Children’s Day ~ Today

            Our annual Children’s Day celebration at Bethel Church is today, May 22 at 10:00 a.m. There will be no Sunday School. A potluck meal will be served at 11:15 a.m. in the fellowship hall following the service.

Bethel’s Community Fellowship Meal

Thursday, May 26, 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.

            There have been some questions about the monthly meals. If you are not able to make a main dish casserole but would like to help in some way, you can still attend and be a goodwill ambassador to welcome people, sit and eat with them, and just get to know them. You can still pray for the people that come both before and after you meet them. If you want to contribute funds to help pay for the salad and ice cream, place your check in the offering with "Community Fellowship Meal" in the memo line.  

Congratulations To Our Graduates
