What to Expect

We're so glad you're considering joining us this Sunday at Bethel Church! Here's some common questions you might have before you decide to your alarm clock for Sunday morning.

What does Bethel believe?

We get it! You want to know where we stand on the Bible and the doctrines within. 



What is worship like?

Worship is a genuine and natural response to the glorious story of our fall - and redemption - through the Father's loving gift of his only son, Jesus Christ, crucified on the cross on our behalf. Consequently, we believe worship includes all our responses to God – including a response with our mind (instruction from God's Word, the Bible), such as our belief in God’s worthiness (in our offering of our talents and possessions to Him), our emotions (through prayer and songs/hymns of praise), such as love and trust (care of others), and our actions and words (i.e. obedience to Christ daily).

We're an age diverse family from all walks of life, backgrounds, cultures, education and ethnicity. And, our musical style generally reflects that diversity. Thus, on a given Sunday, our musical styles incorporate both traditional and contemporary elements - old classics, high hymns of praise, choral anthems, and band-led praise songs you might hear on KSBJ. We love all styles and have fun creating a worship experience that engages all believers in praise of our Lord and Savior, Jesus.



What do I wear?

Generally, business casual is the norm at Bethel. But, don't let that hinder you. Wear whatever is comfortable for you; jeans, shorts, dresses, etc. Church should be the most authentic place in your life, so there's no need to try to be someone you're not. Come as you are and make yourself at home.


What do I do with my kids?

The safety and security of your child is a priority for us. We require all children (5th grade and under) to be checked in at one of our Bethel Kids check-in kiosks located in the Fellowship Hall and the Bethel Kids Welcome Center located on the south side of the church near the main entrance. At check-in, your children will receive name tags along with a matching claim ticket which will be required to pick up your child following the service. This will allow us to know exactly where your child is throughout the morning, and have instant access to your contact information just in case your child needs you.

Our children's programming starts at 9:30 am for all ages through Noon. Our Sunday morning schedule is as follows:

  • 9:30 am: Sunday School - divided up by appropriate ages/grades taught by loving and dedicated volunteers (background checks required). 
    • Nursery (0-2) - 9:30 am to Noon
    • Pre-School (2-4) - 9:30 am to Noon
    • Elementary Sunday School (Kindergarten - 5th grade) - 9:30 - 10:30 am
  • 11:15 am: Kid's Church - Kindergarten-5th graders are dismissed directly from the morning worship service and escorted by teachers/volunteers to the Fellowship Hall for a fun and engaging experience that includes music, small group time, and bible teaching. We know your kids are going to love it!



How do I get to Bethel?

Where do I park?

If you're coming for the first couple times, we'd invite you to take advantage of the "Visitor Parking" spots in the main parking lot (located near the front door). If that section is full, use the below map to help you find parking on a Sunday morning.
