URGENT NOTICE

In an effort to keep our members safe and healthy during this time of uncertainly, our Leadership has made the decision to temporarily suspend In-Person Worship Service and All Youth Group meetings for the next several weeks. This would mean that our next Regular Worship Service would be April 19, 2020.  The office remains open with only occasional hours, we are still checking phone messages and getting the mail.  The best way to contact us is by emait to:

SUSTAINING CREATION -

A FAITH JOURNEY

First Congregational Church of Bethel


“Sustaining Creation: A Faith Journey” is a dynamic eight-session series intended to guide Christians on an extended journey to a new understanding of our call to live sustainably with all of God’s Good Creation. Richly grounded in scripture, this series includes reflections, interviews with Creation Justice faith leaders, taps into the wisdom of noted authors, takes the audience on location to ponder the Climate Crisis and includes discussion time so that together we can seek to discern how God is calling us to respond.  Included in the series are participant discussion guides and action steps to living sustainably.   We will meet for eight Wednesdays in the fall (minus the first Wednesdays of the month set aside for Brews and Chews). Please join us on September 13, 20 and 27, October 11, 18 and 25, November 15 and 22, at 7 PM in Patchen Parlor.
