Facility & Parking

Sunday Parking
Bethel’s parking lot is available for visitors and people with mobility limitations either permanent or temporary. People being dropped off may use the parking lot entrance or the main entrance to the building at Wisconsin Ave. All other worshipers are requested to park in the State Street Capitol Ramp. Worshipers using this ramp will need a City of Madison Parking Department “pass card,” which is specific to this ramp from 7am-1pm on Sundays. The complimentary pass cards are available at the church reception desk. The pass cards must be used or you will be required to pay to exit the ramp.

Weekday Parking
Bethel’s lot is open to staff and renters. All visitors are requested to check in with our receptionist.

Inclement Weather
In the event of inclement weather, the safety of our church members, guests, volunteers, and staff is our priority. These procedures will be followed to determine potential closures and provide for effective communications. It is up to each individual to use their best judgement when deciding whether to attend services and/or activities in person at church.
