Family Corner

The Bethel Library

will be open during office hours. If your family is looking for something to read, you’re more than welcome to come and pick out a few books for yourself and your children. There is lots of good reading to choose form.

Have you checked out RightNow Media, Share Faith Kids, Focus on the Family, or CRC the Network and Faith Formation Ministries?

Located on these sites are many different opportunities to learn and to have fun. The following are some ideas for you to check out.


Welcome to the Do Not Worry family devotional. Jesus taught His followers to store up treasure for themselves in heaven, rather than on earth. He reminded people that earthly treasures are short-lived compared to the eternal riches of His Kingdom.

His teachings comforted the poor and sick that were anxious about their future. He reminded them that if God cares about the birds of the air and the flowers of the field, He will do so much more to take care of those who trust Him! This story describes God as a loving Father who knows what we need and will take good care of us all.

At-home Faith Formation Tip: How warm is your family? The good people at the Fuller Youth Institute tell us that “in a comprehensive study of relational dynamics in more than 300 families spanning 35 years, family warmth was more correlated with faith transmission than any other relational factor (including amount of contact between the generations, the type of contact, and the number of children in the family).” Read more in their blog post at fulleryouthinstitute.org/blog/warmth-in-your-family.

"The place where your treasure is is the place you will most want to be, and end up being.” Luke 12:33-34. The goal of this Six Week Journey is to give you hope that you can lead your desires instead of your desires leading your life. You don't have to live as a slave to every impulse that you feel! You can use your treasure - time, talents, talking, and thinking - to direct your desires to "the place you will most want to be, and end up being." The combination of the weekly video content, the group discussion questions and the daily personal Bible study will help equip you with practical tools that you can use in your everyday life to direct your desires.

Together, the videos and study guides provide an in-depth view of the book of Luke. The purpose of the Eyewitness Bible Series is to help small groups, churches, families and individuals learn the Bible better.
