September 2016 Newsletter
2016 Theme: Disciples Making Disciples – Living and Sharing Our Faith with a New Generation
Scriptural Foundation: Matthew 28:19-20
Emphasis for September:
“Open House – Sharing Our Faith and Ministry with Family and Friends”
Praise God from whom all blessings flow! “God is good, His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all gen-erations.” (Psalm 100:5) We welcome everyone back from summer travels, vacations, and breaks. Hopefully, many of us had time for rest, relaxation, restoration, and wholesome times of fellowship and activities with family and friends. Although many of our ministries and programs were suspended for the summer months, our congregation was still very active. We thank the ministry leaders and volunteers for their support and the successes of the following programs and events: the Passage to Excellence Summer Enrichment Program, the annual vacation bible school, and the annual church picnic. Our Senior Ministry had a successful trip to the Smoky Mountains, our Missionaries at-tended the Lott Carey Missionary Convention in Philadelphia, PA, and our Children’s Ministry and Youth Ministry both had outings in the past month.
As we resume our regular worship service schedule, ministry activities, and programs; this month our emphasis will be on celebrating a church open house and holding a ministry fair. Invite your family and friends to attend the various programs and activities sponsored by Bethel this month. The Ministry Fair will be held Saturday, September 17th. The ministry fair is an opportunity for ministries of the church to present highlights focusing on the purpose of the ministry, activities, and recruitment of new members from the congregation and community. Ministry leaders are encouraged to attend the Leaders Meeting Saturday September 10th.
