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, September 20

 

Join us THIS SUNDAY (September 20 @ 9:30am) for OUTDOOR WORSHIP.  Our worship will also be streamed live via our Facebook page, YouTube channel or via the LIVE WORSHIP link to the Bethel website and will be available after the live stream in all three places. 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Weather permitting, we will start holding outdoor worship every Sunday, starting September 13 at 9:30. Pastor Dave will make the call to cancel outdoor worship by Saturday evening in the event of inclement weather.

Volunteers are needed to help Dave Shoberg set up for outdoor worship each week. Volunteers are asked to be there at 8 am.

Volunteers are also needed to help Edie McGoff with traffic control, setting up the table (hand sanitizer, communion cups, offering baskets, song sheets), taking temperatures (using a touch-less thermometer) and clean-up after.

If you are willing to help, please email Pastor Dave.

JONES/JOYNER MUSIC FUND


The Jones/Joyner Music Fund honors the outstanding ministries of two individuals:  Larry Jones and Vernon Joyner.  Both led Bethel's music ministry.  The fund was established after Larry's sudden passing in the late 1990s, to support modest scholarships for university music students to play during worship and provide funds to add musicians for special services.  When Vernon Joyner retired, the fund was rededicated in recognition of his tremendous contribution to our music program.  Through the generosity of the congregation, this fund has brought us many talented musicians who have enhanced our worship music each Sunday.  

Our current Jones/Joyner scholars are flutist Charlene Romano and bassist Alex Kimble.  

Please consider contributing to the Jones/Joyner Music Fund, as funds are running low.

Bright Futures - School Supplies


Due to COVID-19 Bright Futures Frederick/Winchester has decided the safest way to have "Stuff the Bus" this year is to create two donation options for those interested in donating school supplies. All donations will help provide supplies to students in need.

At Bethel, we are collecting school supplies for Frederick County schools via our partnership with Bright Futures. There will be a collection box at worship on Sundays we are worshiping outside (September 20 and 27).

Headphones/Earbuds
