FAQs and What to Expect
1. What should I expect when I visit?
You should expect a loving family of families! You will be greeted by many friendly and loving people. We are a generational church with many nationalities. We have a place for everyone and every age. As you visit, you will enjoy a great worship service and a powerful message with a chance to respond. Following our service, first time guests are encouraged to take a few minutes to meet our connect team, grab some refreshments, and receive a gift! If you have any questions while visiting, feel free to ask our staff, greeters, and ushers, or stop by our Info Center located near then center door entry to our sanctuary. Visitors are also invited to enjoy our Connect Breakfast, where they receive a great meal while hearing about the heart of our church.
2. What kind of music do you play and what is the preaching like?
Our worship services are diverse with a great blend of old and new. We have a well blended mix of contemporary and traditional worship. The preaching at Bethel Christian consists of truth and love. We want to point people to Jesus and do not shy away from our beliefs or the Word of God. We are a spirit-filled church and give opportunities for people to receive and respond to the message at the altars. We go "live" every Sunday at 11:00 on Facebook and YouTube, so you can check out a service before you visit or look back at past sermons on our Media page if you would like.
3. What do I wear to the church?
At Bethel Christian, you will find an array of attire. In our Sunday morning services, you will find some wearing suits and ties, while others enjoy dressing in casual wear. For our Wednesday night services, everyone is dressed very casual. Overall, we are a loving family and want you to come as you are.
4. Are my children important?
We absolutely LOVE children! The nursery is currently open, but is not staffed due to COVID precautions. Parents are free to use the nursery, but must remain with their child at all times. Children (PreK-5th grade) are welcome to join kids services on Sundays at 11:00 and mid-week classes at 7:00 on Wednesdays. Our youth (6th-12th grades) also meet in-person Wednesday nights at 7:00.
5. If I come early is there breakfast or coffee?
Right now, as a COVID-19 precaution, we are not providing coffee before service, but you are welcome to bring your own if you would like. When we are able to resume normal operation, our "Hebrews Cafe" will re-open with free regular coffee and affordable specialty coffee for purchase.
6. Where do I park and what entrance do I use?
Currently, we ask that you park in either the front parking lot (near the stop light) or the east lot (nearest the carport) for and enter either of those entrances. Our rear, school entrance, is closed on Sunday. A greeter will be at each entrance to welcome you and answer any questions you might have. If you are running late for service, please note that for security purposes, the front door is locked 15 minutes after service begins (9:45 & 11:15). If you arrive after 9:45 for the 1st service or 11:15 for the second service, you must use "Carport Entrance" located under the carport on the east side of the building.
7. What kind of precautions have you taken to keep my family safe during the COVID-19 pandemic?
The safety of our Bethel Christian family is a top priority! Some of the things we have done include: additional ministry online, offering 2 services; one for higher risk individuals and one for families and everyone else. We have designated rows for spaced seating, have propped doors open, and have closed the Hebrews Café. Hand sanitizer is available, and we no longer pass communion or offering plates down rows. Communion is pre-packaged and passed out on arrival by a greeter wearing a mask and gloves. Offering can be given in kiosks located outside the sanctuary as well as online, via text message, or by mail.
8. Are masks required to attend services?
While the Governor's mask mandate remains in effect for Cuyahoga County, we require all attendees 10 years of age and older wear masks to services.
