And Making Jesus Known
In the Heart of Bethel and Beyond



Updated March 17, 2020

In an effort to keep our members safe and healthy during this time of uncertainly, our Bishop as made the decision to temporarily suspend Worship Service, small groups and church meetings for the next two weeks. This would mean that our next Worship Service would be April 5, 2020.

You can however view and listen to Pastor's Johns mini sermons videos by clicking on the links on the right side of this home page under announcements.
