Mark your calendars … this summer, our VBS will be Sunday, July 20 thru Thursday, July 24, from 6:00-8:00 each evening and is open to all children age 3 years to those who are entering the 8th grade this fall. Children who are 2 years old can attend if they have a parent who is helping in VBS and remains on the church property during VBS. Many helping hands will be needed, so keep watching for opportunities to sign up and serve. Jenny Feagley is our VBS Director.
All men and women, ages 15 and up, are invited to participate this June and July on Bethel softball teams in a Princeton Church League. Cost is $20/player to cover the entry fee and a t-shirt for each player. Please take and fill out an interest sheet located on the Information Center in the main foyer. Please return the sheets to the church office so that Brian Douglas (812-779-8403) and Rusty Reeves (812-677-2348) can form the teams based on your preferences. Feel free to call them with any questions.
Our church is planning to roll out a new ministry this Fall.
Lord-willing, beginning in September, Monday nights will be dedicated to providing Christ-centered, Scripture-based support groups for the church family and our local community. One of the first groups offered will be a recovery group for addictions.
Our prayer is that the Lord grows “Refuge” to provide more groups addressing more life concerns such as prison release/transition; finance management/stewardship; divorce recovery; and the list could go on.
Many Bethel volunteers ready to serve will be a vital part of “Refuge” in order to carry out the Monday night activities which we hope will include a meal and worship time prior to the group time.
Mike Clark is leading “Refuge” and would like to talk with you about serving or participating in a group. You can reach him at 812-632-8867. Please pray for Mike as he leads.
Pray for laborers to serve in the ministry. Pray for God’s unrivaled greatness & love to be known in our community as He changes our lives through His ministry work.
The Men’s Team Ministry & Breakfast will meet at 7:00am on Saturday, June 14, in the gym.
All men are invited to a good breakfast, great fellowship and an encouraging word centered around the Lord. Invite someone to come with you.
We will split up into our teams about 7:45am and visit our care receivers. We are in need of 6-8 new members in order to serve our care receivers.
The Men’s Team Ministry goal is:
Just as Christ sacrificed for us by meeting a need we could not meet ourselves, we want to train/learn to sacrifice for others by meeting needs they cannot meet themselves.
This is what we do:
a) Men donate three hours of time one Saturday morning a month.
b) They’re formed into teams of four.
c) Each team is permanently assigned to a widow, widower or single parent (care receiver).
d) On the second Saturday of every month, the teams meet at their church at 7 AM for fellowship, prayer, devotion, and last minute planning.
e) At 7:45 AM, the men break up into their teams and go out and work in the homes of their care receiver until 10 AM.
f) Each month, the teams return to the same care receiver, resulting in a long term relational ministry that we hope will last for years.
Anyone interested in checking out this ministry is welcome to stop by and have coffee, donuts, and fellowship. If you have any questions please call Pastor Kyle or Rick Birch at 480-3771.
There are currently several small groups (3-7 men in a group) studying God’s Word and learning from each other. Several Groups are starting a new study. If you are interested in joining one of our small group Bible studies, check out the additional information on the sign up sheet in the south foyer of the church.
College Students who would like someone to support you in prayer, please pick up a form today at the Information Center. A Prayer Partner will faithfully remember you in prayer during the school year. Fill out a form as soon as possible for this ministry to begin. Please contact Cindy Beadles at 386-7269 or 677-0298 if you have questions or need additional information.
