What to Expect

We are eager for you to join us for a worship service! Our services are a blend of contemporary and traditional. A typical service includes worship music, prayer, communion (usually on the first weekend of the month), and preaching from the Bible.

On several Sundays each month, we see a video recording of the sermon, while the preaching pastor is live at another campus. See our Preaching Schedule.

After the service, you will have an opportunity to pray with a pastor or prayer team member. Visit the Info Booth outside the Sanctuary to ask a question or pick up printed materials. Coffee is served in the Commons and all are invited to linger and connect! 

  • Stop by the “Visitor Welcome” table near the main entrance in the Commons for refreshments, a small gift, and information about Bethlehem. 
  • During the school year, come to the Getting Acquainted With Bethlehem class to meet pastors, learn about our church, and connect with others.
  • Nursery care is available during worship services for children ages birth–3 years.
  • Sunday School classes meet at 9am or 11am. Some classes for adults meet year-round. Classes for children and youth are offered during the school year. 
  • Speakers of Chinese and Russian are invited hear a translation of the sermon. Headsets are available at the Info Booth. Contacts: Chinese Ministry – email David Zhang (612-345-1006) and Russian Ministry – email Nadia Afanasyeva (651-336-0361)

Ministries

Sunday and midweek ministries encourage believers of all ages in their walk with God and strengthen our church body to “grow so that it builds itself up in love” (Ephesians 4:16).

Nursery

We welcome children ages birth–3 years to be cared for during worship services and special events. A team of caregivers leads children in age-appropriate playtime, shares God-centered stories and songs, and prays for each child.

We are eager to partner with parents as we announce births & adoptions, host Child Dedication Services, and provide nursery care in hopes that even the littles ones among us will have a firm foundation for loving Jesus.

Parents fill out a Family Registration form (link to come) to register children for nursery care and check in at a kiosk upon arrival to print a name tag for each child.
