During March and April of 2018, Bethel engaged in an intentional time of discernment about our ministry together called “Bethel Reforming”. We are excited about what God is doing among us and where God is leading us. We are sharing here the information shared at our update meeting on Sunday, May 20. There will be monthly updates beginning in July, 2018 as well.
“Bethel Reforming” focused on the 5 P’s. We began in Prayer and considered our Purpose as stated in our constitution. From our Bethel Reforming gatherings, we have discerned our Principles (Core Values), highlighted some Possibilities for ministry and set Priorities for moving forward toward a 2020 Vision.
Principles (Core Values)
- Build Strong Healthy Relationships with Members/Friends
- Worship Where God’s Presence is Experienced
