What to Expect

What is your Sunday schedule?

Sunday school is offered for children and adults at 9:15. Worship takes place at 10:30.

We now have two worship opportunities that take place simultaneously at 10:30. Our traditional service that takes place in our sanctuary and the non-tradition "Worship Cafe" that meets in our Family Life Center. 

Who attends Bethel?

We are diverse in age, background and income, yet share a strong, Bible-based, conservative faith following Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Where should I park?

Parking is available in the paved area in front of the church as well as behind the church on the left side. Designated spaces for those with disabilities are clearly marked and located near entrance doors.  Those with preschoolers may wish to park closest to the children’s building on the right side of the front of the church and marked Weekday School.

What should I wear?

Come to Bethel just as you are. We’re comfortable with what you’re comfortable with and you’ll see a range of dress among the people attending church.

What happens during a Worship Service?

Service lasts approximately one hour and includes singing, praying, scripture reading and a sermon.

How many people attend your Worship Services?

Attendance varies on any given Sunday but Bethel usually welcomes around 400 people.

What programs are available for my children?

Sunday School is available for children in preschool through high school from 9:15-10:00. Middle and high school children meet in the house across the street from our main campus in what we call “Bethel Haven.” During our worship service kindergartners through second graders are invited to sit with their loved ones in the sanctuary and then join Junior Worship after the children’s message.

Childcare is available for infants-preschoolers while you attend Sunday School and Worship. Simply enter through the childcare wing on the right side of the front of the church and a greeter will be happy to help you register your child. You will receive a pager to insure that you can be reached should your child need you while you are attending worship.
