Bethel UCC is joining with the Arlington Church of the Brethren’s Community Yard Sale, to be held Saturday, May 18, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Some of the proceeds go to support AFAC (Arlington Food Assistance Center). The Church of the Brethren is located at 300 N. Montague St.
Bethel UCC recently installed new lay leadership as they elected their Consistory, and placed a renewed emphasis on programs with new committee chairs. The actions were approved at a congregational meeting last month. Chairs have been selected for all the church’s committees, creating a new sense of energy to move the church forward in all its missions. The committees are: Outreach and Fellowship, Christian Education, Social Concerns, Worship and Music, and Church Property.
Bethel United Church of Christ, like all UCC churches, is led by its members. This is done through three congregational meetings – Jan/Feb (leadership), Jun/Jul (programmatic) and Nov/Dec (budget). Between the congregational meetings the Consistory, the church’s governing body, acts on behalf of the congregation. The heart of Bethel is its members and their passion about living Christ’s mission in the world.
Bethel UCC extends a special welcome to worship with us on Sunday, January 27th at 10:00 am…
and then stay for a particularly warm (literally and figuratively) welcome at fellowship hour afterwards when we’ll be serving chili and cornbread. We’ll have crafts and games for children.
This is an opportunity to learn about Bethel UCC and meet others who are seeking a faith community.
