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, February 14
LENT IN PLAIN SIGHT
God is often at work through the ordinary: ordinary people, ordinary objects, ordinary grace. Through the ordinary, God communicates epiphanies, salvation, revelation, and reconciliation. It is through the mundane that we hear God's quiet voice.
In this devotion for the season of Lent, Jill J. Duffield draws readers' attention to ten ordinary objects that Jesus would have encountered on his way to Jerusalem: dust, bread, the cross, coins, shoes, oil, coats, towels, thorns, and stones. In each object, readers will find meaning in the biblical account of Jesus' final days. Each week, readers encounter a new object to consider through Scripture, prayer, and reflection. From Ash Wednesday to Easter, Lent in Plain Sight reminds Christians to open ourselves to the kingdom of God.
You are invited to purchase this book as a devotion for the Lenten season. We will be using these "objects" each week as part of our virtual midweek worship experiences.
Ash Wednesday is February 17 and begins six weeks of Lent. We will offer a virtual Ash Wednesday service at 7:00pm. During the day we will be distributing "Ash Wednesday Take Home Ashes" to be picked up at Bethel for use at home with family that evening during worship.
We will subsequently offer additional virtual midweek worship experiences February 28, March 3,10,17, 24 and 31.
Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday, March 28.
Maundy Thursday is April 1. Good Friday is April 2. Easter Sunday is April 4.
At this time all services will be virtual. However, as Covid-19 is a fluid situation, things could change, especially as warmer weather arrives. It is possible some of these services will be outside and our hope is to do so as soon as possible.
