Sunday Bulletin



 It’s time for new groupings.  The next round for Bethel’s “Dinners for Six (or so)” will be during February, March and April.

We’ll link people into groups of about six, each with a mix of singles, couples or families willing to take turns hosting the meal in each other’s homes for the next three months.  Then we’ll take a month off and form new groups for June, July and August.

Even if you don’t see yourself hosting your group right now, sign up and we’ll make certain you are included!  This way, we’ll have an opportunity to build new friendships, and encourage one another in the Lord as urged by Hebrews 10:24-25.

To maintain flexibility, groups are free to select a day and time for dinner.


Indicate your interest now by signing up on the bulletin board.  Please direct questions to Nancy Knapp at: 586-776-9672.

Verse for the Week

 Psalm 139:6-8 

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it.  Where shall I go from your Spirit?  Or where shall I flee from your presence?  If I ascend to heaven, you are there!  If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
