Betel Mission Interest Meeting
August 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us Sunday August 6th @ 12:00pm in the Welcome Center for an Interest Meeting and find out more about joining us on a mission trip to Birmingham England.
Pastor Jeff & Beth Martin, members here at Ironbridge Church have a relationship with Kent and MaryAlice Martin, founders and directors of Betel through a shared previous involvement in the same church network. We believe God may be inviting Ironbridge Church through this relationship to possibly partner with Betel as they minister and plant churches across The United Kingdom and Europe.
A Note from Pastor Jeff:
You are invited to be a part of this exploratory team traveling to Birmingham England to serve alongside a group of people seeking out the homeless and marginalized with the Good News of Jesus Christ, letting them know that freedom and life are theirs for the taking. Betel is the name of this organization and we will be helping them renovate a newly acquired space in the center of Birmingham which will be used as their new and improved worship center.
I (Jeff) have served alongside these Betelitos at different times and have been changed for the better as a result. I know we will be going to help out in whatever way we can. That being said, my experience has been that I receive from them far more than I give. Expect to hear stories of how Jesus has set men and women free. Expect your own faith to be enlarged. Expect God to use you in both anticipated and surprising ways.
In addition to the renovation work, we will be living alongside the men and women who are a part of the Betel community, sharing meals, sharing in morning devotions, doing chores, etc.
You will not return the same!
