Following the Risen One

Community Worship to Follow God in the Way of Jesus

Following Jesus Christ the Risen One is our heartbeat at Bethesda! We are a community worship church striving to follow God in the way of Jesus. We gather around the Word and Sacraments in worship, the written Word in study and mutual encouragement, and we gather our prayers for this broken world and our fragile lives. Faith is cultivated and nurtured in this welcoming community.

“If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.”
Luke 9:23

Traditional Service

The 9:30am service follows a traditional Lutheran order of service, derived from the Evangelical Lutheran Worship hymnal. The organ provides main accompaniment to the choir, with the occasional piano-led piece. We generally stick to well-known hymns, but try to introduce more unfamiliar pieces on a regular basis.

Sunday School

During the school year, we hold Sunday School for kiddos at 10:45am. Bethesda’s children can participate in arts, crafts, songs, and education. Click here to learn more about our Youth Programs.
