Jesus told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. (Luke 10:2)
God continues to bless Bethel and its ministries well beyond our hopes and dreams. Bethel has been faithful in prayerfully seeking God’s will for the election of church officers and God has answered those petitions by providing Bethel with a long legacy of faithful elders and deacons. We need your prayers again this year! Our hope is that the entire congregation will respond by praying for the discernment of God’s will as He identifies those He has chosen to serve as the new class of Bethel leaders. Please submit the names of those that God places on your heart and pray that they might hear His call to exercise their gifts. For those of you that God calls this year, please prayerfully consider serving.
In Christ’s Name,
