Way back when we met in person, Bethel's Pastors encouraged visitors to fill out "connect" forms that were available to all in attendance. Every visitor who took the time to fill out the form received a welcome note from Pastor John and fresh-baked cookies at their door courtesy of the Bethel welcoming committee. the tradition lives on -- please click here: to fill out an online version of the "Connect" form.
Bethel’s Church Council has developed a Re-entering Our Facilities Plan, which is a staged approach to safely get us back together for in-person worship. Click here to read the full plan.
- Bethel will live stream and broadcast services for the foreseeable future
- In-person worship will begin at a to-be-determined date (we assume sometime this summer) with limited seating
- We will move between the plan’s stages based on guidance from a variety of sources and will make changes as needed
Please join us in communion by sharing bread and wine or juice at home (the bread and wine/juice can be whatever you have on hand)
WEEKLY WORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
