TODAY is the installation service for Pastor Bryan! The service will be led by Pastor Ken Boonstra and Pastor David Landegent. Pastor Landegent is retired from the Reformed Church in America and served in the Volga RCA for the past 10 years. He and his wife Ruth are now living in Salem, OR. We pray that God will be glorified this morning and, in the years, to come as we serve Him together.
WELCOME PICNIC: To continue our day of celebration, plan on attending the welcome picnic for the Dicks this afternoon at Berthusen Park, beginning promptly at 4 p.m. with the meal served immediately. You only need to bring lawn chairs.
NEXT SUNDAY we will have installation of new council members: elder Vern Meenderinck and deacons Carol De Young and Howard Nunnikhoven. Thank you to our retiring council members: John Schouten, elder; and Ken Herwerden and Norene Van Andel, deacons.
SING OLD FAVORITES: Come a bit early next Sunday morning and join in singing some old favorites before our worship service begins.
BIKE DAY-TRIP: A biking day on Lummi Island is planned for Saturday, July 23. We will leave Bethel at 10:30 in vans unless you take your own vehicle. Bikes will be placed in a trailer. If you need a bike, talk to Marv before July 23. The cost of the ferry is $8 round trip per person; anyone younger than 19 is free. Bring water and something to eat. For more information call Marv.
