The Best of Bethel
- Engaging in Ministry -
What’s going on at Bethel? With two years of disorientation for all of us, our church family has had to pivot and restore rhythms of ministry. While the importance of worship remains central to our calling as a congregation, the programs, teams, community-building, and serving opportunities are rebuilding. We want you to know what opportunities are happening at Bethel and how you can get involved. By sharing your gifts, you continue to help Bethel’s ministry thrive so that others may experience the power of God’s great love in Jesus Christ.
Throughout the program year (September 2022- June 2023) we will offer the “Best of Bethel”, a monthly gathering of learning what is happening at Bethel, increasing our vision for new ministries in our congregation and renewing our investment in the life of the congregation.
Each month’s gathering will be fun, informative, and a way to grow in your connection with Bethel. Randomly assigning the alphabet to each month will mean a personal invitation to a specific month’s session, but if that month doesn’t work for you consider yourself invited to any of the following months’ gatherings. Just RSVP so we can be prepared to welcome you!
Take a look at the information below so you know what to expect. We can’t wait to have you join us for conversation, food, and fun! Let me know if you have any questions. See you soon!
