Weekly Announcements


Dear Bethanians,

Thanks to so many who made our Easter Sunday the joyful celebration it was.  To Sylvia and her musical leadership, including the return of the Bethany Choir to our worship!  What a treat that was!  Also, to Jeff Jensen and the Bethany Brass, whose presence and sound always creates a wonderful festive mood for Easter.  We are also grateful to our sound engineers: Jeff Jensen, Doug Dudgeon, and Mike Curtis, and to all our parking attendants, who make sure all is safe and in good order in the parking lot.  And to all who contributed Easter Lilies to decorate our outdoor space.  Christ is risen, indeed!

Our worship continues this Sunday in our drive-in setting.  Come and join us for "Holy Hilarity" Sunday, otherwise known as the Second Sunday of Easter, this Sunday, April 11th at 10am in the Bethany parking lot.  Our online worship collaboration with Poulsbo First Lutheran continues each Sunday at 8:30 and 11am, and then available streaming.  Go to our website: bethanyofbainbridge.org.


Bethany is actively seeking candidates for its Church Administrator position.  Please feel free to share our posting for this 20 hour/wk. in your personal networks, and invite qualified candidates to apply.  Office emails and phone messages will be monitored regularly by Pastor Paul.

Bible-study writings: The series of writings from the Monday Morning Women's Bible study continues with a piece from Sharon Wilson. Members answer what they love about Bethany and the ELCA. Read what Sharon had to say at bethanyofbainbridge.org.

Thanks to Helpline House, Bethany has enough boxes for our upcoming Lutheran World Relief Shipment.  Executive Director of Helpline, Maria Metzler, dropped off a dozen on her way home the other day.

Enjoy this beautiful weather.

Pastor Paul
