Upcoming Events & Information

Saturday Evening Jazz Service

Join us on the first Saturday of the month for our Jazz Service. Everyone is welcome.

Lenten Bible Study

Pack your bags people of First Bethel Church! Weíre going on a journey to uncover Scripture and its meaning across history. Each Wednesday night at 6:30 we will gather at the church and join Bible historian Ray Vander Laan on location in Israel and throughout the Middle East in an adventure in biblical learning. Through a fascinating study of history, culture, and geography, you will discover insight and meaning too many of the Biblical stories from the last week of Jesusí life. Together, we will learn how to confront the challenges of today with an emboldened faith in Jesus Christ. Join us!

Maundy Thursday Dramatic Worship!

Join Jesus and his disciples in the Upper Room on Thursday April 2 at 7:30 p.m. for a dramatic portrayal of the Lordís final evening with his friends. Our Gathering in the Upper Room allows you to hear the disciplesí thoughts as Jesus reveals his betrayal and listen as they recall their time with him. Share in the Last Supper, let beautiful music touch your heart, and accompany Jesus as he departs for the Garden of Gathesemane.

Good Friday Tenebrae Service

One of the most powerful and poignant days of the year, Good Friday brings Jesus face to face with forces of darkness in its attempt to snuff out the light of Godís love. Be with us on Friday evening, April 3 at 7:30 p.m. for our Tenebrae Service as we remember Jesusí last hours and the love which led him to the cross. Retrace his steps, remember his passion, and resolve to keep watch, for though darkness appears to have won, something big is about to happen!
