Good News And Information

BUILDING FUND ENVELOPES -  We now have envelopes for the Building Fund Offering.  These will help our Treasurer keep the offerings separate from the general offering. Please see Prue Carpenter or one of the Ushers for these envelopes.



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.



Bulletin Announcements:  Please have announcements to the bulletin to Elaine or Pastor Steve by Tuesday evening. We are now preparing the bulletin on Wednesday morning.




Here is a link to the NALC website.  Please take a look at it for Updates and Newsletter info concerning the NALC





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. 



 4 Teachers are needed…..Bethel has a need for more Sunday School

teachers in the Adult, Young Adult, High school and 4th and 6th Grade Classes.   Rally Day is coming up in September and we would like to have teachers for all classes. Please prayerfully consider how you can serve in our congregation in this way.
