Please - Plan to join us to have a great Sunday morning, and - Feel free to bring your family and friends as we continue celebrate the triumph of Love...and contemplate our response
After worship, stay for a fellowship - snacks, coffee, tea, etc... something we always enjoy!
What to expect:
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.
Children's Worship & Sunday School
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 sheets are in the Parlor on the west wall....
Please join us for snacks and fellowship after Worship Service... one of the things that Bethel does best. Bethel UCC Ontario is an Open and Affirming congregation
