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.
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.
