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.

ADULT BIBLE CLASS Ron Perkins leads a class based on Books of the Old Testament beginning today. Grab some goodies and a cup of coffee on the way in. We meet in the Great Hall at 9:15am.
SUNDAY SCHOOL STUDENTS studied “The Twelve Spies in Canaan” today. We are like the faithless Israelites, doubting and revolting against God’s ways and direction. God forgave them and He forgives us our sins of disbelief through Christ who fought sin for us on the cross. Parents could ask How do we sometimes doubt God? What has God promised us?
