Our Church Family

KEEP THE FOLLOWING members of our Bethel family in your prayers: 

• Yuanita who is at home recovering from Covid. We pray also that the baby she carries will continue to grow and be healthy.

• Hilda Zylstra who is hospitalized with an infection in her spine. Pray for recovery and relief from the pain she has been dealing with.  

• Arlene Noles who had surgery on Thursday to remove lymph nodes and a spot on her breast.


THANK YOU: The family of Janet Steiger would like to express its appreciation to Bethel church for all the prayers and support as we mourn her passing and celebrate her life. Thanks to Pastor Bryan, Pastor Homer, and all the other volunteers who made her memorial service a blessed time. Janet dearly loved and cared deeply for the people of this congregation. It truly is good to be a part of the Family of God. ~ Jacob and Donna Steiger, Rebecca Steiger, Eric Steiger, Peter and Jennifer Steiger and family, Denise and Renee Storteboom.

Announcements

TODAY we 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. 


THIS MORNING we begin a series in Revelation. Over the next few months, we will be considering the first 3 chapters of this book. In this portion we will be assured of the comfort and certainty we have as believers because of the work of Jesus. We will reflect on what it means to be a faithful church of Jesus Christ living in light of his return. Finally we will be equipped as his church to serve him here in Lynden, within our homes, vocations, and greater community.  


CORRECTION: Pastor Bryan’s phone number in the church directory is incorrect. The correct number is in the printed bulletin.
