Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore. (Psalm 133:1-3)
After nearly a month and a half of being unable to meet together due to the emergency restrictions made in response to the COVID-19 situation, members of Bethany Baptist Church were finally able to physically assemble together again!
