2020-08-02 Bulletin

Next Sunday, August 9th 

We welcome back Pastor Jake from his holiday. He will be delivering a message from Amos 5:18-27, Let Justice Roll on Like a River.


Please remember our church family in your daily prayers, at mealtimes and during your personal devotions. Remember those who are unable to worship regularly with us: Jennie Bajema and Bill Wildeboer. Pray also for those who struggle in silence with ongoing physical, spiritual, and emotional issues. Continue to pray for our missionaries around the world, Diana Boot, Margaret Njuguna, Albert & Carolyn Strydhorst and John & Marian VanderMeer.

Thank you from World Renew: As we continue to seek God's will in a world being shaped by cries for racial reconciliation and a worldwide pandemic, we are thankful for partners like you joining us to work together to demonstrate Christ's love. During the first half of 2020, Bethel CRC gave $5,563.00 to Canadian Foodgrains Bank and our program fund. Your support is helping vulnerable communities around the globe receive life-saving programming. We are grateful to God for you! As a worldwide church, may we continue to be united in Spirit and bound together with peace, called to a glorious hope for the future (Ephesians 4:3-4).
