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 today will host Jay & Julie Dass who discuss their ministry, Your Voice of Faith. Their mission: We are sharing awareness with the Church and the love of Christ with Hindu, Muslim and Sikh communities.
We will hear about their exciting evangelism ministry reaching out with Christ to Muslim communities in major U.S. cities, colleges, and universities. One studies as a vicar via Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, and the other manages their mission ministry near Orlando.
Our LMWL group will host a special “Shepherds Pie Luncheon” at noon during which Pastor Eich will moderate a Questions and Answers segment.
You will not want to miss their fascinating presentation, and be emboldened and empowered to Build with the love of Christ in an increasingly hostile culture that seeks to tear Christianity down.
You can learn more about our missionaries and support them at their website: www.yourvoiceoffaith.com. They will surely light a fire of missionary passion.
IN SUNDAY SCHOOL TODAY the children learned the story of Peter and Cornelius (Acts 10) and how the Good News comes to us as it did to them. Talk about how in church we received the Good News that, although we are judged unrighteous and deserving of death, God mercifully declares us holy, righteous, and innocent because of Christ. What does this mean for our daily lives? is a good question to discuss as a family.
