Contact Bertha K for more information.


Orders Due For Devotional Guides

            Check your church mail box for an order blank and a letter of explanation regarding the ordering of personal devotional books. The information is much the same as last year. However the costs may have gone up slightly for some of the materials. Any worshipper in Bethel Church is welcome to place an order. We welcome new readers. If you did not receive the necessary information in your box, check with the church office.

            Please have the correct currency or a check for the proper amount with you when you order. Get your orders in to the church office no later than November 1. The Upper Room and Our Daily Bread devotionals will be put in your boxes when they arrive.
