12.13.20 “Third Sunday of Advent”

"No more let sins and sorrows grow,
 nor thorns infest the ground;
 he comes to make his blessings flow
 far as the curse is found,
 far as the curse is found,
 far as, far as the curse is found."                                                                                
Dear Bethel,
     Join us for online worship today, the Third Sunday of Advent!
     Due to our COVID exposure in worship last week, Pastors Julie and Reggie were unable to meet together and in person to pre-record a service this week. So, we REJOICE in our God who is always working through us to do a New Thing!
     We invite you to join us on Bethel's Facebook page today for our first ever Bethel Facebook Live worship at 10:00 a.m.!  Pastor Reggie is preaching on Psalm 126 and John 1:6-9, 23-28.  We hope you will get an extra cup of coffee poured and open your hearts to hear what God has to say to you today!
     The worship videos will be available for viewing on Bethel's Facebook page beginning at 10am and anytime after.  We are going to try add them to our website and YouTube channel later this week, and we thank you in advance for your grace and support during these days of challenge and growth for worship at Bethel.
     Watch worship at 10:00 a.m. on Bethel's Facebook page:
