Our Mission: Bringing people of all ages and cultures in Chicago's Northwest suburbs into life-changing faith in the risen Jesus Christ.
This Sunday at Bethel
—7th Sunday after Pentecost
What is the kingdom of God like? In this week’s reading from Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus offers several different images:
The kingdom of God is like a large shrub that grows from a little mustard seed. Or it’s like yeast mixed into a loaf of bread. Or it’s like a treasure found in a field.
It seems that the kingdom of God is small but powerful, invisible but transformative, compelling but often hidden.
How have you encountered God’s kingdom? What image would you use for the way it has entered your life?
Through Jesus, the Spirit of God has entered our lives, and is working—mysteriously, but powerfully—to transform us and the whole world.
The seed of God’s kingdom is growing.
See you in church,
