Last Week

Last Fusion of the year

Last Wednesday we concluded our regular Fusion meetings for the year. Our students gathered for some amazing messy games. This has been an awesome year for Fusion and it has been so encouraging to see students growing in their faith and in relationships with one another and adult volunteers! Keith our new youth director has been a great addition to the team this year, we can’t wait to see what is next for this ministry partnership.

Greetings from the Northwest Conference Annual Meeting

This last week a few of us got a chance to attend our conference’s Annual Meeting. The focus was on Developing Leaders. We are so blessed to have a conference that is active

These meetings are often a great reminder that we are not out here on our own. In fact we belong to a much larger family of churches in our region and country that are all working to be found Faithful and Fruitful in our diverse and changing contexts. We are also reminded of how blessed we are to be supported by such an amazing conference staff who works very hard to help us live out our calling right here in Pierce County.

One thing the leaders of our conference asked us for as pastors and churches is to keep them in our prayers. So as you read this I invite you to pray this week for each of the members of our conference staff. Their ministry is so important to our church and all the others in our conference.

Mark Stromberg, Superintendent

Jon Kramka, Director of Congregational Vitality

Mike Brown, Director of Church Planting

Kara Stromberg, Director of Children & Family Ministry

Ginny Olson, Director of Youth Ministry

Jeff Burton, Director of Pastoral Care & Development

Cheryl Theilen, Director of Administration

Greg Ellis, Coordinator for CHET Northwest Conference

Sandy Norris, Director of Finance

Yours in Christ

Pastor Todd

Join us Sundays as we focus on sharing our faith with others.

Pray for Bethel

  1. Pray that we will make individual connections and build relationships of trust with people who don’t know Jesus.
  2. Pray that God will draw unchurched people closer to him through Bethel Covenant.
  3. Pray that God will raise up our future leaders
  4. Finally pray for me, your Pastor.


About Us

Bethel Covenant Church is a gathering of disciples of Jesus Christ located outside Ellsworth, Wisconsin. As a body of believers, our desire is to be known for pursuing Christ and his love for us, our friends, families and neighbors, and for pursuing his priorities in the world.

God is doing great things at Bethel and He longs for a deeper relationship with each one of us. We don't have it all figured out but we invite you to join us as we worship God together, study scripture, connect and grow with each other in community, and use our talents and gifts to serve our church, our community and our world.
