Sunday, December 8th 

Is the second Sunday of Advent, a time where the church slows down and reflects on the gift of Jesus who came to earth to become human like us. This Advent season we will be journeying through selected passages from the Book of Revelation: Angels, Help Us to Adore Him. We will continue with Revelation 3:14-22, Lukewarm Christians. This passage is a letter to the church in Laodicea. It’s so easy when you’ve been in a relationship for a long time to take the other person for granted. It’s not that you love them less, but you stop showing it, you allow other things to take your time and attention away from the other person, and you slowly begin to drift apart, allowing your love to grow less hot. This creates lukewarm relationships, even with God. The challenge is how to revive a lukewarm relationship again.

Sunday, December 15th

Will be the third Sunday of Advent, a time when the church slows down and reflects on the gift of Jesus who came to earth to become human like us. We also look forward to Jesus’’ return during Advent. This Advent season we will be journeying through selected passages from the Book of Revelation: Angels, Help Us to Adore Him. We will be reflecting on Revelation 4, Falling Down in Worship. In Revelation 4 we are given a peek into heaven’s throne room and the worship that happens there. It’ a good time to reflect on how worship fills and shapes our hearts and lives each day.

You are invited to Bethel Christian Reformed Church, for a Blue Christmas Service to be held on Sunday, December 15th at 5:30 p.m. Blue Christmas is for those who have experienced loss, grief, struggles and more during the year that makes it difficult to celebrate the Christmas season as the culture around us celebrates. A Blue Christmas allows us to come together with others who are experiencing hurt and brokenness in a safe place. Where we can acknowledge our pain with people who understand and hear a word from God that reminds us that He also understands where we are at. While offering us hope in Jesus Christ who came and experienced life as we do, so that we come to a God who understands. Blue Christmas shines a bit of light into our darkness to remind us that we do not walk alone.
