What to expect - n person or virtual:

Worship at Bethel is open, friendly, and inclusive. You can "come as you are" - we mean it when we say that "No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here". We are kid-friendly, family-friendly, and "Open and Affirming".

You will meet loving, welcoming people here. We are also a place where you can make a difference, if you wish.

Worship begins with a few minutes of music - a time to pray, meditate, prepare our hearts for worship. The service includes special music, a time for children, scriptures and inspirational readings, congregational singing (some traditional hymns, some worship choruses - a real "mix" of music), usually Dr. Mann shares a message, and we share communion the first Sunday of each month.

Our service is not always the same - we sometimes explore non-traditional worship formats, sometimes we are traditional...Really, it's all about worshiping in fellowship together, listening, learning, and sharing God's love.

 

No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. - See more at: http://betheluccontario.org/#sthash.9fBlxeZC.dpuf

~ How to Worship with us ONLINE ~

1. GATHER:

If you’re at home with your spouse, family or significant other(s) begin by gathering around a table, or in your family/living room. If it’s just you maybe you could just join us with your computer, tablet or phone and a friend to “join” you for worship by doing the same.

2. FOCUS:

Once you’re in place light a candle to symbolize the presence of the Holy Spirit. This is a good way to signal that you are entering into sacred time, and the place where you were chatting and laughing just a moment ago has become a sacred place.

3. PARTICIPATE:

Follow along with the online service- use the pdf order of service

(Available on our website, www.BethelUCCOntario.org  )

4. READ:

Read the scriptures along with us. (They are in the online order of service, or use your own Bible)

5. SING:

Sing along with us (the words are there for you on screen and in the “bulletin”!)

6. LISTEN:

Listen to the service, say the prayers with us, take notes on the sermon!

7. CLOSE:

After the Benediction, Blow out the candle.

8. FOLLOW UP

With sharing with your family: comment, feel free to send in questions. And pray together! (Send in prayer requests and we will pray for you and yours)

Children's Worship & Sunday School

bethel kids Every week we prepare a special segment of our service for the children, as well as age appropriate lessons for Sunday School. Our children are important to us - so they are welcome! Children begin the service with everyone in the sanctuary, then following the Children's Time in worship, they go to a special class just for them! They rejoin us towards the end of our formal worship, so that we conclude our worship together.

There ongoing opportunities to sign-up for some new and "re-newed" activities, like Handbell Choir, Children's Choir,  Futures Membership classes (Bethel/UCC "101"), Furry Friends, Religious Education, Chancel Choir and more...Sign-up by emailing us!.
