We, the people of Bethel Lutheran Church come together as a family of faith, prayer and service, striving to respond to the call of Jesus to love God and our neighbor, carrying out His commission in Matthew 28:19, “to go into all the world.” By virtue of our baptism, each member is called to share in the work of witnessing to and within our Lord’s Kingdom and His call to bear His name to others.

GOD COMMANDS that I honor authorities. In the Bible account for this week, “Joseph Cares for Jacob,” we see this command in action as Joseph cares for his aging father. Through His Son, Jesus, God forgives us when we fail to honor authorities. Discuss, Whom has God put in authority over you? How can you honor those in authority over you?
