5 Worship : How are members involved in planning and participation in the liturgy/worship? There are worship planners who meet monthly with the pastor to plan the details of each service. Planning meetings are a time of sharing ideas freely in an effort to keep worship fresh and meaningful. The team discusses and chooses music, readings, and other options that enhance the theme of each service and each season of the church year. Within the worship service itself, there are about twenty-four people involved in praise teams. In addition, once every six weeks, our Ignite youth group praise team leads. Ages of those participating range from junior high to those in their seventies. Occasionally younger children play rhythm instruments or wave scarves during the singing. Members of the congregation also participate in readings, especially during services for special seasons or occasions. Describe the worship services in your church: We design our services to bring people humbly and joyfully into the presence of God. During the time of opening worship, the music begins with songs bringing praise to God and gradually transitions to the vertical relationship of awe and wonder at who God is and what he has done for us. Often we end with a quiet song of adoration, as we stand forgiven. The music is mostly contemporary, with at least one classic hymn each week. The overall style is not as loud as some contemporary services might be. Through song or spoken words, there is confession of sin and assurance of pardon. Each service has a time of pastoral prayer for the people. Preaching is key to the purpose of the service. Bethel Church appreciates expository preaching as it follows a book of the Bible or as it explores a broader theme for a season. A beautiful part of our worship is the fellowship that continues after the service ends. Describe the discipleship practices in your church for all ages of members and attenders: We have typical Sunday school, GEMS and boys club programs. We have a Bible-story based children in worship program for ages 4 years 1st grade. We have a strong youth program (grades 7-12) with foci on service and training in the Word. Our members distinguish themselves as servants as they participate in two community outreach ministries, Coffee break/ Story hour and BAC2ONE (Bethel Art Camp to ONE Savior, see below, important events). There is a mentorship program for young people wishing to make profession of faith and join the church. Those considering to become members go through a class that educates them about the denomination, Christian reformed faith, and how Bethel works. The fellowship committee organizes events and potlucks. Members are encouraged to work on actively reaching out to build relationships with seekers and new members. The council organizes 5 shepherding groups, each led by an elder/ deacon pair. Small groups are currently formed within shepherding groups. These groups include members and visitors. There are additional small group ministries such as book club and men s group. Discipleship also occurs during the greeting and fellowship periods before and after church.

12 Narrative : Do you have a recently articulated mission/vision for ministry? [Y] In what ways does your church participate in ecumenical activities? Guatemala Action Project (partners with Pease CRC), Just for you (ministry for disabled adults, partner with New Life community church in Princeton), BAC2ONE (all-day art based vacation Bible school, we use facility at New Life for child care, many community members help), Crisis pregnancy center, Meals al a car, Princeton/ Milaca food pantries. Reflect on your strengths/gifts as a church: We have a committed group of people who believe prayer is integral to Bethel s spiritual life. Caring, friendly, benevolent, welcoming. Several strong leaders start and run ministries. Reflect on your passions as a church: Reaching and enfolding the lost. Fellowship. We cherish having seekers and new believers in worship and fellowship. Prayer is a very important component of reaching and enfolding the lost. Through prayer aim to uphold and encourage seekers and new believers in their developing relationship with Christ. We hold fast to the Gospel. Christian Education (in church and day school). List specific problems with which your congregation struggles: Friends are hesitant to become members. Difficulty finding elders and deacons. Majority of work is done by minority of people, as usual. Maintaining workers in ministries, giving them a pathway to form those ministries What has been the most interesting and challenging event in the life of your church in the last three years? Success in having seekers attend outreach programs, regularly attend, contribute to worship and join. For example, we made a connection with Transition House (1 block from our building), a halfway house for men who are transitioning from prison back into the community. We hold a Bible study there regularly and prepare a meal for them at our church once a month. We have gained two members from this outreach. Another example is Coffee Break, which meets October April for Bible Study (primary focus), fellowship, encouragement, and prayer. Sixteen individuals now call Bethel home via this ministry. We learn and gain from the perspective and enthusiasm of seekers. It has been challenging to extend grace to those who have not grown up with our traditions.

13 List major goals that this congregation has set for itself or opportunities the congregation anticipates: Community outreach and enfolding seekers into Christian fellowship Reaching and discipling those who are suffering and recovering from addiction Holding to Biblical teaching in order to bring it s preservative and restorative power to our community Utilize the spiritual gifts of a new pastor to lead and encourage us in reaching the unsaved in the surrounding community and ignite us with the spark of his enthusiasm. Describe what being Christians of Reformed accent means to you: Adhering to the creeds and doctrines of this denomination. Everything we do must be prayerfully Christ centered. Describe your understanding of the relationship between the local church and the Christian Reformed denomination: Following the rules of and seeking support from this structure. Partnership with a large family of believers to accomplish big goals such as undertaken by world renew. Identify some of the cultural challenges facing Christians and Christian churches today: Membership (in general) is not important Activities outside the church (such as children s athletics) compete for attention Absence of absolute truth/ Individualized concept of truth Intolerance of those who profess the One and Only God, and one pathway to salvation What have been the three most important events in the history of your church? 1. Formation of a new community outreach based congregation in Two building phases to accommodate growth from surrounding community. 3. Beginning and continuing two key ministries that arose from member calling and that identify Bethel church as a welcoming, caring and serving community. a. Coffee break/ Story hour ministers to women and their children. Several Bible study leaders and helpers with children s programs come from the community. b. BAC2ONE is an art-camp style vacation Bible school (1 week, all day). We give ~190 campers (mostly from the community) an opportunity to select from ~70 classes. Bible teaching and small group fellowship are key elements of the day. Many of the ~140 helpers are from the community.

14 Leadership : How many council members does your church have? 10 What is the length of term for council members? 3 years How often does the full council meet? monthly What subgroups of council exist, how do they function and how often do they meet?
