During 2017, we are offering an emphasis that will coincide with the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation.
Our discipleship theme is #ClaimtheName. This emphasis is centered on claiming the promise of our baptism where we are marked with the cross of Christ forever. Like Martin Luther and the Reformers, we seek to find our hope, strength, and comfort “in Christ alone.” Therefore, let us “Claim the Name” as individuals and as a congregation.
To invite others into this emphasis with us, I ask you to place our hashtag – #claimthename – into emails or Facebook posts or in tweets. Maybe we can get it trending!
This Sunday, join us in Discipleship Hall for a “update” from our Bethel Reforming time. We will be sharing initiatives that the Bethel council has discerned from the gatherings. We hope you will be able to be there with us!
