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

All men are welcome to attend the Men’s Bible Study in the Gospel According to Matthew meeting on Tuesday evenings at 7:30 p.m.

Women’s Bible Studies

A study in the Gospel According to Matthew is underway. Consider joining a Tuesday evening group (7:30 p.m.) or a Wednesday morning group (9:30 a.m., with nursery available).

Men’s Breakfast

Death is a peculiar thing. Since it is our fierce enemy we “rage, rage against the dying of the light.” Death pays the final wages to every sinner, and yet every Christian may say, “Death, be not proud… for thou art not so.” It has no claim on those who hope in Christ and yet life is not lived rightly unless one faces it honestly. Matthew McCullough helps us to take stock of death, biblically and practically, in his book Remember Death, which the men will read this spring.

All men are welcome.  The book’s six chapters will be discussed successively at our six meetings at 7:30 a.m. beginning February 2. 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.

Call 630.665.5577 for more information.

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.
