Vision Statement: Bringing peace to weary souls through Jesus. Love and comfort those who are hurting. Being Christ in the world through outreach and service.
The Serving Ministry Team is distinguished from the four other ministry teams by its focus on member service in three areas: to the congregation, the community outside Bethel, and to missions outside of our area. A Serving focus is fired by the Holy Spirit and by gratitude that we have been loved by Jesus and that we are consequently driven to extend his love and grace to others.
The Serving Ministry Team will oversee and coordinate the following Bethel programs:
Pastoral Care and Visitation
Advent by Candlelight
Refugee / Resettlement Ministry
Mission Congregations—Puerto Rico and Milwaukee Ascension
Circle of Love
Baptism Blanket Ministry
Day or Caring
Habitat for Humanity
