2nd Sunday of EASTER!!!
Easter is a time for celebration. The old life is gone, a new life has begun. What was once hopeless is now bursting with joy. What was once dull and flat is now buzzing with energy and color.
This week we continue to discover what it means to be fully alive - how our belief unlocks a full, vibrant life that leaves a legacy. We also learn about "Doubting Thomas" - and learn something from him about faith...
Join us in worship at Bethel!
Bring your family and friends - all are welcome!
All are welcome. Join us for worship, celebration, fellowship and more!
