A Loving Family of Families!
We are a multi-ethnic and multi-generational church. We are a spirited filled church with passionate preaching, and powerful, blended contemporary worship.
Come join us! All are welcome!
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, services are online Sundays at 11:00 and Wednesdays at 7:00 on Facebook and Youtube.
Frequently asked Questions 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 the pastors, 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.
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! For the time being, our ministry to children looks a lot different because of COVID-19. Our nursery, preschool, and kids church are not meeting until we are sure we can do so in a way that we know they will be safe! Pastor Edgar has a game, activity, or object lesson at 10:50 before the Family service each week. You can also join Imagine Kids Ministry on Facebook at 2:00pm Sundays and 6:00pm Wednesdays for worship and a great lesson geared to our kids! Our youth (6th-12th grades) and young adults (college & career) have resumed their ministries in-person Wednesday nights at 7:00 and all students and young adults are invited to join!
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 moving kids ministry online, offering Wednesday and Sunday services online on Facebook and YouTube, and 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 Cafe. 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?
No. We are not mandating that masks are worn, but we do ask that you keep proper distance from others. If you are more comfortable wearing a mask, you are welcome to do so and would not be alone in that decision. Our greeters and staff members will be wearing masks when in common areas as well.
If you have any questions, please fill out a “Contact Us” form on this website and a staff member will get back with you as soon as they can.
