Let’s be honest. Except for that hour each Sunday morning, life is pretty good at distracting us away from God and doing God’s will for the rest of the week.  We have a solution, though.

Each month, our pastor suggests a theme on which we can focus our personal prayers and look for local opportunities to live our faith in the “everyday” through local action and local giving relevant to the theme.

You don’t have to be a member of Bethel or even attend church to join us as we pray, act, and give.  Just stay tuned into our website. Themes will be posted here each month in addition to appearing on the back of our Sunday bulletins.

If you’d like to suggest a theme, please use the contact link to drop us a note and we’ll pass it along to the pastor!

“I sought to hear the voice of God and climbed the topmost steeple, but God declared: “Go down again – I dwell among the people.”
― John Henry Newman
