  • This Week At Bethel | Bethel Community Church

    This Week At Bethel September 24, 2023 This Sunday Church Family News Announcements Community News Calendar Bulletin Archive This Sunday THIS SUNDAY: We will be worshipping together through one service in person and over live stream at 10:00 a.m. To join us online, go to Bethel’s home page and click on the button that says: “Worship Online with Us.” We continue our sermon series, The Good News, this Sunday by reflecting on the devotion among the earliest followers of Jesus. Through relational practices and rhythms—meditating on the apostles' teaching, fellowship, the breaking of bread and prayer—the message of Good News transformed and deepened their community. This also is how we must live out the gospel and share it with others. How can this be an example of how we reach out to and live with one another? Pastor Harold Roscher, Director of the Native Healing Centre, will be guest preaching for us this Sunday in a message focusing on Acts 2:42-47, "Good News through Fellowship." Following the message, we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper together. For those attending in-person, we will invite you to come forward to receive the elements at the front, sharing them together as a group. If you are not able to come forward, please raise your hand and the elements will be brought to you. Gluten-free bread is available for those who desire this option. For everyone online, please have communion elements ready at home (bread, juice/wine) to join with us in sharing the meal. You can partake of the elements at home while they are being served in the sanctuary. We look forward to celebrating Christ’s meal of grace with you Sunday. Please prepare your hearts for this time of remembrance and celebration in light of our forgiveness through the cross.
