Bethel Hosts Angel Seminar
The Bethel Church, which means “house of God,” hosted the 2017 Angel Seminar Oct. 21 through Nov. 11, 2017. The seminar was held at the Yupiit Cultural Center in Bethel, Alaska, and was led by Monte Church, North Pacific Union Conference Native ministry assistant, and his team, in concert with the Bethel Church.
This seminar was supported by NPUC, and the team did a phenomenal job in preaching the gospel of Christ to interested attendees. Each night, Church opened the Word of God and taught in a clear and concise way what it truly means to be a Christian and accept the gift of salvation.
“Learn to Lean on Jesus” was the highlight of the music each night. Bruce Twing, the main artist, was joined by other guest singers from the Native and Korean communities.
With something for everyone, the children's program, led by team members Tom and Sharon Kingsbury, helped the children to learn more about God's second book, nature, as well as the God who created it. Crafts and other activities were enjoyed by those who attended, including at least one child who had never attended the church before.
Because of the seminar, five people were baptized and became a part of the Bethel Church membership.
It was a thrill for church members, their families and friends from the community to gather around the pool to witness the candidates express their final declaration that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior of their lives.
The seminar ended with Church delivering the last message, that everyone should have love for one another. We hope that God will continue to use the members of the Bethel Seventh-day Adventist Church to win souls for His kingdom and make Bethel a house of God.
