As Lutherans, we follow a liturgy, with a similar structure for worship each week. We greet one another, sing, pray, hear Bible readings and a sermon. You will catch on quickly - Ask someone near you if you have any questions!
You can expect a friendly, welcoming environment. All are welcome here. We value enriching worship and gifted music ministry. We celebrate Communion almost every worship and all are invited to come forward to receive the Sacrament.
We invite you to bring your children to all services. They bring energy and joy, and lots of smiles. Don't worry if a child is busy or making a joyful noise. We want them here with us!
Following worship, children engage biblical stories through music and other fun activities.
We are an informal community at Bethesda. On any given Sunday you'll find some people in jeans and casuals shirts and others who prefer business casual attire and still some who like a Sunday dress or suit and tie. We come together from all walks of life to worship and honor our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and we find the condition of our heart is far more important than the contents of our closet. Come as you are, and feel at home with us.
You are welcome to park in our parking lot at 450 Whitney Avenue or find street parking on Saint Ronan Street.
People will greet you and find out what you are interested in! Talk to the pastor or vicar, and they will try to help. Ask lots of questions - we are glad that you want to know more!
