During March and April of 2018, Bethel engaged in an intentional time of discernment about our ministry together called “Bethel Reforming” which focused on the 5 P’s; we began in Prayer and considered our Purpose as stated in our constitution; we have discerned our Principles (Core Values), highlighted some Possibilities for ministry and set Priorities for moving forward toward a 2020 Vision.
NEW UPDATE: On Sunday, September 30, Rev. John Wertz, the Director for Evangelical Mission for the Virginia Synod, will be here at Bethel to preach and lead us through a congregational visioning event that will synthesize and prioritize our next steps as we move toward our 2020 Vision! Plan to participate in this vital congregational event. We will gather in one service at 9:30, followed by a potluck lunch and meeting.
Principles (Core Values)
- Build Strong Healthy Relationships with Members/Friends
- Worship Where God’s Presence is Experienced
- Interact with Local Community for Good
- Help Those in Need
- Seek Out and Use the Gifts of All Ages
