Welcome – Discover Bethel!

We're glad you are here

We are excited to introduce you to our church. Bethel is a vibrant place to worship, a caring institution and stands as a Christian Leader in the community.

If you are looking for a church home, Bethel Lutheran Church offers a New Member Orientation 101 class. These classes are for those interested in membership at Bethel Lutheran Church and those seeking more information on Bethel’s mission and ministries. The New Member Orientation 101 class is a one night event and attendance is required by all who wish to become members of Bethel Lutheran Church.

A Membership 201 session, “I am a Lutheran: What does this mean?” is available for those seeking more information about the Lutheran church and a chance to meet the pastors during the three night session. If you have been confirmed in the Lutheran Church, it is not necessary you attend these classes; however, you are highly encouraged to do so.

The Reception of New Member Weekend is when individuals officially are members of Bethel Lutheran Church. Plan to attend one of our weekend services as we welcome you to your new church home.
