Welcome back! We are now open for in-person worship Sunday mornings at 8:30 and 10:30 am. Masks are required. Singing is permitted.
We will also still be live-streaming at 10:30 am.
Frontline Ministries, led by John Maina, works with the women in Langata Prison in Nairobi, Kenya. Langata is the largest women’s prison in Kenya.
During the pandemic, they have continued to work with the women by providing Welfare Support, Legal Support, Evacuation Support, Psych-Spiritual Support, and Health Support.
In addition, a number of the women have babies with them in prison, and Frontline assists the mothers in learning to care for their infants.
Another program run by Frontline is the “Rescuing Rahab” ministry, a ministry designed to help young college ladies get out of the commercial sex trade. Frontline intervenes when the young ladies are arrested and are under probation. They provide one-on-one ministry by trained Christian women. They are encouraged to become a part of a support group and are eventually linked with Christian women in churches for ongoing support and integration into the life of the church. The ladies are trained to become entrepreneurs and are provided micro-loans to start a business. Their progress is monitored as they are provided psych-social support within the church.
Frontline Ministries — Kenya is the Mission of the Month for January. When our Servant Teams went to Kenya, we always met with John Maina and his team, and we had the opportunity to visit the women in the prison. Please consider supporting them with your prayers. You may also support them financially through Bethel by directing your gift to “Frontline Ministries – Kenya.”
NEW WORSHIP SCHEDULE
We have changed our worship schedule to now offer 2 services for anyone to attend:
8:30 am (a blended service) for in-person worship only, and
10:30 am (contemporary service) which will be in-person and online.
WE’RE HERE TO HELP!
As we navigate the CoVid-19 situation please know that we are here to serve our Bethel community, and beyond. If you have a need or know of someone who does, you can contact us and we’ll do our best to assist you. We have people on a list who are ready to help. Please continue to pray for those in the health care field who are working tirelessly and putting themselves at risk as they triage and treat others, those with compromised immune systems and other underlying health issues, and also those who have been laid off work and left with an uncertain future. In the midst of the uncertainties we’re facing, it is our hope and prayer that you are doing well and that you know the peace and hope that is ours in Jesus.
