·        The Tuesday morning Men’s Bible Study is inviting all Bethel men to join them in the Fireside Room as they begin a new season. No more excuses! It is time to listen to that little voice in your head that keeps telling you to get involved and join a Bible study. No books to read, no preparation, all you do is just show up and contribute as you wish. Generally we read our passage, discuss the guide questions and ask ourselves how God’s word is applicable to our lives here in Lynden. We close in prayer and are out the door by 7:30 AM. We begin at 6:30 AM, this Tuesday, Sept. 11. Hope to see you there!

·        Wednesday evening Bible Study is starting up again on Wednesday, Sept. 19, 7:00 pm, at Arnold Folkertsma's home. We will be using a Max Lucado study entitled "Anxious for Nothing". Come and join us. Refreshments will be provided. Any question or direction please call 739-7452.

GEMS: We are very excited to begin our year and learn about how to "Be a Blessing!" Come at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 24 to the church basement for our garden party kick-off! It's a great time to invite a friend to GEMS as well! Parents: you can drop off/pick up like a regular GEMS meeting, but when you come in to pick up your daughter, please fill out a registration form and pick up a calendar for the year.

CADETS: All boys in 1st -8th grade are invited as we will kick off the season at Meenderinck’s pond tomorrow from 6:30 until dusk. Moms, dads, sisters and brothers are welcome for a fun night of fishing and swimming, along with hot dogs and chips. We will use this opportunity to sign up all cadets and update emails. Any questions - contact Brian Stokes.

BETHEL QUILTERS  welcome all ladies interested in quilting. Our first time will be Thursday, Sept. 20, at 1pm and we will meet every other week. For more information call Bev Nunnikhoven or Sharon De Vries.


MOM’S TIME OUT is starting soon and our response this year has been overwhelming! We have reached the limit of how many moms and children we can take with our current volunteer staff. We would love to have you join us in this exciting ministry. The pay isn’t great but the benefits are amazing! Lots of hugs and smiles from cute kids and a great fellowship time with yummy snacks after the job is done. The time commitment is 1.5 hours twice a month. We would love to start a sub list too if you can’t commit to being at every meeting; we still can use you! Sign up at the back table or talk to Dee, Mandy, Carissa or Marcia. 


WOMEN’S RETREAT: We are excited for our upcoming retreat on March 22-23, 2019 at Cedar Springs. We are in the process of planning a great time of fellowship, fun and spending time learning more about our Savior. This is a great opportunity to make new friends and deepen current friendships. Our speaker this year will be Shilo Taylor. Look in your church box for our Save the Date card. To help with the cost of this retreat we will be having a Soup Supper on Tuesday, September 25 from 5-7pm. Please join us!
