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
As a new church year begins this Sunday, our scripture readings speak of Jesus’ coming at the end of time. We begin the Christian story at the end, remembering that Jesus will come to judge all people and to fulfill all of God’s promises.
When will this be? We don’t know. “Therefore, you must be ready,” Jesus says, “for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour” (Matthew 26:44). Our worship in Advent helps us be ready.
The adult class on “Animate faith” resumes this Sunday at 8:45 in the library.
See you in church,
