We look forward to having you join us! Here are some things that will help you know what to expect:
- Where do I go? – Our parking lot wraps to the left and right of the main church building. If you go to the right side, there are reserved guest parking spots next to the main building. When you get out of your car, you will be right at our welcome center. The greeters there will have information for you and be able to guide you around our facilities.
- What about my kids? – Children are important to God, and to us too! During our 9:30am Sunday school time, your children will be in classes with other kids their age that are taught by screened volunteers. For our 10:45am service, they will begin in the auditorium with you, and those who are 3rd grade and younger will be dismissed before the preaching time to a Children’s church time that is geared specifically towards them. Our nursery is available each service for infants up to 2 years old. The welcome center greeters will be able to show you where each classroom is located.
- What style of worship do you have? – We have traditional style music and services at Bethel. Our songs are a mix of both old and new hymns, gospel songs and choruses. Our congregational singing is accompanied by piano and organ music, as well as a small orchestra. Our adult choir sings in each service, and we have special instrumental music as well.
- What should I wear? – You will find a mixture of dress at Bethel. While many of our people attend church dressed in traditional attire (coat, tie, etc.), we also have members and visitors who dress more causally (sport shirts, jeans, etc.).
- Should I bring my Bible? – We encourage each person to bring a Bible to Bethel. Each service includes preaching and teaching from the Bible. During our morning service (10:45am), we typically read the Scripture for the message out loud as a group. This reading is from the King James Version, but you are welcome to bring any translation with you. If you do not have a Bible but would like one, speak to one of our greeters and they would be glad to get one for you.
