Prayz & Worship Service

A new worship offering is on the horizon.  With the start of the Advent season on November 29, which is also the start of the church calendar year, a Prayz & Worship Service will begin at 9:00 a.m.  During Advent, we will worship in the sanctuary.  In January, we will continue in the sanctuary and  unveil our Bethel Wesley Prayz Band and Worship Team.

We will also continue to worship at 10:30 a.m. with our Traditional Worship Service in the sanctuary.  Realizing that different worship styles appeal to various individuals, our goal is to make disciples for Jesus Christ as we praise the Lord in whatever format that may be.  Let’s make Bethel Wesley UMC a church with a future.

In November we will study Paul’s Call To Love and Call To Faith. On Nov.1 during Holy Communion we will remember the saints who have passed on to glory, and we will pray for an end to gun violence, remembering the 335,609 people who have been killed by guns over the past decade. We will continue to celebrate God’s amazing LOVE in song and dance on Nov. 8, and we will review Paul’s life and death in video and drama on Nov 15. We will conclude the study on Nov.22 with an agape feast remembering Paul’s life and legacy in scripture and song. <!–split–>

Throughout the study we have viewed videos about how UM churches throughout the U.S. have been finding new mission fields in their communities by holding worship in unique settings including: a diner, on the river, at a storage unit, in prison, at a tattoo parlor, on motorcycles, at a school, in a bowling alley, and at the YMCA and how they have conducted drive-through prayer and drive-in church. We’ve been challenged to consider where in our community we are needed to spread the good news of God’s amazing love.

The Call: The Life and Message of the Apostle Paul

Sunday Morning’s – Wesley Hall  –  9:00-10:00 am

   Adults And Youth Invited!

What would lead a  1st century rabbi to travel thousands of miles by sea and by land, to be beaten, imprisoned, and ultimately beheaded for his faith? It was a call – a call to turn the world upside down. This is the story of the Apostle Paul. <!–split–>

No one, except Jesus, has had a greater influence on Christian faith than Paul and “his witness defines what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ.”

Paul’s letters include some of the most beautiful passages in the Bible, and some passages have led to great controversy. The Rev. Adam Hamilton will bring us messages by videos filmed in the places where Paul took his missionary journeys and will help us come to grips with Paul’s words for us today. The topics include:

  • Called To Follow Christ
  • Called To Go
  • Called To Suffer
  • Called To Love
  • Called To Give
  • Called To Be Faithful

Come and find out about Paul’s call, and be inspired to hear and follow your call!
