Mission: What Can I Expect When I Visit Bethesda? Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Romans 12: 10, NIV We realize that to a new church can be intimidating. But, we at Bethesda Church are a non-judgmental group of believers who came here ourselves from diverse religious backgrounds. We’ve been in your shoes, and we want to help you feel welcome. Maybe you haven’t been to church since Nixon was in the White House. Maybe you’ve gone to several churches in the area, but haven’t found what you’re looking for. Maybe you’ve been invited by a member here or maybe you don’t know a soul. However you come to us, we love visitors. We might welcome you with a hand shake or a hug, but we’ll never single you out or ask you to stand up and be recognized. We’re just glad you chose to worship with us. Our Worship We are a small, independent congregation that follows the charismatic tradition. Charismatics do not represent a separate denomination within Christianity. You can find charismatics in almost every mainstream Protestant and Roman Catholic church. Charismatics are Christians who believe God still works through miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit that are spoken of in the New Testament. During each service, we welcome the Holy Spirit into our midst and sometimes we’ve experienced prophecies, miracles and healings. Those things don’t happen in every service, but anytime God wants to do something wonderful, we’re open to it. If you’ve never attended a charismatic service, it is not that much different from traditional Christian worship. We won’t yank you in the aisle, pound you on the forehead and demand that you be saved. We only believe that God is real and that He continues to move today in astounding ways in our lives. Whatever we do, we do it all for the glory of God. What Should I Wear We are very casual at Bethesda. The pastor never wears a tie, and most women wear slacks. When You Arrive We meet every Sunday morning at 10:30. When you first walk in the door, you’ll be greeted by a member of our congregation. Greeters can answer your questions about child care, class schedules, and the location of the bathrooms. The greeter will hand you bulletin and, if it’s your first time visiting with us, a goody bag that includes a Bible, a notepad and pencil. Sit anywhere you like. We don’t have hard pews, and we don’t have a seating chart. The Service Our service starts with music to praise and glorify God. We are led by a six-member praise and worship team, and we sing contemporary Christian praise and worship music. If you want sing with us, clap, or raise your hands in praise, that’s fine. If you want to pray quietly and worship in your seat, that’s okay too. After the music service, we take up our offering. We do not expect our visitors to contribute money. Next, we pray together, and our pastor delivers a sermon from the Word of God. The sermons usually last between 30-40 minutes. We offer communion on the third Sunday of each month. Everyone is welcome to participate and observe this memorial of Christ’s death and resurrection. Communion is served by two members of our congregation at the front of the sanctuary. We form a single line and walk forward to receive the bread and the juice that represent the slain body and blood of Jesus. Nursery and Sunday School We have a safe, clean and supervised nursery for children from birth up to four years old. You are welcome to stay in the nursery with your children or you can leave them with our capable staff. On Sunday mornings, we also offer classes for preschool through high school. Our Sunday School follows a structured curriculum, so that all the classes are discussing the same Biblical concept or story at the same time. We Welcome Your Questions If you have any questions about our services or what we believe, please feel free to ask Pastor Paul Prather 859-585-4176.
