Community Worship:  Fellowship with God and With Each Other

At Bethesda, our heartbeat is following Jesus Christ, the Risen One! We’re a warm and inclusive community worship church committed to living in the way of Jesus. We gather around the Word, engage in study and mutual encouragement through the written Word, and unite our prayers for a world in need and our own lives. Faith flourishes in this welcoming community where all are embraced with open arms. You don’t have to be Lutheran or even certain of your beliefs to join us in worship. This is a house of mercy, where everyone is welcome!

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.”
Ephesians 2:8-9

9:30am Community Worship

At present, we have a single Sunday service at 9:30 am. Our service combines both traditional and contemporary music, along with the traditional Lutheran order of worship from the Evangelical Lutheran Worship hymnal. While we typically include familiar hymns and songs, we also make an effort to introduce new and less-known pieces regularly. Children are warmly invited to join us in the service, where we have a special Children’s Sermon, and we offer weekly communion that is open to everyone, regardless of their faith or membership status.

For those not comfortable with or able to worship in person, join us online through the links below.
