Loving one another through discipleship and care—the ways that we make community, grow in our faith, and care for all. Bethel celebrates that it is a large community. But  there are many ways to connect and get involved. Small groups, women’s circles, volunteer opportunities, education, and care giving are just some of the ways faith is lived out in this vibrant community.
