What can I expect?

How long is a Bethel CHURCH service?

In total, a Bethel Church service is about 75 minutes in length. Services begin with worship singing - song lyrics are projected onto a screen so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the opening song, one of our elders will welcome everyone and go into a time of sharing. After sharing we typically continue worship singing; then our pastor will share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.

Of course, we always want to allow Holy Spirit to move in our midst so we allow our services to follow his leading.

What's the culture like at bethel Church?

Sunday's at Bethel are casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.

What about my kids?

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at Children's Church, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, all of our volunteers are required to take a Child Safety training course before they can serve and it's renewed in accordance to our insurance guidelines.
