At Bethel, our mission is to help people be disciples - life-long learners & followers of Jesus Christ. Discipleship means God awakening disciples from head knowledge of the faith to "heart life."
A "disciple" is one who is walking on the road with Jesus to find out about Him; a seeker of divine Wisdom; a follower of Jesus; a learner; even from the very moment that someone begins asking questions about Jesus, they are on the path of discipleship.
Bernie's Blessing Coat, Glove, Hat & Shoe Drive
We collect coats, gloves, warm hats and men's shoes for Bernie to distribute on the streets of Chicago on Christmas Eve. For over 24 years the people of Bethel have donated many, many coats that are given to the homeless who are out in the cold and bad weather. Check back in November for how we can all donate warm gloves, warm hats and men's shoes of all kinds. Contact the Bethel office at 847-244-9647 with any questions.
