Visiting any church for the first time can be a bit awkward and can make anyone a little nervous. Where do I go? What time is everything? Is there something for my kids? What can I expect? You may have questions like these. We want to remove the anxiousness and put you at ease.

During worship, an offering will be taken. We don’t invite you to Bethel for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God’s Word, and a place where you can grow in God’s grace. Please don’t feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest. We do ask if you are visiting that you share your communication card with us by placing it in the offering plate.

We want your first visit to Bethel to be refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family. Our hope is you will experience inspiring worship, help teaching and preaching , friendly people, and a place where you feel both welcome and at home. To help with this we have tried to answer some questions we think you might have. If you have others just let us know how we can help.

We have a fellowship time before Sunday school class starting at 9:10 am. This can be a great way to meet people and ask questions. There is always something sweet to eat and hot coffee. Sunday School starts at 9:30 am with classes for various age groups. Sunday morning worship begins at 10:30 am and lasts for about an hour. On Wednesday nights we have Bible studies at 6:00 pm with a Church Conference at 6:30 pm on every 3rd Wednesday.

During worship, we typically sing hymns. Occasionally there may be special music sung by a group or an individual. Sometimes the children's or youth ministry will share as well. We may have lyrics on screen, but we also have hymnals in the pews. Worship music is blended with favorite hymns and some newer music.

Pastor Chris preaches through Bible passages helping us to be able to apply them to our daily life. He says he preaches "Monday Morning Messages." His goal is to take us verse by verse through a text in such a way that the next day we could easily share it with others Monday morning in the breakroom, ball field, and boardroom. Bro. Chris desires for you to read whichever version or translation you feel most comfortable with.

If you are worried about what to wear, most members wear jeans or slacks with a shirt. On a rare occasion, someone may wear a suit or jacket. Kids often wear what is most comfortable for them. Worship is about your heart, not your clothes.

Bethel is a real church full of real people. Our church is made up of imperfect people trying to live for God and do life the right way.
