Come and find communty in Christ
Come and grow in the knowledge of God
Come and serve in Jesus' name
This Sunday at Bethel
-13th Sunday after Pentecost
In today's gospel many people take offense at Jesus' invitation to eat his flesh and drink his blood; even many of Jesus' disciples peel off. This is the backdrop in John's gospel for Peter's confession of faith.
"To whom can we go?" asks Peter, in words we sometimes sing just before the gospel is read. "You have the words of eternal life."
In order to take such a stand, as Peter and Joshua did, Paul tells us to arm ourselves with the word of God. We pray in the Spirit that we might be bold ambassadors of the gospel.
The Bethel Lutheran Food Pantry is open every Saturday from 9am - 11am. Part of the Greater Chicago Food Depository, we serve those in need in Rolling Meadows, Palatine and Arlington Heights. Click Bethel News for more detailed information on this community outreach program.
