Welcome to worship at Bethel. Feel free to bring your young children to our staffed nursery. All regular attenders and visitors are welcome to complete the CONNECTION card in this bulletin. Praises & blessings that you write on the cards will be shared in our bulletin to encourage one another. Prayer concerns listed on the cards will be kept confidential unless specified otherwise. Completed cards should be placed in the offering plates during collection. 

Our May 13th Kids Sunday was a huge blessing from the food to the fellowship to the worship! THANK YOU to everyone who brought food, to those who coordinated and served that awesome spread, to those who helped during worship, to the many kids who shared their gifts in a lively worship service and to all who attended. Most of all, we praise God for the time together in fellowship to glorify Him!
