Worship is at the heart of the Bethel community.

We believe worship is both a community activity and a personal attitude of life.  As a community there are multiple worship experiences throughout the week.  As individual members of the Body of Christ ‘living lives of worship and praise’ is the pattern of living for every waking moment of our days.

We are a worshiping community belonging to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
