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!
