We believe that worship is a time where we encounter the living God as a community – a time to restore our faith, to renew our hope, and to rekindle our love for God and others. Even though we normally gather in person, we have cancelled in person services as we weather together the challenges of COVID-19. However, this does not mean we stop worshipping or even "gathering" as a community. We host a Live Stream Worship Service at 10:00 AM each Sunday.
Join us. Come as you are and invite people who you feel will be blessed by this time with us. Each week come to our home page where you will find a link for our Live Stream which can also be found on our Youtube channel. Let's seek God's strength and peace together during this new season of worship for our church!
Sunday: August 16, 2020 Live Stream: 10 a.m. Reading: Ecclesiastes 4:7-5:7 Title: "Friends, Fame, and Foolish Words" Pastor: Tom Baird
Worship Worship at Bethel is led by a diverse group of people and is meant to include the whole family. Through contemporary styles of music, blending new songs and classics, worship at Bethel aims to be thematic, focused, relevant and engaging. From time to time Bethel also incorporates other creative art forms in its worship gatherings such as drama, video, dance, and puppets.
Sermons Bethel has a Live Stream worship service every Sunday where our congregation gathers to worship and hear God's message. Sermons at Bethel are delivered by one of our two pastors and regularly invites you to consider your relationship with Christ in a deeper way and challenges you to live out the message in your daily life. Our church is for everyone and we invite you to join us for a sermon at either of our services on Sunday. If you missed a Sunday you can always listen to previous sermons, just head to our podcasts page.
Bethel Kids We encourage you to reach out to our Children's Ministries Director, Thelme Van Heerden, for details and resources for ministry to children at home. Immediately after each Sunday worship service, Bethel Kids will host a Zoom call to offer a special time of teaching, connection and fun with children of all ages. Please email Thelme for more information about this. See more information about our regular Children's program.
Prayer If you would like prayer we want to be available for you! At Bethel, we believe prayer is key to cooperating with the Holy Spirit and living life fully in Jesus Christ. After Sunday services throughout the COVID-19 crisis, you can call our prayer line at 780-476-3762 and someone from our prayer team would be honoured to pray with you. You can also call during the week, leaving a message at ext 218. Or send us a prayer request to firstname.lastname@example.org. “The Lord is near to all who call on him…” (Psalm 145:18) See more information about prayer at Bethel
Welcome Some of our friendliest people serve in this ministry! Normally, you would be greeted by one of our amazing attendants at the door. Since we are "gathering" with one another via Live Stream, we encourage you to introduce yourself over social media and the chat on the stream. We want you to feel welcome, even if you are only visiting our church. Please let us know how we can support you during this challenging season. If you have any general questions, feel free to contact usat the church office.
Connect We would normally invite you to join us for coffee and conversation. Given the precautions in place with COVID-19, we are left with this challenge: How can we connect with one another best? How can we let everyone know what's going on a Bethel, and how you can get involved? While we ask these questions, we encourage you to fill out the virtual connect card. We would love to get to know you more and support you during this time. Reach out to us and let us know how we can help.
Behind the Scenes The Sound and Technology team will mix the sound for the worship teams and speakers so that those in the church family can hear what's happening on the platform. This team is also in charge of recording the podcast for each week, so that people everywhere can tune into Bethel sermons. This ministry has recently expanded to include Live Stream production. Digital Media Ministry serves to promote meaningful and engaging worship by handling the important behind-the-scenes media used during the service.
