Mt. Bethel engages all members in the task of caring for one another. We organize congregational care in this way:
Prayer requests may be sent to the church office via phone message or email email@example.com. Please indicate whether the request should be shared only with the pastor or whether it can be shared with the Board of Deacons and congregation.
The Board of Deacons is a group of ordained, caring individuals who each have a “flock list” of church friends and members. Members are encouraged to contact their deacons with prayer requests, meal train requests, and any celebrations we can share together. Each regular worshipper at Mt. Bethel should have an assigned Deacon and know who their deacon is, so they can contact them when needed.
Each month, a deacon serves as Deacon On Call. So does an Elder. These folks are elected to their ordained positions by the congregation and are your representatives and resources. If you have any questions about the church they will be happy to answer them or direct you to where the answers are.
The pastor welcomes invitations to home visits or outdoor visits with those who are more comfortable, given COVID concerns. Call the church office if you would like to schedule a home visit with the pastor. Once hospital visits are allowed again, the pastor will be making visits to area hospitals.
In the meantime, if you have a family member or friend staying at one of the regional hospitals, you can have a card with a personalized message delivered at no charge.
