BARB CROSNO, who formerly attended Bethel, passed away on Monday. Barb moved to Portland a few years ago.
THIS MORNING we will be sharing communion. Using the center aisle, come to the front of church and return on the outside aisles. A rover will be available to direct and assist as needed. Please wait until everyone is seated to partake.
CONGREGATIONAL MEETING: We hope to see you at the Congregational Meeting this Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 7:00 pm, in the sanctuary! We will be voting on the Bethel CRC Restructuring Proposal, which will require a 2/3 majority of the votes to pass. If you cannot attend the meeting, please consider voting absentee. Council believes that this restructuring will help our ministries at Bethel to be more joyful, more effective, and more efficient! If you have any questions at all, or would just like to talk through the changes, please call or email any Council member.
ANYONE WANT TO FEED SOME FISH? In three weeks, we will be observing World Hunger Sunday and taking a collection on behalf of World Renew's work with our hungry brothers and sisters worldwide. Look for Peter Fish banks (in the narthex) and devotional books for both children and adults (in your mailboxes) today!! These are being distributed early since we are not meeting together as an entire church yet.
