We hope to have a sermon for broadcast Sunday morning that you can enjoy from home.
Our Sunday School and Prayer call will take place as usual each Wednesday Evening at 6pm. The Sunday School lesson will be slightly expanded for the time being. Please join us if you can.
As always, if you have concerns or unmet needs, reach out to your deacon. If you don’t know who your deacon is or can’t reach them, call me at (314) 266-9419. There are no guarantees that we can help but you never know until you ask and we as a church will make every effort to assist our own.
Good day and God Bless each of us!
Although this video speaks specifically about the August 4th primary in Missouri, most of the information is valid through at least the November General Election.
We are past the last day to register for the August primary. The last day to register for the November General Election is October 7, 2020.
If you are in need of a Notary, we can help!
Jumping right into it… Pastor McDaniel has tested positive for Covid-19. What does that mean for us? Well, I’ve done a bunch of reading trying to figure that out. Here we go.
The general tone of what I ‘ve read is if you think you’ve been exposed (see below), you should self-quarantine immediately. You should seek testing IF you are showing symptoms yourself OR it has been from 5 to 8 days since the exposure. If you seek testing before that with no symptoms, you may be lulled into a sense of security (false negative) because it takes a while for the viral infection to grow to the point it is detectable.
Per Pastor, there will be NO activities at the church for at least the next two weeks. Deacons check on your members. Members, reach out to your, or any deacon if you need prayer, assistance, or just need to talk!
Pray for Pastor and his family. Pray for the Church Family. Pray that this too should pass sooner rather than later.
“What constitutes close contact and what consitutes exposure to the coronavirus?
Close contact to COVID-19 occurs when you are within six feet of someone who is showing symptoms of COVID-19, for at least 15 minutes, when neither person is wearing a mask, and the infected person later tests positive for the coronavirus. This can also apply to situations in which the infected person did not show any symptoms at the time of exposure, but it is much less likely.
If either or both individuals were wearing face masks, it is not considered exposure.”

The Pastor and the Deacon Ministry of Mount Bethel successfully surprised Deacon and Sister Hollins with a plaque, flowers, and love offerings as a thank you for their service to and sacrifice for Mount Bethel.
Now that the surprise is behind us, if anyone would like to give a love token to the immediate past chairman of our Deacon Ministry and / or his wife, please feel free to write it on your envelope under "Other". We suspect some of you might want to be a blessing to them and we want you to have that opportunity but we didn't want the surprise to be spoiled so we kept it close (deacons only) at the outset.
We can't say enough about the dedication and commitment of the Hollins' but we can ask God's blessing upon them for all they have done and continue to do.
We'd like to say thank you to all who join us for our streaming services. Please feel free to share your experience with us and your positive comments or constructive criticism. This will help us do a better job in the future.
Thanks and God Bless!!!
p.s. though you're only able to comment about one service at a time, if you tried multiple services you can submit multiple surveys.
