MINISTRIES

Discipleship

Bethel’s ministries are focused upon discipleship, fellowship and outreach.

In discipleship we seek to train our members to be faithful followers of Christ by teaching them to observe all that Christ has commanded and to love God with all their heart and to walk in holiness.

In our fellowship we nurture our mutual growth as the communion of saints through love, prayer, service, encouragement, fellowship and gifts.

In outreach we answer God’s call to love our neighbor, to testify to our hope in Christ, to be salt and light in the world, to partner with those who spread the gospel, and to pray to the Lord for his harvest.

Men’s Bible Study

The Men’s Bible Study in the Gospel According to Matthew will begin on September 18. All men are welcome to attend on Tuesday evenings at 7:15 p.m.

Women’s Bible Studies

The Women’s Bible Study groups will begin with a two-week workshop September 5 & 12 on “Profiting from your Bible Reading” led by Anna Carini. She will lead a discussion on how to apply Scripture to our everyday lives by seeing Christ throughout different parts of the Bible. All women are welcome to the workshop, whether you are able to attend the fall Bible study or not. The group will meet at the church, 9:30-11:00 a.m. with a nursery available.

A study in the Gospel According to Matthew will start the following week, September 18 and 19. Consider joining a Tuesday evening group (7:15 p.m.) or a Wednesday morning group (9:30-11:00 a.m., with nursery available).

Men’s Breakfast

This fall the men will be reading The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis. Thoughtful Christians have prized this short book for Lewis’ insights into friendship, affection, romance and Christian love, and also for Lewis’ expose’ of false-loves like jealousy, selfishness, pride and sentimentality. Amidst all the current discussions about identity and friendship few books would qualify as more relevant or more helpful.

All men are welcome. Our first meeting is Saturday, September 8 at 7:30 a.m. and we will meet twice a month through November.  Check the calendar for meeting times and contact one of our pastors to purchase a copy of the current book.

Fellowship

Fellowship Dinner

Following Sunday School, the second Sunday of select months, join us for a fellowship dinner. Details can be found in the morning bulletin and on the calendar.

Pizza & Prayer

In the early days of the church we read that, “they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” (Acts 2:42) Devotion to fellowship and prayer still marks the church today. Bethel’s “Pizza & Prayer” presents an opportunity for the members of our church to enjoy a meal together and share in prayer afterwards.

We meet on Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. for pizza and prayer at 6:45 p.m. A nursery is provided. Please call ahead, 630.665.5577, if you would like to share in the pizza.
