Bethel is committed to New Testament Worship. This means that preaching and teaching of the Bible are central. Music and singing are true to Scripture. Prayer, giving, and the gospel ordinances are emphasized and practiced regularly.

Music

Led by Music Director Eric Thomsen, congregational music is accompanied by piano and organ, with a weekly choir. A seasonal choir providing musicals and cantatas is open to volunteers from the congregation.

Children also play an important role at Bethel, from the annual Christmas and VBS programs, to offertories and more, we make sure children have the opportunity to be involved in the worship of the church.
