As you make your way in this world,
may the Loving & Disruptive Spirit of God be with you
every day and always.
We’re glad you have found your way to us!
If you’re looking for a church to call home, we’re a church where you can come just as you are.
We’re a church that loves spiritual exploration and adventure, and values living out our faith in making our community more welcoming, just, and connected.
When you’re at Bethel, you don’t need to believe one specific, one-size-fits all faith to belong—we love being on our own spiritual journeys together.
We’re grounded in the Christian tradition, but we are passionate about drawing on many sources of wisdom that inform how we live our lives today.
We don’t take ourselves too seriously. Our worship and life together as a church is full of laughter as well as tears.
At our core, we believe that faith community offers something vital for our lives and for our wider communities.
Whoever you are, and wherever you are on your path, you are welcome here. We look forward to meeting you!
