WE MOURN the passing of Harriet Haak last Saturday but rejoice in her long anticipated homegoing. We also offer our Christian sympathy and prayers to Marilyn in the loss of her aunt.  

BONNIE LITORJA is grateful for all the concern and prayers from the Bethel family since she suffered a mini stroke. Please continue to keep her in your prayers as she regains her strength and deals with some fatigue. 

SHORT TERM TASK FORCE: The Admin Team is seeking volunteers for a short-term task force to evaluate our existing landscaping around the church campus, give us a recommendation on removing and replacing shrubs etc. and coordinate the necessary work to complete this task by late summer or early fall. If you are willing and/or interested contact one of the Admin Team members: Pastor Bryan, Marilyn Haak, Keith Korthuis, Randy Knutzen, Jacob Steiger or Alvin Vos.  

TUESDAY MORNING Ladies Bible study will not meet this week. 

NO SUNDAY SCHOOL for the next two weeks, April 2 and 9.

BACKPACK BUDDIES: During April we will be collecting single-serve cups/pouches (not boxes) of mac & cheese. These may not be available in all the Lynden grocery stores but are on the shelves at Walmart and Winco and can be ordered on Amazon. Your donations are greatly appreciated as we are now serving almost double the number of students we helped last school year, and more children are experiencing food insecurity.
