EvANGELism Cards
The Evangelism Committee, with the technical help of Harry Simmerman, has for you an easy way to send
electronic encouragement cards as well as other occasion e-cards (currently 16 cards in stock). Everyone loves receiving cards and these e-cards will make it easy for you to send right from the comfort of your home! (no postage necessary)
Just go to the church website and scroll down to the
Angel e-card Greetings option.
Shredding Event on May 1
The Bethlehem Green Team is hosting a Shredding Event on May 1, 9-12 to collect and recycle shredded paper. This is a drive-through, no one will need to leave their vehicle. Social distancing guidelines will be adhered to. Wear your masks.

EVERYONE in the communities surrounding
Smith Mountain Lake is invited to participate.
There is no charge, donations are accepted.

Whether you’re “spring, summer or fall cleaning” old office files, sorting out tax documentation, or just throwing away personal confidential files, you probably would feel better if those papers were shredded. You may bring papers, manila folders, including papers with staples - but no paper clips please.
See you Saturday!

Thanks for all your care and prayer for our Earth this month!
Let us continue to care for this gift that God has given us -
our beautiful home, the Earth!

Happy Birthday to YOU!
Thank you to everyone for your prayers, concerns, cards,
and care over the past few months as Bill had surgery and recovered. Thanks be to God for answers to prayer and for His loving care and the removal of Bill's cancer. We are so blessed to be surrounded by a loving church family at Bethlehem.
