We are delighted to announce that, after a long search, God has answered our prayers for a new pastor. Please welcome Pastor James Muske to our church family. Today was his first Sunday preaching at Bethesda. Listen below to the gospel reading and his sermon.

Sunday, November 19, 2o17

Our readings during November speak of the end times. Zephaniah proclaims that the coming day of the Lord will be filled with wrath and distress. Paul says it will come like a thief in the night and urges us to be awake and sober. Jesus tells the parable of the talents, calling us to use our gifts, while we still have time, for the greater and common good. In a world filled with violence and despair, we gather around signs of hope—word, water, bread and wine—eager to welcome the good news of Christ’s coming among us.
