Helping Hands

Bethel wants to ensure that both the spiritual and physical needs of its members and others are met with love and compassion. With this in mind, the mandate of the Helping Hands committee is to serve both members and non-members of the Bethel Congregation when in special need or crisis. This might include severe illness, bereavement, personal tragedy or trauma, extended convalescence and after child birth. In these situations the committee would like to ensure that the basic personal needs are met. This would include meal preparation, cleaning and tidying, doing laundry, yard clean-up, driving, organizing babysitting etc. If you require assistance in any area please contact the helping hands committee or the deacons.

Tithing At Bethel

At Bethel URC, we believe that tithing is an important means of being obedient to God, showing our gratitude and providing help for fellow Christians and the needy in this world. The duty of collecting tithes for Bethel URC is placed upon the deacons of the church. During each worship service a free will offering is taken for various causes that are supported by the Church. The congregation is encouraged to give joyfully to the offering, that their gift might be a blessing unto others. 

Collection Notes

Collection notes are prepaid notes that come in $1, $2 and $5 denominations. These notes can be placed in the offering and designate that amount to be given for a specific cause. 

Giving Envelopes

In order to help facilitate giving, envelopes are placed in the pews at the church for the use of the congregation. On the envelope the individual can identify their name, collection number, the cause and amount they are placing in the envelope. They can also specify if they are contributing to the general budget of the Church or if they wish to order collection notes from the deacons.

Reformation Christian Ministries

The purpose of Reformation Christian Ministries is Gospel-centered education and outreach aimed at Reformation. Let us be clear that when we say Gospel-centered, we speak of the true biblical Gospel which is set forth in Scripture and rooted only in the works and obedience of the Lord Jesus Christ to which man can offer nothing nor do anything. When we say that we are Gospel-centered, we mean that this true Gospel is the only building block for life in fellowship and communion with God. As this is God's world, everything that man does in his body and with the resources of creation must be done for His glory. As a result, out of this Gospel-centered foundation, there is a resultant culture which issues forth from within individuals who have been made anew by the Holy Spirit of God which has potential impact throughout an entire society, and in this global age, throughout the entire world. As such, we see our work as an integral part of the Great Commission given by Christ to His church on earth, under whose authority and oversight we carry it out.

Rehoboth Christian Ministries

Rehoboth Christian Ministries adheres to the fundamental premise that there must be equity for all people regardless of their level of intellectual functioning, physical appearance and abilities, social awareness and skills, degree of dependency, physical and mental health, social status, income, race, color, religious beliefs, or cultural background.

All people have equal rights, freedoms, opportunities and privileges as citizens in society. The responsibility of the Christian Community is to implement the will of God in terms of asserting the dignity and equality of developmentally disabled individuals and to assist them in developing their potentials towards greater independence and a better quality of life.

Rehoboth, a Christian Association serving the Mentally Handicapped of Alberta, was formed in 1976 by members of the Christian community to offer services to individuals with disabilities and their families by meeting the objectives in our Mission Statement.

Wycliffe

Today about 340 million people do not have the Bible in their own language. Wycliffe’s vision is to see the Bible accessible to all people in the language they understand best. To make this vision a reality, Wycliffe also focuses on community development, literacy development and church partnerships.

Wycliffe works all around the world. Currently our efforts serve languages spoken in more than 90 countries. The majority of the remaining translation needs represent minority languages—relatively small people groups, many of which struggle to maintain their identity in the shadow of majority culture. Often these groups have no written language of their own, and many struggle to gain the literacy skills they need to prosper in the majority culture.

The benefits of translation and literacy for these minority language groups are many. They include better health as a result of access to medical information, economic growth due to the acquisition of marketable skills, and the preservation of culture thanks to a written history. Most importantly, Bible translation brings people closer to God Himself—the One who transforms hearts.
