Featuring the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, Felix Mendelssohn, Gioachino Rossini, and many others, on Bethel’s beautiful Schantz pipe organ. We are using the phrase, “Soli Deo Gloria” because it was often used as a signature after Johann Sebastian Bach’s sacred works. Like the Reformation’s “Sola Gratia” (“Grace Alone”) signified that we are not saved by what we do, so Bach wanted to signify that his work was produced for the sake of praising God alone, and not for bringing glory to himself as a musician.
In conjunction with the upcoming Circle of Love golf outing, which this year will be a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity of Dane County, Bethel is working to provide volunteers to assist with various tasks related to building Habitat homes in Fitchburg. And YOU are invited to help! We are currently seeking people to help on Tues Sept 4 and Sat Oct 27. We are hoping to put together a group of eight volunteers for each day. Work will be guided by a Habitat crew leader, and no particular skills are required to help.
