Just a reminder – If you would like to reserve the Fellowship Hall or Parish House for special family events, please remember to put this on the Calendar in the Fellowship Hall or speak with Nita.

The Worship and Music Committee will begin work on the List of those serving in various positions during our Worship Services.  If you would like to add your name to assist in any way or wish to have your name removed, please see Prue Carpenter as soon as possible. The responsibilities of our Ushers, Acolytes, Greeters and Nursery attendance are very important and we hope everyone will volunteer in some way as we serve God in these jobs.

 

 

 

 

 

The people of Bethel are willing to Serve as Jesus commanded us to do.  There are many in our congregation that occasionally need a helping hand with minor repairs around their homes or work outside that they are no longer physically able to handle on their own.  There is a sheet in the Narthex where you can list such needs.  We hope to be able to branch out in our community in the future to also our serve our neighbors needs. If you know of such a need, please also list this on the sheet. 

 


 

Thank you… The Family of Violet Kiser would like to thank everyone for the cards, visits and calls during Violet’s hospitalization and stay at Peak Resources.  They also appreciate the food and meal provided for their family after the service. We love you all!
