What to Expect on a Sunday

Sunday In-Person Services

We are looking forward to meeting and enjoying our time together. Church will continue to look a bit different because our priority is to create a safe and enjoyable experience here at Bethel Brandon for you, other guests and volunteers. For information on our response to current Manitoba Health orders and COVID-19, please click here.

 

What time is Church?

Church starts at 10:30 a.m.

 

What is the parking like?

When you arrive at Bethel for one of our services, you can park in the front parking lot and use the west entrance. There is good signage to help you find your way. We also have marked Wheelchair and Seniors parking spaces.

 

Where do I go?

There will be some friendly people that say hello and answer any questions you might have. They will also explain and help you with our new seating arrangement. If you have children, there is a kiosk for you to check to learn more about our amazing Children's Ministry.

They will guide you to your children's classroom, or you can choose to keep them with you in the main auditorium.

 

Where do my children go?

[email protected] is a wonderful Children's Ministry during our Sunday morning services for children six months to Grade 4. During check-in, we will ask you to fill out a short registration form and give you a name tag for your child(ren). There is also a class for children in grades 5-8.

We have developed a safe, clean and loving environment for your children. All of our volunteers and staff are screened and trained to work with children. We want you to know your children are safe and well cared for. Of course, if your children are shy, they're welcome to attend the adult service with you, but most children enjoy the children's classes.

How should I dress?

You'll notice that everyone is dressed comfortably, in anything from jeans and sneakers to suits or office casual. Naturally, you should wear what you're comfortable wearing.

 

What's the music like?

The service usually begins with some upbeat music. We sing most of the current music and some older hymns too. We use various instruments, including piano, drums, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, and occasionally violin.

If you don't know the songs, the words are displayed on screens for your convenience or feel free to listen. We like to incorporate multimedia into our service, so you may see videos and stage lights during service. We also livestream our Sunday service, so you will see a few video cameras on stands.

 

Will we ask for money?

We do provide an opportunity for our regular attendees to give an offering each week. We believe that tithes and offerings are an important part of the believer's relationship with Jesus Christ. Please don't feel compelled to give; we hope you'll simply be our guest. We do hope you'll fill out the digital Connect Card during the service. Text "connect" to 204-817-8333. We would love to be in touch and see how you are doing and if there is anything we can pray for.

 

What is the preaching like?

The messages are interesting, enjoyable, and relevant to daily life. The message will always be Biblically based. Hopefully, you'll laugh at times and maybe feel a tug at your heart, too – our goal is to invite you to a life that matters.

 

How long is it?

We focus on spending quality time in God's presence but also honouring your time. The service will be 60 minutes.

Parents, children's ministry continues for fifteen minutes after the service ends, so you can spend time with Jesus or say "Hi" to a friend if you choose. When you pick up your kids from their classrooms, they will ask you for the pick-up tag you were given at check-in. Children are only released to adults that have that pick-up tag that is unique to your family.
