Bethel celebrates 72 years
Between April 30 and May 28, Bethel Pentecostal Church in Kaladar is hosting special events both in their Sunday morning and evening services. The month long event begins with Jews forJesus doing a ‘Christ in the Passover’ service at 10:30 a.m. This 45 minute presentation will re-enact the Passover meal explaining the significance of it to Christians. The evening of April 30 will feature John Reid and Eagle Band in concert at 6:30 p.m. John has recently returned from a missions trip to Egypt . Pastor Vernon Scott will be doing bass guitar that evening.
May begins with Pastor Tom and Anne Kernohan returning to Bethel for the 10:30 service. In 2003, Bethel Pentecostal Church , Kaladar and Northbrook Pentecostal Church in Northbrook joined together to form one regional ministry centre, with a vision to effectively minister to our whole area. Tom and Anne were one of the last pastors to serve the Northbrook assembly. Since leaving our area, they have started a new church in Lakefield. On Sunday, May 7 at 6:30 p.m. they will be joined by their music team from Lakefield. Bethel has supported this new church financially and with prayer since its inception.
Sunday, May 14: Gordon Krause, who pastored Bethel in the ’80s and now is a teacher in a private Christian school, will be preaching in the morning and evening services. Gordon is a gifted musician and will be singing in the evening.
Our Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada District Presbyter Reverend Terry Pitt and his wife Ellen also pastored in Kaladar in the ’80s, and will be returning to Bethel on May 21. At the evening service they will be joined by a music team from their present church, Evangel Pentecostal Church in Kingston .
Rev. Lindsay MacPherson began preaching in a tent May 10, 1935, two weeks at Henderson , two weeks at Elm Tree and two weeks at Kaladar. This 91 year old will return to where he started out on Sunday, May 28, 10:30 a.m. The month long event will be concluded with a Gospel Sing done by the people of the area in the evening service.Other Stories this Week View RSS feed
