    We look forward to seeing you at the 9:30 am or 11:00 am in-person service which will resume December 13th! If you are more comfortable worshiping from home, join us for the live stream of the 9:30 am service.

    1. Please pray.

      We have some sad news to share. Eleanor West, a long-time member of Bethel, passed away last week at the age of 90. A small family only funeral was held for her. Please keep her loved ones in your prayers.
      1. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this. (Yet rejoicing that she is made whole and reunited with her Savior and dear husband.) Eleanor was a beautiful soul who will be greatly missed. She was such a joyful and wonderful, godly woman. Her love for the LORD and excellent example of her Christian walk are remembered fondly. Will be praying for her family.
    2. Sorry this announcement is late in getting out. We have made the decision to cancel in person church services (Today November 22 and next week November 29). We will resume services on December 6 for the safety of our congregation. Message from Pastor will be posted on Facebook and a link will be on Church website once posted.
      1. Praying in Jesus's Holy Name for Brother Harrison's speedy recovery; praying along with our Senior Pastor Kishore Daroga, who was blessed with his speedy recovery from Covid-19... thank You in advance, dear Abba Father God, Amen.
    3. This goes right along with Pastor Mick's sermon this past Sunday. From Lysa TerKeurst's Instagram page:  I walked into my appointment with my counselor, Jim, wishing I’d canceled. I just didn’t feel up to tackling the topic of forgiveness that day. As I sat in Jim’s office, I felt utterly unmotivated to talk and overly motivated to cry. “Lysa, do you have the desire to heal from this?” I nodded my head yes. I did want to heal. From the marital devastation. From the shock of all the unpredictable ways people had reacted to what happened. But how could I possibly start healing when there was no resolution or restitution or reconciliation with Art or others who had hurt me? As Jim kept talking, I started to realize I might never feel like things were fair. Even if the people who hurt me suddenly became repentant and owned all they’d done, that wouldn’t undo what happened. That wouldn’t instantly heal me or make any of this feel right. I had to separate my healing from their choices. My ability to heal cannot depend on anyone’s choices but my own. Oh, friend, what if we stopped waiting for things to feel right and fair and placed our healing in the hands of Jesus instead? Our ability to heal cannot depend on others wanting our forgiveness, but only on our willingness to give it. We can heal. We can forgive. We can trust God. And none of those beautiful realities can be held hostage by another person. You deserve to stop suffering because of what other people have done to you, sweet friend. And today’s a good day to let that process start. What healing do you need to place in the hands of Jesus today? (From Lysa's new book: "Forgiving What You Can't Forget")
      1. God's word. It's powerful. I so appreciate the message Pastor Mick preached today. Forgiveness looks a lot like dropping the rock. From today's sermon outline: God's key relationship principle is "Do unto others as I (God) have done for you." Forgiven people forgive. #Amen #forgiveness
