Book Fair at Bethel Christian School will be this week, and will be open from 7:45 – 9:00 am Monday through Friday and on Thursday evening from 3:30 to 5:30
If you have a heart to help people and love fellowshipping with others, we have a job for you! Come Saturday, November 14th, and help us reach out and be a blessing to people in our community by raking their leaves. We will meet at the church at 9:00, and we will be working in the neighborhoods near the church. If you have any questions, call or text Ryan Warner (812) 779-4713. Don’t forget to bring your own rake.
Life Action Summit CD’s as well as several of the books the Life Action Team had for sale are now available in the Bethel Library. The Library is staffed on Sundays after the first service until 10:30, Wednesdays during school hours, and 6:00-6:25 on the nights that Awana meets. If you need any books or CD’s any other time, please contact Amy Pickersgill at the church. (Due to the possible high demand for the Revival CD’s, we will only be checking out 2 CD’s at a time per family.)
Beginning today through November 15, our church will be collecting canned corn, green beans & peas as well as packages of Ramen noodles. These items will be donated to the local Salvation Army food pantry. Please place these items in the boxes provided at the main entrance and the east entrance. Thank you.
Ladies Night Out will be at 6:00 pm Monday, November 2nd, at Hogg Heaven in Mt. Carmel. If you would like a ride, there will be ladies meeting at the church at 5:30.
If you would like to be involved in praying for our college students this year, please pick up a student profile packet and “adopt” a college student this year. The student profile packets will be on the table next to our Information Desk. If you have any questions please see Ryan Warner or contact him at 812-779-4713.
There are currently several small groups (3-7 men in a group) studying God’s Word and learning from each other. If you are interested in joining one of our men’s small group Bible studies, please contact our Men’s Ministry director Clint Williams at 270.314.0002 for more information.

INFECTIOUS DISEASES POLICY
It is the desire of this church to meet the spiritual needs of each individual who comes to the church seeking worship, fellowship and spiritual growth. While all persons who wish to participate will be welcomed, we have instituted precautions as established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to minimize the risk of spread of communicable diseases.
Enacting this policy will take the cooperation of the Church, Children’s ministry workers and the parents. Below are the parent’s guidelines as stated in the policy.
Children’s ministry workers consider the welll-being of your child a sacred trust. In the best interest of children and workers, we request that individuals with contagious illnesses or potentially contagious illnesses, whether they are children or ministry workers, refrain from participating in children’s ministry areas at the church.
- Fever above 100 degrees taken orally (must be normal for 24 hours before participating).
- Discharge from ears or eyes.
- Discolored mucous from the nose (not caused by teething).
- Skin lesions that blister.
- Undiagnosed rashes.
- Vomiting or diarrhea lasting several hours during the past 24 hours.
- Excessive signs of cold, tiredness, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, or coughing – any highly contagious disease such as chicken pox or pink eye.
As an additional precaution, we also ask that children refrain from bringing personal items such as stuffed animals, blankets, dolls, etc. into the classrooms.
A copy of the Infectious Diseases Policy in its entirety is available at the Information Center.
I find great resources from time to time through the different publications I receive.
