FRIENDSHIP SUNDAY

Make plans to join us on Sunday, June 2 for a special Bethel Friendship Sunday and invite your friends to come to church with you.  The morning message will be an encouragement to each of us, especially those without a close relationship to our heavenly Father.

Following the morning worship service, a potluck lunch will be served.  Please sign up on the bulletin board to indicate your attendance and also sign on a separate sheet if you are able to bring a dish.

Morning Worship Service

Sunday, May 19, 2019

The prelude to worship is a time of preparation of heart to meet with our holy God in worship.  As such this is not a time for casual conversation.  As the music plays, worshipers are kindly asked to quietly pray or meditate on Scripture, so an atmosphere of reverence will lead into worship.  Upon the conclusion of the worship service we encourage you to take time to visit with each other and to greet our visitors.
