Life can be so confusing! Truth is, we are living at a time of greater uncertainty, chaos, and confusion than ever before. But for times like this, God has a name. This name is for those of us who feel weak and confused. This name is for those of us who are so easily overwhelmed by the chaos of life. God gives to us a name, a name in which we can find strength. His name is Elohim! Join us on Sunday at 9:30am as we kick off a new sermon series, “Hello, My Name Is….”

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Operation Christmas Child is a great opportunity for us to help share Jesus with boys and girls around the world. Check out the display in the foyer and grab the paper that lists a variety of items to pack in your shoebox. It is a great help! If you are interested in helping with the shipping costs please take a bottle from the display, fill it with coins and return it to the church office. If you are writing a check, please write it out to Bethel Church with OCC in the memo. Thank you for your participation in this ministry. For more information contact Kathy at (701) 350-1560.
