WORSHIP SCHEDULE: Three of the four Care Groups are invited to our worship services each Sunday, beginning today. Council would love to see people in every open pew! Here is the schedule for the next four Sundays:
• Today, groups 1,2,3
• Nov. 1: groups 2,3,4
• Nov. 8: groups 1,3,4
• Nov. 15: groups 1,2,4
Please wear a mask and maintain proper distance between households. We will not turn anyone away from any service, even if you are scheduled for another week.
STAFF APPRECIATION: Let's celebrate our Bethel staff next Sunday, November 1! Be sure to express your appreciation to Pastor Steve, Sherry Vos, Elaine Vos, Pam Korthuis, and Marv and Karen Apol. We are richly blessed by their faithful service.
TO THE CONGREGATION: Thank you for your incredible support of our GEMS program through prayers and the Butterbraid/Cookie Dough fundraiser! We are so blessed by you! Next month, the GEMS will again be putting together shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. However, this year we will be simplifying our process in order to more easily follow Covid-19 regulations. We will be doing 30 boxes, all for GIRLS ages 5-9. If you would like to contribute monetarily to this project, please place money/checks in Box #10 (payable to Bethel GEMS, with a note that it's for shoeboxes) by November 9. If you have any questions, please talk to Mandy Van Noort, Mary Kok or Julie Ball. Thank you so much!
WORLD HUNGER: Did anybody eat foo-foo for dinner this week? Not sure what that is? It's not too late to pick up a World Hunger devotional and find out. We will take a collection next week that will go directly to World Renew's work with families like the ones you've met during your devotion time.
HELP STRUGGLING FAMILIES: We will be collecting toiletries, diapers, toilet paper and school supplies for Lynden School District Community Services for the next two weeks. Donations can be put in the box in the library. Monetary gifts will also be accepted and can be placed in Dolores Bosman’s mailbox, number 12.
PLEASE REMEMBER THE MEMBERS OF OUR CONGREGATION
living at Meadow Greens, Christian Health Care Center, Glorious Adult Family Home, and at home.
THANK YOU: The deacons gratefully acknowledge the September offerings. (See printed bulletin.)
