  • Our summer bible study with Francis Chan starts tonight!  Everyone is welcome – 7 pm – in the prayer room/ya meeting room. 7 exciting weeks in the book of James.
  • BBQ @ Britannia Beach on July 13th at 6 pm  – be there!   Bring a lawn chair or blanket and all your friends.  It’s a night of food, sports and hangs.   Sign up with Tamara so we know how many to expect.  It’s going to be amazing.
  • #thenakedtruthcampaign starts today- we are tackling the problem with porn and how it’s hijacking people’s lives.  You weren’t born to be a victim – but a warrior and we are bringing this into the light so it loses power.  Let’s fight this together.    Go to #thenakedtruthcampaign on instagram or FB


Backpacking in the city with Capital City Mission was an incredible night of bringing not only food but the love of Jesus to so many hurting people on the streets.  We went out in 4 teams and all got to pray for a lot of people struggling with drug/alcohol addiction.  Many people asked for prayer – some cried as we laid our hands on them and asked Jesus to intervene and make Himself known to them.  It felt a bit like the book of Acts.    This experience is a huge reminder of the needs in our city and how much Jesus loves people!  Let’s do it again! See pics below.

The Movement Hosts Sanctuary



We were super excited to see 7 young adults be baptized in the Holy Spirit and 1 young adult rededicated their life to Jesus at our last service.   Sometimes we wonder, where are the miracles? We witnessed several at that service! If you were baptized in the Holy Spirit we encourage you to use that language every single day! The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 4: 4 “Anyone who speaks in a tongue edifies themselves” (you build yourself up) and the purpose is power to tell people the most amazing news they ever get to hear. This is a gift and it’s available to every single person who knows Jesus.

We also had an amazing outreach at the Strip Club – come to our April meeting to hear all about it.

If you are on the Bethel greeter team – please check your schedules and arrive at 10 am. Thanks so much for serving.

Together we can see lives changed but it takes EVERY SINGLE ONE of us.   Lead the way – fall in love with Jesus, step out, take risks, look for people who are alone and invite them into our community, worship with abandon, cry out to God, serve, be visible and tell your friends about Jesus!

Love you all! Believing in you!

Pastor Sandra

5 More Days!



March 9th @ 7pm – pre service prayer at 6:30pm.  Start praying today that you will receive EVERYTHING the Holy Spirit has for you!  This night could change your life.  I’m already praying for you!

We had a great experience spreading the love at Carleton University handing out popcorn to eager students who waited in line, which gave us an opportunity to talk.   Imagine if Christians were known as the MOST loving people on the earth. Imagine if people came to Bethel and the Movement and said, “whoa – this is unreal – how can people love like this?  They only speak encouragement to each other – they serve each other, they care about the hurting and the poor, they came and talked to me and invited me into their community” – YES! I think that’s what Jesus had in mind when he said this, “Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other.”  John 13:35

Can we be this kind of group/church?
