On Sunday, January 11, 2015, Bethel United Church of Christ begins a year-long celebration of 175 years of faithful worship in this community.
During Sunday worship throughout the year, we will be hearing interesting tidbits about Bethel history in a segment called, “175 Seconds”. Below are several important dates pertaining to our anniversary celebration.
Confirmands of Bethel
Confirmation is an important step in the faith journey as our young people publicly affirm the promise of their baptism. During worship, we will acknowledge those who have been involved in the confirmation process at Bethel through the years. Worship will be followed by a coffee hour in honor of confirmands, past and present. We hope to have many of those confirmed at Bethel join us for this special day.
Bethel Wedding Couples
Weddings at Bethel are beautiful events joining the lives of two Christian believers in a holy union. We extend a welcome to all couples who have been married at Bethel to join us on this Sunday to remember their special day. Please bring a wedding picture to share at the coffee hour following the service.
Final 175th Anniversary Sunday Celebration
We will have a special worship service acknowledging our 175-year heritage. There will be a program which reflects on Bethel’s past, present, and future as a faith community. This will be followed by a celebratory dinner.
