The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever. He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Thank you for considering pursuing the vision for the next generation with us!
The opportunities in Family Discipleship are varied enough to involve many different people with different gifts. If you have a heart for God and a desire to make Him known to the next generation, there is probably a place for you in these ministries. Our volunteer process is designed to help determine where our opportunities and your gifts and interests come together.
Behavioral Principles and Expectations
It is our joy to be in community with young people here at Bethlehem. Whether young children or twelfth-grade young adults, we hope they will be stirred up to love Jesus and spread his fame.
The story told in this article by Shannon Popkin at True Woman is meant to echo the Parable of the Talents told by Jesus in Matthew 25:14–30.
Praise God that the North Campus is able to start children’s classes for Wednesday, September 21, Connection and for Sunday, September 25, Sunday School!
As announced earlier, we will delay start-up for North Campus Preschool–Grade 12 Wednesday Connection and Sunday School classes for one week as we wait on the Lord for a sufficient number of volunteers to serve in these ministries.
Would you join us in praying that the Lord would bring the remaining 21 gospel partners needed for our classroom ministry to begin? If these volunteers are in place by Noon on Thursday, Sept 15, we'll move ahead with class start dates of Wednesday, Sept 21, and Sunday, Sept 25. Watch for details to come.
"It’s in the slow moments that God speaks to us through his word and we speak to him in prayer. This is when we step away from all the busyness in order to fellowship with our heavenly Father. This is when we come to his word for the precious purpose of drinking from the living well—Jesus Christ.
Here is a simple guide for busy moms who want to build more of these slow moments into their everyday — moments to stop and drink deeply from the living well."
- Family Discipleship Sunday School classes begin Sept 18 at 9am (Preschool–Grade 6) and 11am (Preschool–Grade 12).
The Family Discipleship teams at each campus are eager to begin ministries for children and youth this Fall. We love coming alongside parents to help the next generation find their joy in Jesus! We are earnestly praying that the Lord would send all the remaining gospel partners needed for classroom ministry.
Would you trust the Lord with us in prayer? Would you ask the Lord if he would have you serve the children and youth this year?
To fuel your prayers, you’ll find a list of current open positions below. Thank you!
