Our Church Family

Please remember our church family in your daily prayers at mealtimes and during your personal devotions. Continue to remember those young and old with ongoing physical, spiritual, and emotional struggles.

Henry Geldof continues to wait for the results of various tests to determine the best course of action. May our gracious God provide the strength and patience he needs in this time.

We give thanks that the cancer treatments Cora Stol received were successful and the final tests showed the cancer was gone. Together with Ed and the family we thank God for his healing grace.

Please make the following changes to your church directory.

Bethel News

Next Sunday, September 4th 

We read from Genesis 45 and see the Spirit filled goodness of Joseph to his brothers as an example of the fruit of Spirit. In our evening service we read from 1 Peter 2:4-10 and testify to being the “People of God” in our modern culture. Pastor Mike will lead our worship.

Bethel September Newsletter: 

After taking a break for the summer, it is time to get back to the monthly newsletters. Thank you for your patience as we dealt with a busy summer and family commitments. We look forward to a new season of the Bethel Newsletter and hope you will continue to give us items to include. As we begin the new year in school and with the education here in church, we encourage you to send us a note about the plans for your program for the coming year. Tell us about your joys as well as your prayer needs. We look forward to being able to keep the family of Bethel informed and being able to pray for and support one another. We plan to produce the next newsletter on September 1st. Please have your contributions delivered to the newsletter team by Monday, August 29th. If there is anyone in the congregation who would like to be involved with this endeavour – please talk to one of us. We would love to have you. Harriet Luymes, Ann Wildeboer and Anita Geldof

The Persecuted Church


A violent attack against minority Degar Montagnard Christians in the central highlands of Vietnam took place in July, leaving 16 Christians severely injured. One Christian man remains under arrest, his condition unknown. On July 7th at approximately 8 p.m., Vietnamese security forces and police descended upon a worship service and began kicking and beating the attendees. Security forces threatened the villagers, stating: "If anyone worships like this way, we will return to arrest you all and put you in prison for five years." Of the Christians attacked, 10 men and two women were beaten to the point of unconsciousness. Pray the Lord will bring swift and complete healing to those who were injured. Pray for the release of the believer who was arrested. Ask the Lord to strengthen these believers. Pray Christians in Vietnam will continue to meet together in spite of the opposition. Pray for the perpetrators of this attack.
