Sunday Morning Worship is central to everything what we do at Bethel. The Church gathers together every Sunday Morning at 10:30am for a time to worship our Maker, Savior, and Lord. You can expect to worship through a mix of contemporary songs and historic hymns. There is a time dedicated to intercessory prayer for those in need. The Word of God is central to our Worship. God comes to us through His Word, showing us our great spiritual need and comforting us with the hope of salvation in the work of Jesus Christ.
Once a month the Church gathers together to receive the Lord's Supper. Shortly after our Worship Service those who would like to receive the Sacrament gather in the sanctuary for a time of confession, prayer, the Sacrament and testimonies.
