This Sunday at Bethel

- 3d Sunday in Advent


Who do you think you are? Apparently John the Baptist got that question a lot.  Do you claim to be Elijah? people asked. Are you the Messiah?   Are you a prophet?  John didn't claim much to be much. He said he was just someone who pointed to the coming Messiah.


But that's doing a lot. In fact, that's a large job description for all of us. In our life as parents, employees, friends, co-workers, or committee members, we look for ways to point to the light of Christ. With our lives, with our words, and with our deeds, we point to what Christ has done, to what Christ is doing, and to what Christ will do when he comes again at the end of time to complete his work.


This is a busy weekend at Bethel. On Saturday, December 13, is the Annual Cookie Walk, from 8:45 to 11:00 am. Drop off cookies on Friday, December 12, between 4:30 and 6:00 p.m.


Saturday is also the day for the Living Nativity presentations  at 4:30 & 5:30 p.m.


During worship on Sunday, the children and adult choir will present the Christmas story, “Bethlehem’s Child.”


See you at church,


Pastor David
