Welcome to Bethel!

Connecting people with Christ

Caring for the World

Changing Lives

We're so glad you decided to stop by and get aquainted with us! After you have browsed through these pages, we invite you to come and meet us in person. You will always be welcome.

We think you'll find a vibrant small church with a big heart. A place where people care about each other. A place where people care about the world we live in.  A place where you are encouraged to discover and become all God wants you to be.

Being a part of Bethel is like finding a second family. So, welcome to Bethel. And welcome home!

Weird Animals VBS

Slink, slither or stomp on over to Weird Animals VBS! 

Each night, we begin with a kid-friendly dinner at the Critter Café, followed by tons of fun in One-Of-a-Kind Bible Adventures, having a blast in Untamed Games, and making science-y gizmos in Imagination Station. We wrap up the night with Tail End Stampede, a wild time of singing and sharing that no matter what, "Jesus Loves You!"

There are "Zoo Crews" for kids in Pre-K to 6th grade, and a Youth Group too.

Starting time is 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Family and friends are invited to join us for the closing program on Friday at 8:00 p.m.

June 23 - June 28, 2014
