WHAT TO EXPECT

Bethlehem Church is a Christian community that glorifies God. Our hope for you when you come to Bethlehem is that you find a loving and safe community that allows you to experience God’s love and hear His call for your life. We strive to make Bethlehem a welcoming place, so you don’t need to worry about what to wear or what you need to do. We invite you to come and allow us to help you in your journey to know God.

  • During the Service

    MUSIC: Whether you want to sit down and think about what is being sung or if you want to stand with your hands stretched to the sky, at Bethlehem we are open to the many different expressions of worship. Each worship leader brings their own artistic style to our morning worship. Feel free to worship God in a way that is comfortable to you.

    PRAYER: God gave us the gift of prayer. We pray for God’s direction, provision, wisdom, and healing.

    OFFERING: We give money as a way to partner with God in the work He is doing in the world. Our offering is for members and regular attenders. If you are new to Bethlehem, there is no pressure to give.

    SERMON: You will hear a sermon that is grounded in the Bible. We believe that the Bible is God’s Word to us, and we want to base our lives on its teachings.

    COMMUNION: The first Sunday of the month during our combined service (all Bethlehem language groups) we celebrate Communion to remember the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. If you are a follower of Jesus you are invited to celebrate Communion with us.

  • Before You Leave

    You'll be greeted by Pastor Paul (and probably one of his kids!) at the door before you leave. We are glad you joined us!
