ABOUT US

Pastors Ray & Gloria Hammond founded Bethel in 1988. Over the past 30 years, Bethel has influenced the greater Boston community and even the world. Our purpose as believers is to fulfill Christ's commission to go into all the world and let people know that God loves us all and has a marvelous plan for our lives. From our Bethel family, to the greater community of Boston, the nation and the world.

IMPORTANT UPDATES

2 NEW ACTIVE WEB PAGES

+ WEEKLY CALENDAR 

COVID19

resources page 

During this challenging time we really want to be obedient shepherds and help our Bethel community as much as we can.

 

We've put together a list of community resources for free hot meals, things to do with your kids at home, and a video message from Pastor Ray in regards to services moving forward.

COVID19

sERVICES page 

Just because we cannot meet in person, does not mean

that Church services, classes, and prayer has to stop. No, the Bible tells us that we ( the people ) are the Church, and not the Bldg.

So with the help of technology

we have completely transitioned worship, Word, classes, prayer and fellowship to

online platforms until

further notice.

update

On Sunday 381+* worshippers joined us for 8 and 11 am livestream services on the church website (www.bethelame.org) and the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/TheBethelBoston/). Another 105+ people joined us for the Question & Answer and Fellowship session that followed both services. 18+ young people participated in the Middle and High School Youth Service and 51+ people participated in the 3 adult Church School classes. And then on Wednesday night, 57+ people joined Pastor Carrington for Midweek Bible Study, “Living on Purpose”, and worship leading by Sis. Leslie Michele.

This is just the start of what we’ll do to ensure that, despite the pandemic, we can still be nurtured by worship, Word, and fellowship. We can still connect with one another and care for one another. We can still find ways to be a blessing to people all around this city and all around God’s world. Stay in touch with the listserve and website so that you can get the heads-up on all the Worship Services, Bible Studies, Church School classes, Prayer Lines, and Fellowships that are being offered and how to connect with them.

This week and next you may be contacted by members of the Bethel family. They’re calling to check in on you and understand how the Bethel family can support you during this time. We’re also checking to be sure that we have the most accurate contact information for you. If you haven’t been contacted please send an email to pastorray@ bethelboston.org and we’ll have someone reach out to you.

Please be in prayer for members of the Bethel family who are recovering from COVID-19. Pray for those around the world who are dealing with the disability or death of loved ones from COVID-19. Pray for the families that are coming to Bethel every weekday to receive food for their school-age children who are in the free and reduced price meals program. Pray for those who have lost jobs and for the first responders and healthcare workers whose job exposes them to risk every day.

Finally, we need your support in two ways. First we need your financial support to continue and expand this ministry during this crisis. You can go to our website to give your tithes and offering; you can have your bank send the check; and you can certainly mail it to the church’s office (40 Walk Hill St., Boston, MA 02130). More than ever, we need your support. Second, invite your friends, family, neighbors, colleagues to join us at any and all the online ministry offerings. They will be blessed and so will you.

 

We’re off to a great start and the best is yet to come. God bless you.

 

Pastors Ray and Gloria
