Our Church Family

Ann Vander Wal was thankful to God to return home from the hospital this week. We trust she can manage again on her own.

Craig Van Stryland was able to return home from the hospital on Friday. We pray that God will be with him and his family as he recovers from his surgery at home.

Ann Vander Wal and family would like to thank the congregation, as well as her friends, for the prayers, visits, and many tokens of kindness shown during Ann’s hospital stay. “We thank God for his healing and His grace.”

Do remember our seniors and shut ins in prayer: Tony & Henny Middag, Ann Vander Wal,

Tilly Biel, Lea Dykstra, Wigger Meindersma, and Herman Scholing Sr.

Remember our missionaries around the world. 

Bethel News

World Hunger Campaign

One in six people in our world do not have enough to eat. CRWRC invites you to share with them through this year’s World Hunger Campaign. Today you will find the devotional booklet, “Are You In?” in your church mailbox. There are daily stories that you can use at your own supper table, starting today and for the next 2 weeks. We will focus on World Hunger Sunday on November 14th and have a special offering for this cause on that day.

Next Sunday, November 7th

The Fellowship MLT is hosting a free breakfast. Come to church at 9:30 a.m. and enjoy some bagels, pastries, fruit, and fellowship! Hope to see you all there!

Next Sunday, November 7th 

We conclude our series on worship with the Disciples Year 2 book. We will consider session 5 as we are Sent forth to Serve (Luke 10:1-20). We go out strengthened in our faith through the Lord’s Supper. In the evening we reflect on “The nature and extent of Biblical Authority” as expressed in 1 Corinthians 2:6-16 and in the Belgic Confession, Article 5. Pastor Mike will lead the services.

Volunteer Link

Bethel continues to be a wonderful supporter of Volunteer Link here in Lacombe, not only financially, but also as church with many volunteers, helping those with needs here in our community. That being said, the needs in Lacombe continue to rise, and the volunteers have somewhat declined. If you have some spare time on your hands, even if it is only a half hour or an hour a week, you would be a wonderful asset to our Volunteer Link team. Bethel is also looking for a "church coordinator", someone to make a few phone calls and coordinate volunteers with those in need. If either one of these areas appeals to you please contact Herman Scholing Jr. at 403-782-2701. Thank-You

The Persecuted Church


Has imposed a massive fine on a Protestant man for owning a Christian film. Police raided Murat Jalalov's home in Tashkent -- apparently on the instructions of the National Security Service secret police. They confiscated 75 DVDs and CDs. The discs included the Uzbek version of "The Jesus Film." The confiscated materials were analyzed by the national state Religious Affairs Committee. The committee declared that the particular film "could be used among local ethnicities for missionary purposes" and was therefore banned. All confiscated materials were ordered to be destroyed. Please pray for the church in Uzbekistan. Thank the Lord for the faithfulness of the believers and their desire to spread the Gospel in spite of their restrictions. Pray for all those involved in church leadership and evangelization; may they be bold and courageous, yet wise and discerning.
