Upcoming Worship Service

    In the November Bethel News, I explained that identifying Core Values at Bethel Church was part of a homework assignment from a course that I took during my sabbatical.  I did the project to assist Council in its efforts to discern next steps for the life and ministry of our church.
   Core values express the identity of this church.  Core values are not aspirations, “what we hope to be,” but values that define us, “who we are.” Values identify the foundation, the root, the strengths that determine action.
   The values were identified through an activity of listening to stories from members at Bethel, telling of God at work in our church.  The most common values that came out of these stories were Care, Welcome, Share, Trust.
 
   As we begin this new calendar year, we will look more closely at these values,
     how they live in our congregation,
     how they can guide us in our decisions as we discern God’s leading for our church,
     and how they can inspire us to continue blessing our community.
 
Fellowship & Study:  On Sunday afternoon we meet from 3:00-4:30 for a casual gathering around tables in the Fellowship Hall where we have an open discussion about God’s Word and our personal faith. Questions are freely asked as we desire to apply God’s Word to our lives.  Everyone is welcome.
We will be taught by Ray VanderLaan in his latest volume, “A Clash of Kingdoms.”  Consider your citizenship, and the message you convey to the world around us.  Where is our conviction?  How can we effectively live our faith in a hostile world?  This lesson is focused on the church in Philippi as they lived their faith as part of a Roman colony.
