“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” Acts 2:42
Congregational life at Bethel is lived out in four major areas; discipleship, fellowship, worship and care. Discipleship ministries include such things as Sunday School, Adult groups and confirmation. Fellowship is experienced in many diverse groups such as Friendship Club, Feed and Read, and Current Christian Concerns. Worship is so central to our community life that it has its own section here in the website. And Care Ministries include visitation, Stephen Ministry and Bethel’s Homeless Ministry Services.
Join us in giving something unexpected this Christmas! As members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), we believe that God is calling us into the world – together. And with generous, loving hands, we can make a difference. ELCA Good Gifts is your opportunity to provide critical support to the ministries and programs that mean the most to you and the people you love.
1. Choose an ornament from the Emmaus Room Tree to give a gift to support a family around the world through the ELCA.
While many Advent calendars come with the promise of something we receive, this Advent our journey will help us reflect upon and respond to the love of the baby Jesus in the manger by giving things away.
We invite you to “fill the manger” by collecting needed items for our neighbors here and across the globe: Bethel Homeless Ministries, Bethel Food Pantry, and a congregational goal to collect $2,500 to build a water well through ELCA World Hunger.
