2019-06-02 Bulletin


Next Sunday, June 9th

We continue our series in Acts, looking at various signs and wonders within the new Christian community as the early church was being established. We will be turning to Acts 2:1-13, What Does This Mean? as we turn to the Pentecost story and the pouring out of the Holy Spirit. We will also be celebrating the baptism of Nicole Elizabeth Zuidhof, daughter of Grant & Melanie Zuidhof and sister to Eric.

Next week we will be celebrating Pentecost and the sacrament of Baptism. Both of these are special moments that are connected with dreaming and hope. The Bible talks about the power of visions and dreaming and how this is a sign of life and hope in places like Joel 2. Pastor Jake would love to hear what you are dreaming of for Bethel and your own lives and is asking you to consider writing some of you dreams/visions down and placing them in the offering plate next week or even emailing them to Pastor Jake. He will then share some of these dreams (without names) in next month’s Bethel newsletter as he will be reflecting on the power of a dream for our church.

OUR CHURCH FAMILY

Please remember our church family in your daily prayers, at mealtimes and during your personal devotions. Continue to pray for Henry Geldof and Steve Ogi. Remember those who are unable to worship regularly with us: Jennie Bajema, Bill Wildeboer and Rena DeRuiter,. Pray also for those who struggle in silence with ongoing physical, spiritual, and emotional issues. I thank God, whom I serve, as my ancestors did, with a clear conscience, as night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers. 2 Timothy 1:3.

We have been very blessed during the time of Polly’s cancer journey. The support during the nearly 5 month journey has been very uplifting and, in some ways, a humbling experience. Sometimes it is easy to forget that we are part of a community of believers. To all who provided support by means of prayers, cards, words of encouragement, visits, and meals, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. God is in Control, to Him be the Glory. Pete and Polly Mooy

Pray For SYNOD 2019: Synod 2019 will meet on the campus of Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, from Friday, June 14th to Thursday, June 20th. Pastor Jake will be attending Synod this year; we ask that you remember him in his travels and his time at the meetings. May our God bless everyone attending!

Continue to pray for our missionaries around the world.

Living Members 

will be meeting the home of Alex & Ann Wildeboer tonight at 7 p.m. We will discuss lesson 4 from the study guide Discover James.

From the Office

Today in your mailboxes the new Bethel Directory has been delivered. Unfortunately I found my first discrepancy with a blue sign civic address number. Please change Walter & Ella Land, it should read 41219B Range Road 26-3. Please take a moment and read yours and if there are any number jumbles please let Dana know.

Dana will be preparing hospitality schedules in the coming weeks. 

Looking for more help in the nursery, coffee servers, greeters, ushers and lift operators. If you would like to add your name to any of these lists, contact Dana at the office. Please consider serving Bethel this way. Let’s all take part in making our worship services a more welcoming atmosphere for all, especially for our guests.

Prayer: 

When we look at our congregation what do we see? A Bundle of Needs or perhaps, Ten Thousand Reasons for our hearts to sing His praises? Either way, prayer for each other is always good and pleasing to God. As summer approaches, and we begin to think of all the things we can or want to do, the freedoms we have, please do not forget our brothers and sisters in the Lord who are kept prisoner, who suffer hardships, are homeless. Pray for them, in Jesus Name.
