Bethel's Ministry Update - April 17, 2020

We just got to celebrate Jesus' resurrection together! We hope, as part of Bethel Church, you are encouraged and reminded on a regular basis that Jesus is for you, that God loves you more than you can imagine, and that this current state of the world is only temporary. It doesn't take away the pain, the uncertainty, the sickness and death, but it gives us hope for the future, hope for eternity and even hope for today.

Thank you for being the Church. Thank you for sharing the LOVE of CHRIST. Thank you for MAKING ROOM in your own lives for a person who needs hope, for a local business that temporarily closed, for a family that's struggling to balance work and distance learning, and an elderly neighbor who can't leave their house. We can still be the "Church Sent" six-feet apart, right?

Please consider replying to this email to share some creative ways that you've shared Christ's love or some stories that you've heard. Stories can bring us together, even when we're physically apart.

This week, we want you to know about FIVE (5) things:

1. BUSINESS MEETING / Sunday, April 26, 6:00 PM - Bethel's congregational business meeting is now scheduled for April 26 at 6:00 PM. We will be meeting via Zoom, an online meeting platform. A follow-up email will be sent to you next week with details and a link to join the meeting.

2. SUNDAY WORSHIP / Sunday, April 19 - We continue to worship online as we have been doing. Remember, we have other resources available to you and your family on our streaming page. Scroll down below the worship video for children's and youth resources, along with devotionals and resources for all ages.

4. GIVING - Bethel Church is blessed! You are a generous church, and ministry is continuing to happen in new and exciting ways! Worship, youth group, children's ministries, confirmation, small groups, are all happening online through our website, ZOOM meetings, mobile app and email. We've found ways to be together and see faces! Will you continue to pray that Bethel can find new and creative ways to BE THE CHURCH in the coming weeks and months?
