Welcome to Bethel!
We will have our next congregational meeting on Feb 4 at noon. You can read the minutes from last August’s meeting in advance of the vote to approve them.
Our new Sunday morning study is The Hole in our Gospel. Is our faith only about going to church, studying the Bible, and avoiding the most serious sins—or does God expect more? Have we embraced the whole gospel or a gospel with a hole in it? Fifteen years ago Rich Stearns came face-to-face with that question as he sat in a mud hut in Rakai, Uganda, listening to the heartbreaking story of an orphaned child. In this study we will explore the ways that sharing the gospel is more than just converting people. Rich Stearns is the president of World Vision a Christian organization that helps people in crisis throughout the world. Pastor Ben leads this 6-week video study beginning Jan 14, in the Fireside Room.
