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

Men’s Bible Study will resume in the fall.

Women’s Bible Studies

The Women’s Bible Study will resume in the fall.

Men’s Breakfast

Though we confess to be saved by God’s grace, we so often forget that we have been called to grow in that same grace. But how does one pursue a holiness anchored in the grace of God? Join us this fall for our Men’s Breakfast as we consider growth in grace using Jerry Bridges’ The Discipline of Grace: God’s Role and Our Role in the Pursuit of Holiness. The group will discuss the first two chapters on September 14, and will meet every other Saturday through December 7th.

Check the calendar for meeting times.

Fellowship

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 will begin meeting on Wednesday, September 4th at 6:00 p.m. for pizza, and gather to pray at 6:45 p.m. A nursery is provided. Please call or email ahead at 630.665.5577 or secretary@bethelopc.org if you would like to share in the pizza.
