Last Sunday's Service at Bethel
6th Sunday of Easter
May 17, 2020
Pastor: Ralph Wrightstone Bulletin . Photos Music Director: Travis Oaks
The pictures above were taken at last week's open-air service at Bethel. The 22 who gathered there for this occasion were treated to another spirit led service. We will continue having services both at Bethel and online as we venture into the "new world" that will follow the on-going pandemic. For those unable to attend the service at the church, a new service will be available here online before 10:00 am each Sunday morning, using the same program as the on-site service. So you may "gather" here 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 May 17,2020 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.
