To our Bethel Pastors,
Thank you – we appreciate you!
We are truly a fortunate congregation; God has richly demonstrated His great love for us by calling you to shepherd and care for us. Thank you for overseeing our spiritual growth, sharing in our joys, comforting us in sorrow, encouraging us in our struggles, and challenging us in our faith. We are grateful for your dedication and commitment to prayer, scripture, wise counsel, and patient love for the body of Christ as you serve and care for others day after day.
We are praying for you, for your families and your homes. We pray that God will be your refuge, and that He will protect you from the arrows of the enemy.
May the Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance on you and give you peace.
Pastors of Bethel – YOU ARE LOVED!
Chairman, Elder Board
