We are having outdoor worship (in our parking lot) on Sundays at 10:15 a.m. (weather permitting).
 You can also join us for virtual worship on our website. We will let you know when this changes.


Bethel United Church of Christ

Our vision is to be united in seeking God's will and serving all people.

What we value most about Bethel UCC are its people and its sense of family, our worship and education experiences,
and Bethel's history of generous outreach and mission. We believe our greatest assets are our people, our location and facility,
and our commitment to mission. What we want in the future is a growing church where love,
acceptance, and tolerance prevail
; a church that continues and expands its emphasis
on mission in our community and beyond. We are an inclusive church.
Because we affirm the face of God in all, we fully welcome and include people of all abilities,
ages, cultures, gender identities, races, sexual orientations, and socio-economic backgrounds
​​​​​​​into our life and ministry. This qualifies us as an
Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ.


We are united through Christ

God Is Love

God loves all people -- No exceptions

We have come to know God decisively in Jesus Christ. Jesus is our teacher, example, brother and Lord.

God sends the Holy Spirit to challenge and support us. The spirit calls us to acts of justice and mercy.

We take the Bible seriously but not literally.

We believe faith and science enliven and enrich each other.

The church is the way through which we participate in God's love for the world.


We seek:

To be people of integrity, following Jesus' example.

To care for the earth and all of creation.

To celebrate diversity while seeking unity.

To make a difference in the lives of an individual, families, our community and society. 


Come as you are

When you walk through our doors you may see people in suits and ties, but you will also see people in jeans and t-shirts.
We want to make sure when you visit you are comfortable.  When you come into the parking lot, visitor parking is directly to your right.
There is a circle drive that provides easy drop off for those that prefer not to walk in from the parking lot. This is a handicap accessible entrance
and there is always someone willing to offer a helping hand getting in and out of vehicles. Once in the lobby, which we refer to as the Narthex,
there is a visitors center that has hearing aids that are connected to our sound system. Ushers will provide a bulletin at the doors that lead into the sanctuary. Our services have many places where the congregation will respond aloud, reading from the bulletin. Feel free to follow along or read silently.
Hymn numbers are also listed in the bulletin. There are attendence pads located in the pew backs. Please let us know you were here! 

If you need any assistance, please let us know.
