Information About Our Special Events
For Easter/ Resurrection Sunday
April 12, 2020

Dear Bethel Baptist Church Family.

This week is such a special week in the life of a child of God. This is the week we celebrate Jesus ‘ last week upon this earth: His death upon the cross and His Resurrection from the Grave. If Jesus had not died and shed His blood on the cross AND rose from the dead, we would be lost and on our way to an eternal Hell. Hallelujah, Praise the Lord Jesus did all this FOR us because He loves us. The empty grave proves Victory in Jesus. We are so excited about celebrating the Resurrection of our Saviour every Sunday, but especially on Easter Sunday. It is with a saddened heart that we cannot have Easter Sunday services in our church building with our Church family, but we can still rejoice in the LORD, Praise & Honor the Lord, and be able to hear the Word of God proclaimed on line. We sure love and miss our Church family dearly. Please know that ALL of you are on our minds, in our hearts, and in our prayers. We KNOW God is in control. He loves us, and He is going to see us through this present difficult time.

We are looking forward to meeting back together in our Church building with our Church family having services the way God wants it to be. We pray all of you have a Wonderful day this Sunday rejoicing in your Resurrected Saviour.

Love & Miss you all! Pastor Jon Swope

We encourage you to watch and to invite friends to join in also for both services. We plan to incorporate Music specials into our live streamed services starting this Sunday. We are very thankful for our tech team who have worked hard in working with technology to be able to get our services up and running on line.

You & Your Family can come by the Church from 8: 00 a. m. – 10: 30 a. m.
