God at the Movies


Stories have power, and almost nothing captures the power of story better than a good movie. With this in mind, Bethel’s “At the Movies” sermon series will use scenes from Hollywood films to help illustrate God’s story in Scripture. The whole idea of this series comes straight from the methods of Jesus. One quick glance through the Gospels, and you will see how many times Jesus used parables—captivating and culturally relevant stories that helped people more clearly understand the grace and hope of God. The storytelling medium of our generation is movies. “At the Movies” will begin during weekend worship services from June 4 – July 9.

Top Reasons to Give It All

Matthew 13:34-35, 44-45

“All Jesus did that day was tell stories—a long storytelling afternoon. His storytelling fulfilled the prophecy:

‘I will open my mouth and tell stories;

I will bring out into the open

    things hidden since the world’s first day.’

Listen up! The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a someone chanced upon and then reburied; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

Here’s another! The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls; on finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.”
