"Peace to you!" from
Pastor Jon Cox

Thank you for visiting the Bethel website! 

Bethel is a family of believers in the one true God.  He has done all that the world needs to be saved from sin.

Jesus Christ, is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Through faith in his life, death, and resurrection, all people may have forgiveness of sins and life in heaven.

No matter what troubles may confront us in this life, God promises to provide for all life, to care for his believers, and to work through all circumstances to bring about good for those who love him.

I have been a pastor since 1992, and have had the privilege to serve many people in various situations. I want to serve you too.

If you would like any spiritual or pastoral care from me, questions answered, prayers prayed, or just a listening ear, please call me on my cell phone or send an email message to me.

Faith Related Q and A

I would like to speak to a Christian counselor who shares my faith beliefs about some very difficult personal matters. Can you refer me to someone in the Greater Milwaukee, Racine or Kenosha area? I am feeling alienated from my home church and do not know where to turn. Thanks.
Christian Family Solutions, a WELS-affiliated ministry, offers in-person counseling in the Greater Milwaukee area and video counseling from the privacy of your home. You can learn more about their services here. God’s blessings to you!
I am interested in the history of the practice of Holy Communion in the WELS I experienced as a child, versus today. When I was young, members who chose not to take Holy Communion would be ushered out, then the service of Holy Communion would begin. When/why did that practice change, to now including it as part of the entire worship service?
What you experienced was not a synod-wide practice. Then, as now, local congregations made revisions to long-standing worship practices. Some congregations acquiesced to worshipers who left before the celebration of the Lord’s Supper by providing an early Benediction for them. Other congregations intentionally brought the Holy Communion service to an end before the consecration and distribution of the elements, and ushered out those worshipers who were not communing. The worshipers who remained often participated in an “Order of the Confessional Service” and then the reception of the Lord’s Supper. Recognizing the use of opening and closing hymns, liturgical worship services—with or without the Lord’s Supper—begin with the Invocation and end with the Benediction. Hymnals, then and now, reflected that structure of the worship service. Your question tells me you are seeing more consistent implementation of that structure today.
