At Bethesda, we have over a century of history as a Christian community that is rich in both worship of God and service to our local and global neighborhoods. We pride ourselves in being ordinary, fumbling and fragile people who borrow Jesus’ reputation and pray we are beginning to live up to it!

We sincerely hope that in Bethesda you will find an inspiring place to worship, caring people with whom to build friendships, exciting challenges to help you grow in your spiritual life, programs and guidance to provide the support you need, and the opportunity to share your own special gifts and talents.
