All Are Welcome
Bethel's return to in-person worship has been a gradual process while we continue to follow the Washington state guidelines for Religious and Faith-based Organizations. We appreciate your patience as we safely return to in-person worship by following protocol and meeting the six feet of physical distancing requirements for our sanctuary space. We are no longer requiring reservations for in-person Worship services, but if we reach the maximum amount for the sanctuary we will have overflow seating in the narthex where you can view the service from a large screen. You can also view the service from home on our YouTube Channel or by listening in on the Phone Patch.
Dave Elson, Bethel's Council President and Dean Sutera, Bethel's Transition Team-Call Committee Leader would like to announce, after hard work and thoughtful prayer for discernment our call committee has come to a unanimous decision for the candidate of choice. The congregation voted on April 18th to call Pastor Lynne Ogren and the vote was a resounding yes. That call has also been accepted by Pastor Lynne and her first day at Bethel will be June 21st, with June 27th our first Sunday together. We ask for prayers as Pastor Lynne and her husband Eric begin the transition process to move to Washington. We give thanks to God for guiding us and for the Transition Team and Call Committee for their long hours of service.

Volunteers and kids are invited to climb aboard for mountains of fun at Rocky Railway! On this faith-filled adventure, we will discover that trusting Jesus pulls us through life’s ups and downs.
We are in the early stages of planning a modified in-person VBS! We will need to keep the number of registrations in a smaller amount in order to stay safe and follow the faith-based protocols for Washington state so we will only be able to accept pre-registered students. So don't delay and sign up today! Registration closes on June 13th so that we can have time to make sure we have enough volunteers in place for the number of students attending. Crew Leaders are an important role for VBS. Please prayerfully consider being a Crew Leader. It will be an opportunity you won't want to miss! Help us introduce children and youth to a deeper relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
•Social distancing will be practiced and encouraged throughout the morning.
•Multiple handwashing stations will be onsite.

What We Believe
We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; The third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit; the holy catholic church, the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
