Events – Bethel Church and Ministries



    May 14

    Worship Night

    6:30 PM - 8:00 PM


    As we begin to walk down the path of what we pray is the beginning of the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, and now that our counties have loosened restrictions, we want to celebrate the faithfulness of God together. When the pandemic hit, one of the first things to get canceled was a worship night. So, as we begin to open back up, it seems that a worship night is one of the first things we should do. 

    Join us on Friday, May 14 at 6:30pm in the Crown Point Auditorium. We'll gather and lift up a mighty song of praise for who God is and ALL that He has done.

    Childcare is not available. No registration required. We hope you’ll join us!

    1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
