What to Expect on a Sunday

Bethel Brandon Drive-In

During the MB Public Health Orders in effect from April 28 to May 25, 2021, Bethel Brandon is excited to have a Drive In Service on Sundays.

 

What time is Drive-In Church?

Starts at 11 a.m. in the main parking lot so get here early to get a good spot. 

 

What is the parking like?

Pull into the main parking lot on 440 Richmond Ave. and parking attendants will guide you to a free spot. You can stay in your vehicle or directly outside your vehicle on the drivers side two meters (six feet) from other persons who arrived in a different vehicle.

 

Where do I listen?

Tune your radio to 89.3 FM to listen in.

 

What will the Drive In look like?

We will start with a few announcements followed by a couple of songs from under the front entrance canopy. After that, one of our Pastors will share a message to challenge and encourage us. All together we will be about 45 minutes.

 

What are you doing in response to COVID-19?

Our priority is to create a safe and enjoyable experience here at Bethel Brandon.  Just a few of the actions we are taking:

  • We have increased the routine cleaning of high-touch, hard surface areas.

  • Physical distancing of two meters.

  • Providing hand sanitizer at all entrances and main areas of the building.

  • Following all recommendations of the local health authority.

  • Everyone, except children under five (5) years of age, must wear a mask when inside the church building. For exceptions and more details, please visit our Covid-19 Page.

  • During a Drive In

    • You can stay in your vehicle or directly outside your vehicle on the drivers side two meters (six feet) from other persons who arrived in a different vehicle. 

    • Masks and registration are not required. Masks are required if you are less than two meters from someone not in your household.

How should I dress?

You'll notice that everyone is dressed comfortably, in anything from jeans and sneakers to suits or office casual.  You should wear what you're comfortable wearing.

 

What's the music like?

The service usually begins with some upbeat music.  The worship team is made up of very gifted musicians. We sing most of the current music and some older hymns too.  We normally use a variety of instruments including piano, drums, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass and occasionally violin.  During our drive-in service, it might look a little different.

If you don't know the songs, feel free to just listen.  We also livestream our Sunday 11 a.m. service, so you will see a few video cameras on stands.

 

Will we ask for money?

We do provide an opportunity for our regular attendees to give an offering each week.  We believe that tithes and offerings are an important part of the believer's relationship with Jesus Christ.  Please don’t feel compelled to give, we hope you'll simply be our guest.  We do hope you'll fill out the digital connect card during the service. Text "connect" to 204-817-8333.  We would love to be in touch and see how you are doing and if there is anything we can pray for.

 

What is the preaching like?

The messages are interesting, enjoyable, and relevant to daily life.  The message will always be Biblically based.  Hopefully, you'll laugh at times and maybe feel a tug at your heart too – our goal is to invite you to a life that matters.

 

How long is it?

We focus on spending quality time in God's presence but also honouring your time.  The Drive-In will be about 45 minutes.  After the Drive-In, our attendants will help guide you out of the parking lot.
