Everyone is welcome to our congregational activities.

Sunday Schedule

9:30 am First hour
10:30 am Worship
12 noon Fellowship meal

Sunday June 4 begins our summer Sunday schedule with no first hour or weekly fellowship meal. The sermon series is “Reflecting on what lasts” where pastors Doug Kaufman and Brenda Meyer reflect on their 23 and 27 years at Benton. What has been important to them and what might the Spirit be doing now and into the future?

Current worship series is “God loves EveryBody” exploring belonging and gifts of people with disabilities. Our disappointment on how long the new and improved lift was taking to be installed has now turned to joy that it is working!

A Zoom option for worship is available. For a link contact pastors Doug Kaufman at doug at bentonchurch.org or Brenda Meyer at brenda at bentonchurch.org.

This commitment means increasing our awareness of power and privilege as we stretch ourselves to become more inclusive and loving in all our relationships.
