Our Mission: Bringing people of all ages and cultures in Chicago's Northwest suburbs into life-changing faith in the risen Jesus Christ.
This Week at Bethel
First Sunday of Lent
In the movie “Jesus in Montreal,” a rising actor is led to the top of a hotel and shown the sparkling city lying beneath him. He can become the toast of the city, his advisers tell him—but only if he agrees to their plans for his career.
That character faced the kind of choice that Jesus faced in the wilderness. In this week’s Gospel reading (Matthew 4:1-11), Jesus turns down the devil’s tempting offer of glory. Jesus remains true to his identity and mission, even if that means going to the cross. By his obedience to God, Jesus sought a different kind of glory—and he won the victory of life for all of us.
The adult Bible study of Romans begins this Sunday at 8:45. a.m.
Just a reminder: daylight savings begins Sunday.

Romans for Everyone
The adult Bible class will look at some major themes in Paul's letter to the Romans. Since the Lenten devotional booklet for the congregation, "Too Deep for Words," is also based on Romans, this is a great chance to dig deeper into this book, which has shaped how Christians understand God's faithfulness and our salvation in Christ. Class begins Sunday, March 9th.
