PROFESSION OF FAITH: We give glory to God this week as we celebrate Michael DeYoung, Katie Hiemstra and Brooklynn Sipma making profession of faith. Since their baptisms their parents and Bethel have been preparing and praying for these young people in anticipation of this day. As we worship, they have each picked a favorite song to give God glory with. Welcome to family members and friends of Michael, Katie and Brooklynn! We celebrate with you! 

HELP BACKPACK BUDDIES: During the month of March, we will be collecting cans of tuna for the Backpack Buddies program at Lynden School District. Backpack Buddies helps keep underprivileged children nourished on the weekends when there are no school meals. Please place your cans of tuna in the box in the church library. Questions? Contact Sue Meenderinck or Joan Vander Haak.
