Thank you! Thank you for visiting us on our website. You have many churches to choose from and we appreciate your time to investigate Bethel.
Why Bethel Evangelical Free Church?
Bethel is a warm, caring, and welcoming church. We teach from the Bible and have music that is intended to lead us to worship God.
Our mission statement reveals our heart:
Bethel exists to glorify God by inviting people into a life-changing relationship with Christ and His followers.
Our focus is God, people, and life-change. We hope that by being a part of Bethel, God transforms your life as well.
What about parking & entering the building?
We have a parking lot immediately beside our building. Please enter the front doors of the church (the doors facing Amboy Road). If you have a stroller or wheelchair, we do have a ramp on the side of the building facing the parking lot.
What does a typical Sunday look like?
Our schedule for a typical Sunday looks like this:
9:30 AM – Adult Sunday School
10:45 AM – Worship Service/Children’s Church
The regular Sunday worship schedule includes music, Bible reading, prayer, and a sermon from the Bible. Children’s church takes place downstairs.
Please check the calendar to see if any changes have been made or if there are any special events for that Sunday.
What style of music will I find at Bethel?
We sing a mix of contemporary Christian music and traditional music. We lean more toward the contemporary side. Below is a Spotify playlist of our current songs. This playlist gives you an idea of what you would find on any Sunday morning.
What about my children?
Your children will be cared for by loving teachers during the worship service. A nursery on the main level cares for children from newborn to age 3. For elementary school children, we provide children’s church downstairs. The children gather with their teachers during the greeting time in the lobby before going to their separate classrooms.
When you plan your visit, you can let us know that you are coming so that we have a place for you.
Bethel has expositional sermons. We preach from the Bible so that we hear what God has to say to us.
Is Bethel connected to any denomination?
We are a church connected to the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA). The EFCA is committed to Jesus Christ, to the gospel and to one another. As an association of churches that aligns itself with the statement of faith, we are distinct yet deeply connected. More than 1300 EFCA churches currently exist with efforts to plant even more.
The evangelical part of our name means that we are committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ as revealed in the Bible. The Bible is our authority for how we live our lives and how we operate as a church.
The free part of our name reveals our commitment to the local assembly of the church. Each member church of the EFCA is autonomous.
