CHOIR will meet in the sanctuary today after church.
GOOD FRIDAY SERVICE: We look forward to celebrating the sacrament of communion on Good Friday. During this week you are invited to consider what Jesus has done for us by reading Matt 26:26-27:61. We prepare by reflecting on our personal need for Jesus' death, confessing our sin and putting our trust for life and death in him.
BAPTISM: On Easter Sunday Yuanita will be presenting her son Kairo Julius Gitamara for baptism. As a congregation we celebrate God's promises to Kairo, his family and Christ's church.
SENIORS: Please check your mailboxes today for a special invitation to the Bethel Seniors Dinner on Wednesday, April 26.
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.
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.
