As we begin a New Year at Bethesda, we thank God for all blessings that he has bestowed upon us and realize
that with Him we can do all things and without Him we can do nothing. We count it a blessing to still have Reverend Raynard
Townsel as our Interim Pastor.
Our current enrollment for 2005 is twenty-nine (29). Recently, we lost 2 members. One of our members, Elder
Harry Carlos passed on January 1, 2005 and in March 2004, Mrs. Barbara Dyson Bridgeforth elected to move her membership to
worship with her husband at the Spring Hill Baptist Church in Blackstone, VA.
