At Home and Abroad

In response to the command of Christ to “Go into all the world...”, Bethany Chapel has always been keenly interested in mission work, at home and abroad. Though Bethany Chapel recognizes that missions work begins at home and seeks to encourage each Christian to be involved, it also seeks to encourage vision and action that sends her members to the four corners of the world as part of fulfilling Jesus Christ’s Great Commission mandate.

Missions Committee

It is the purpose of the Missions Committee, under the leadership of the Elders, to encourage obedience to this command in the daily life of the congregation. The Missions Committee is responsible for making known various opportunities of service, for evaluating those who express an interest, and for assessing how Bethany Chapel can continue to support those actively serving in missions. The Committee is accountable to inform the congregation of the work being done so that we may all give praise to God for His work. 

Feel free to contact the Missions Committee members:

  • Kirstyn Mackie (Chair)
  • Arlene Cummins
  • Wendi DuChene
  • Lyle Simpson
  • Chelsea Thiessen
  • Matthew Uponi
  • Ferne Watson

Short Term Mission Experiences

Short-term mission experiences are an important part of the ministry of Bethany Chapel. From time-to-time, we sponsor short term mission experiences to different locations to bless both the participants and recipients of ministry. 

These experiences promote spiritual growth, provide education about missions in general, and provide opportunities for Christian service and potentially challenge participants to consider God’s calling on their life. The experiences also provide a unique and lasting opportunity to build and experience community among those that participate.

The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of His heart from generation to generation.
