New Years Message from Our Pastor


Happy New Year Bethel!


We are in a New Year of New Adventure! Last year 2020 tested our Faith in seeing if we could weather the storm of the pandemic and many other lifelong events!


As our Faith continues to be tried, there is one thing for sure that the believer knows is that endurance, commitment, dedication, and fortitude are needed in times like this. We are saddened by the deaths that some families have experienced due the the affects of COVID-19, and other health issues and incidents. 


We are praying that we can come out of our emotional cocoons and began to bust through the silk linings of hesitation to peer into a new awareness of purpose and self.  There is so much more to do in kingdom building; and God needs each of us to find our place and purpose in this new space.  We are praying for health and strength to penetrate through our church body.  This request will propel Bethel to reach its destiny! As we continue the journey to our destiny we pray for others to join the ranks of Bethel, making it a place that God is well pleased! 


In closing, may our children and youth be nudged to gain new insight to the difference they can make in the church and community as well as their lives! We pray that God will give Bethel resources to assist in doing kingdom building according to the will of God! We are so blessed at Bethel that has a long history of helping others, and we want to continue to be a support to the community we serve! 


Because He Lives!
