At the request of the Jedi Council, please mark your calendars to join the Bethel Sunday School youth in our 2017 Christmas Program, Star Wars - Our Faith Awakens, on December 17th.  The saga is set to begin at 6:30 pm.   We ask parents to join forces with us as we prepare for this year's program.  Please be sure all young Jedi (PreK thru 6th grade) report to Sunday School each Sunday starting November 19th to help us complete their training for the program.   The force is strong this Christmas season for an amazing performance.  Please reach out to Karen Lune (PreK & K) and Danielle Rohrer or Jaime Cooley (1st thru 6th) with questions.

As we have called a new pastor for Bethel, we must celebrate the interim pastor who has served us so well for the last three years.  Please join us for a Thank You celebration for Pastor Ray on Sunday December 17th after the church service.  We will be having cake and a light brunch. Please contact Kim Stanley if you would like to help.

Please help make Christmas special for children and adults served by the Lutheran Social Services of Illinois.  Bethel is blessed with an amazingly generous congregation, evident by the number of years we have participated in LSSI’s Holiday Hope Chest.  Please stop by and get a stocking or two off of the Giving Tree display, which contains names and needs of both children and adults in our community.  Additional instructions are available with each stocking.  Thanks so much for your continued support of this holiday outreach opportunity.  Gifts must be returned to Bethel no later than Sunday, December 3rd.  Please see Dana Franklin or Jaime Cooley with any questions.  Bless you all!

The Worship Committee requests help in decorating the sanctuary for the Advent & Christmas seasons on Sunday, December 3 following the 9:00 a.m. service.  Men are especially needed to set up the large tree at the front of the sanctuary.
