Dessert, Discuss, Discover
Please join our Board of Deacons on Thursday, September 21, 2017 at 7:00pm at Jeff and Mary Peterson’s home (25b Edwards Road, Foxboro)
Let’s get together to enjoy a dessert, discuss and discover more about the people at Bethany Church.
It should be a fun evening of fellowship. There is a sign up sheet in the narthex. Please contact Lorna Sullivan at (508) 212-5153
Hope to see you there!
What is worship? What does it really mean? Was worship more authentic for you last year, or was it better a century ago, or when the early church met in homes, or do you care? What are the essentials for a “complete” worship experience? Why is there a sermon? Has organ music always been sacred? How do worship leaders please a congregation that grew up wildly different expectations for what a “good” church service is? Is worship better when we observe certain proscribed traditional quote styles unquote or when attempting to be contemporary? How sensory is worship for you?
David and Bernie are charged by you each Sunday to collaborate in the creation of a worship service that seeks to create a divine moment in our week. What is it that guides us as we work together to achieve that remarkable goal.
Join us next Sunday, September 17th after worship in the parlor to explore with us why we make the choices we do as together we talk about WORSHIP.
Welcome back to our Bethany Homecoming Sunday, September 10th! Celebrate the beginning of a new church year…and invite your family, friends and neighbors too as we join together for fellowship, food and fun! This year we are having a church potluck so bring your favorite casserole, side dish or yummy dessert! Activities and games will begin following the worship service. Watch for ways you can help out with set up or clean up.
Call Pam McGuire 508-740-7197 with any questions.
March 14,21,28 / April 4
Eat your Vegetables
We have all been told that vegetables are good for us, but did you know that eating a whole foods, plant-based diet has been scientifically proven to prevent, improve and even reverse many of the chronic diseases that plague our society?
To learn more, join us for this 4-week program. We will meet on March 14, 21, 28 and April 4 from 7 to 9 p.m. This is a perfect program to bring a friend or neighbor! Contact Bev Crocker here or Janet Fisher here to sign up or for more information.
How I Changed My Mind
The New Testament Greek word for “repent” when translated into English is… “to change directions.” We most often associate that word with someone who is making a decision to leave a selfish way of living to embrace a life of following Christ. But repenting is sometimes a daily business of changing the way we think and aligning our aspirations for discipleship with our life choices. What becomes clear as we are on the journey is that our understanding of our faith changes too, sometimes in subtle ways and sometimes in ways that are startling to us. Sit in at some of our member’s homes, enjoy some light refreshments and listen to shared stories from three of our BCC members who wish to reflect on how they changed their minds. Perhaps you will learn something new about them and likely how you too have changed your mind. Send us an email reserve your spot or ask a question.
