Bethel means 'House of God'

Whether you are visiting for the first time, or a longtime member, we are blessed to have you with us.

Bethel means ‘House of God’.  All are welcome in God’s house.  We take these words seriously.  We strive to be a community as diverse and hospitable as God’s emerging kingdom.  We don’t all look or act alike; God knows we don’t all think alike.  We don’t all read the Bible the same way.  We bring different questions and we carry different burdens.  But every Sunday, we worship together as one.

In this grand old church, we do Sunday morning in some pretty traditional [very Presbyterian] ways. We study the teachings and actions of Jesus.  We sing many of the same hymns our grandparents sang.  Yet, in our preaching and our prayers, we wrestle with the challenges of the modern world.  We hope your heart will hear something personal and relevant—a word of comfort, a nudge to action, a call to deepen your relationship with God.

After the worship service, please linger. Take a tour of the church.  Introduce yourself to our minister and to others.  You never know—you just might be home!
