in the Sanctuary (4th Sunday of the month)

In celebration of the different types of music we can use to Praise God, the fourth Sunday of June, July and August will feature a praise and worship team leading the hymns.  Our service will have the same structure as it usually does but will feature hymns and musical offerings led by a group of singers and instrumentalists consisting of drums, guitar, bass and keyboards. 

If you are a vocalist and willing to participate in ANY of the below Sunday worship services, you are invited and encouraged to contact Brock A. Besse, Minister of Music and Worship at besse@bethellutheran.com.

Participating in a Sunday worship service requires attendance at the rehearsals mentioned below.  Praise and worship music is up-beat, energetic, joyous and meaningful.  Help us make a joyful noise unto the Lord!  This year we only have one rehearsal the Wednesday before each Sunday worship service.
