April 22, 2020

Dear brothers and sisters,

            We joyfully greet you in the name of our precious and dear Lord Jesus! “Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!” (1 Corinthians 1:3)

            Although we are going through an unusually difficult period of time, we know that God has a plan with us, with our homes and with the entire world. In this time of pandemic, we have more time to concentrate upon reading the Bible, prayer, drawing closer to the Lord and we are joyful in the fellowship we have with the dear ones in our families.

            This Sunday will be the sixth since we interrupted regular services in the sanctuary, but we thank our heavenly Father for the alternative option of online services and for all those who have passionately implicated themselves in realizing these services. Even though we cannot see you physically, we carry you in prayer, asking for the protection and blessing of God to be upon your lives and families. Even though the Governor of Illinois announced a “stay at home” period until the beginning of May, we do not yet know how things will evolve, reason for which we will organize future church events according to the information we currently have from the authorities.

            We will continue to transmit live:

1.      The regular church services on the church website,, and on Facebook,

Sunday morning, 10:00 am    ||   Sunday evening, 6:00 pm    ||   Thursday, 7:00 pm

2.      Friday, 7:00 pm, the youth services will be on Facebook at

3.      Tuesday, 7:00 pm, the pastor’s sermon for encouragement of the church and evangelization for the unconverted will continue on Facebook

Thursday will remain a day of fasting for church members. If there are members who need help, have needs they cannot meet, we ask them to please contact the Senior Pastor or the Assistant Pastors: Luigi Mițoi (847) 544-1132; David Măgduț  (773) 715-2701; Viorel Lozneanu (773) 848-8733. If the elderly or those who are alone are in need of help, food or medicine, please contact one of the following people: David Laza (773) 663-9488; Cosmin Cnejevici (847) 772-0565; Dan Muncaciu (773) 936-4813.

            If you are in need of prayer, if you are ill at home or at the hospital, we ask that you contact pastors Viorel Lozneanu (773) 848-8737 or Petru Lorincz (847) 774-1501. If recently-wed families (up to 7 years of marriage) are in need of help, advice, counseling, we invite them to contact pastor David Măgduț (773) 715-2701.

            Because we are getting ready to celebrate Holy Communion on the morning of May 3rd, we`ll organize our fellowship with the body and blood of the Lord within our families, proceeding in the same manner as we did in April, when we had the community Holy Communion. The distribution of the elements of Holy Communion will be at the Christian Center, doors #1 and #8:

Friday, May 1st, between the hours of 10:00 am – 12:00 pm and 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

-  Saturday, May 2nd, between the hours of 10:00 am – 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

      Sunday evening, May 10, we will have a live service for Mother’s Day. We will announce a new date for the water baptism once we know when we can begin having services in the church sanctuary. We invite the church members to volunteer to help for various administrative tasks – for details please contact brother Daniel Brazovan or Daniel Rumpel.

    We thank you and we appreciate the donations that you have generously given in the month of April for the expenses of the House of the Lord. Without the certainty that the authorities will allow us to resume normal services in the sanctuary, we encourage you to continue giving generously to the Lord, who cares for us, using the following methods:

1. Donating online directly into the church’s bank account. Address: Bethany Romanian Independent Pentecostal Church, account number 001115002001956

2. Using QuickPay, email address: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

3. Using the DONATE button on the main page of the church’s website (

4. Sending a check by mail to the church’s address: 7301 N. Caldwell Ave., Niles, IL 60714. You will find an envelope attached to this letter for this method.

5. On the 1st and 2nd of May, when we come to the church parking lot to pick up the elements for Holy Communion, we have the opportunity to bring our gift to the Lord, by putting it in the donation box that will be on the table where we pick up the Communion elements. 

With longing and hope, we await the day when we can be together in the church, in the midst of celebration, filled with the Spirit and with passion for the God who sustains our lives, who has protected our homes and has blessed us with more than what we needed. May His name be honored and praised forever!

We assure you that we are carrying you in prayer. May God protect your lives and families, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

“May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.“ (1 Thessalonians 5:23)


Pastor Luigi Mițoi and the Church Board

"The Good Shepherd" is a Christian TV program that was established in 1997 in Portland, Oregon, as part of The Messengers Mission. In the beginning, this TV evangelization project was broadcasted locally only, in several Romanian cities. Starting with 2003, the program began to be broadcasted on TELE7abc channel, and starting with 2004, on OTV national channel.


The program is now broadcasted twice a week on OTV channel, and through the INTELSAT 1002 satellite, it can be viewed throughout Europe.
