Announcements

THIS MORNING we celebrate our Bethel GEMS program. Welcome to each one of our GEMS and their families.   


TODAY AND NEXT SUNDAY we welcome Pastor Aaron Walters of The Table in Bellingham.  


STARTING NEXT WEEK, MAY 1, deacons will resume taking the offering during the service and the offering baskets will be removed from the foyer. If you are unable to attend, you are still welcome to mail your offerings and budget envelopes to the church office. 


GEMS FUNDRAISER TACO NIGHT: Join us Thursday, May 5, from 5-7 pm for our Taco Night Fundraiser Dinner, finally returning after two years! Let us handle your supper plans! We are excited to gather and enjoy food and fellowship. We appreciate your support of our GEMS club as we raise funds to sponsor our students at the Esther School in Zambia. 


REMINDER: Next week is our last Sunday School class of the season.  


THANK YOU to all who participated in our Lent and Easter worship services. We were blessed by your readings, prayers, music, sign language, bells, artistic eyes and hands, and behind-the-scenes help! Thank you for your willingness to serve! ~Elaine
