2nd Sunday of Easter
April 19, 2020
Pastor: Ralph Wrightstone BULLETIN Music Director: Travis Oaks
Too often we think of the Easter Sunday celebration's being over when the last egg has been gathered and pictures have been taken. Actually, in the Christian calendar, the Easter Season goes on for 6 weeks, for the time Jesus spent on earth following the resurrection. In fact, every Sunday of every year has been traditionally set aside as a time for celebrating the resurrection event, and every day is to be lived with the promise of an eternal new day ahead. Happy Easter. A new service will be available here before 10:00 am each Sunday so you may "gather" for an Early Service at 10:00 or the traditional service at 11:00 ...actually it will be available here at any time all week. We hope that you will find it a refreshing place to come into God's house.
NOTE: Each part of the service consists of an audio file and, for most, a Link to a pdf file of "projection slides". Click on the symbol to play the audio file under a separate browser tab or in a new window. Then select the "Bethel April 19,2020 Service" browser tab or return to this window to open the Link to the "slides". It is best to stop the playing of one Audio segment and close its tab or window before starting another.
Thank you for coming. Our prayer will be that we will soon gather again for worship in Bethel's Sanctuary, but intil then we'll be here for you on Sunday morning.
