missions: serving at Bethel

SERVING AT BETHEL

We are called to be the hands and feet of Christ and we aim to do just that! Bethel offers many opportunities to serve within the walls of the church. For ways to serve outside the walls of the church check out ways we serve our community here. We’d love for you to join us.
 
If you have an idea for other ways to serve here at Bethel, please reach out by contacting Todd Bradbury or contact the church office. By serving, you can change the life of others.
 
Ministries are available for the whole family for fellowship, discipleship, growth, service and much more. Join one and get to know others. We all have gifts and passions that serve the church and community and help us each grow in our own faith in service to God. Get involved and be part of a life-changing experience as you serve together with a community of believers.
