When You Walk in the Doors
When visiting Bethel, you will be warmly greeted by the many friendly people in our church. Many people dress casually, wearing jeans or other everyday styles, while a few wear more formal clothing, like slacks and a tie. Feel free to come as you are!
Our services typically last around one hour. Nursery care is available downstairs for young children (infant to 2 years) and we also welcome all ages in the sanctuary for worship.
After each morning service, we enjoy a time of refreshments and fellowship. Stay for coffee and let us get to know you!
Bethel's worship is about the glory of God first and foremost. Edification of the worshiper is the result of focusing on God and his glory.
Bethel overall has a blended style of worship. We use a traditional order of worship with a call to worship, confession of sin, assurance of grace, prayer, offering, sermon, and benediction.
Our songs reflect the variety of church music from the past and present and the unity of scriptural truths for every generation. We sing a mix of old and new hymns and contemporary praise songs, chosen to stir our hearts and voices in praise and to turn our minds to God’s glory and to the truth revealed in His word.
You will find we use a variety of instruments including piano, drums, guitar, brass, and organ on occasion. We seek to use our members' talents to God's glory, so one Sunday you may be led by the piano and on another you may find a mix of instrumentalists leading worship, using both old hymns and contemporary songs.
Sermons at Bethel seek to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and show how the Gospel applies to our daily lives. Each Sunday a Bible text is explained and applied in way that is Christ-centered. Sermon series usually are through books of a Bible or based on a portion of a book of the Bible.
