Ministries of Bethesda
God has blessed us with an awesome Ministerial Team. We are witnesses of how being faithful over a few things, God will bless us with more! We have watched our ministerial team grow and develop, and as a result God, has given them increase in responsibility and opportunity. The congregation is reminded that the Ministerial Team is an extension of the pastor, in their ministry assignment, and we are to show our appreciation for our ministerial team by supporting them and following them as they follow Christ.
Transformation Through Whole Bread Ministry
Wholeness comes from the Greek words holos and holokleros, meaning, all entire and
complete. These two words come from the noun holokeria, meaning completeness, and in the biblical context, wholeness means being well in spirit, mind, body, and soul.
In 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24, Paul prays, “Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus comes again. God will make this happen, for He who calls you is faithful.” Our Whole Bread Ministry promotes the congregation being well in spirit, mind, body, and soul by planning and implementing programs, activities, and special spiritual formation that encourages us to be good stewards of our bodies, embrace Jesus Our Healer, and practice the lifestyle of a Christian.
In 2016, there will be opportunities to participate in exercise classes, workshops and health awareness campaigns.
