Children’s Sunday School
The pastor welcomes children to worship towards the beginning of the zoom worship service with conversation and a story time. Materials to use at home (Children’s Bulletin and coloring page) are sent out on Saturdays. Contact us if you wish to be on the email list for children’s resources.

Communion on first Sundays. Zoom does not prevent our communing. You are invited to use whatever elements you have on hand; juice, water, wine, bread, crackers, chips. Members and friends participate at the same time, while muted to allow the presiding minister to share the litany of communion.

 

Who Are We?

Bethel is a welcoming and affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ.

Our vision is:

    To receive and share Jesus’ message of extravagant love through compassionate care for our community and the world.

This vision inspires us to be a church of mission where we seek to:

  1. Know God and one another and open ourselves to be known.
  2. Be a church where people are comforted, encouraged, and challenged by God’s Word.
  3. Serve as God’s hands of mercy, affirming justice and peace in the world. 
  4. Welcome and celebrate the diversity of people and thought, encouraging each individual’s relationship with Christ.

We still volunteer at AFAC to bag vegetables and food that will be distributed during AFAC business hours. Those who volunteer wear masks and keep social distance in order to protect each other while serving the Arlingtonians in need.
