During Covid-19, our policy is for all people to WEAR MASKS and SOCIAL DISTANCE for the duration of any worship/fellowship where we are gathered in person!

  
Weekly Devotions



Pastor Dave offers weekly devotions called "Church Where You Are" for individuals and families.  If you are unable to be at worship on Sunday, or if you are simply looking for a weekly family devotional, "Church Where You Are" is located on our Bethel website each week.


Worship on Sunday, January 24

 

Join us THIS SUNDAY (January 24 @ 9:30am) for worship via our Facebook page, YouTube channel or via the LIVE WORSHIP link on the Bethel website


OFFICIAL NOTICE: UPCOMING CONGREGATIONAL MEETING


The Congregational Meeting will be held on February 7th at 11am.

Written notification will be going out and a Zoom link will follow.


ADULT CONFIRMATION CLASS


Pastor Dave will be offering an "Adult Confirmation" class called "By Heart".  It will focus on the Small Catechism.  You will need to purchase the book to participate. 


You can find out more via the following link: By Heart

The class will begin during Lent, take place via Zoom (at least until we can safely gather together), and will meet at a day/time to be determined by those who choose to participate.  If you have never "taken Confirmation" or if you did it so long ago and you want a "refresher" this class will be for you.  It will focus on our core Lutheran theologies and explore them in a meaningful and conversational way.  Most likely this will be an 8-10 week commitment.

I hope that you will consider it and if you have questions, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Blessings,
Pastor Dave
