December 31 Bulletin


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.

Congratulations to Helena Kits and Jenny Bajema who celebrate their birthdays on Wednesday. To each of you we pray for a wonderful day with family and friends and may our Lord richly bless the both of you daily! J

Dear Bethel Congregation: Thank you so much for coming together to give the Community of Lacombe a beautiful Christmas Dinner. People were so appreciative of the excellent food and wonderful atmosphere. First of all thank you for sponsoring this event. Thank you to those who hung posters, made special desserts, prepared food on Christmas Eve, loaned tablecloths, and helped on Christmas day with cooking, serving, emceeing, playing music, clearing tables, socializing, washing dishes and clearing the kitchen. 11 people helped on Christmas Eve and 39 on Christmas Day. We served over 250 people on Christmas Day. It was good to work together to spread the Christmas message to our neighbours.

Do remember those who are unable to worship regularly with us: please keep Jenny Bajema, Klaas Boskers, Rena DeRuiter, Lea Dykstra and Ernie Stebner in your prayers.

Pray for our missionaries around the world.
