Greetings Bethany Family and Friends,
Pastor James and the Official Board of Bethany Baptist Church are deeply saddened to announce the transition of Deacon Charles Johnson, Chairman Emeritus. For three decades, he stood by Pastor James and supported him in every endeavor.
For more than thirty years, Deacon Johnson faithfully served the membership of Bethany Baptist Church. He was not just a hearer of the Word but also a doer. Deacon Johnson poured into the lives of preachers, deacons and all he came in contact with consistently. Over the years, he served communion to the sick and shut-in, taught, cared for God’s house, ministered through song, and loved people. Words cannot truly express all Deacon Johnson meant to Pastor James, the Bethany family and friends.
We know that he now has moved from labor to reward and he rests in the arms of our Lord and Savior. Our love, prayers and condolences extend to the entire Johnson family. May you remember all Deacon Johnson taught you, and may the God of all Comfort meet your every need.
Deacon Johnson, take your rest, and well done! We salute the divinity in you!
More information is forthcoming about the viewing and celebration of life.
Pastor James & The BBC Family
