How We Serve

We exist to love God, love people, and make disciples of Jesus Christ. Out of this mission, joyful service is the overflow of discipleship, serving those in and outside the church. One of the ways we pursue and live out this discipleship trait is through volunteer opportunities.
At Bethel Church, we are passionate about loving people and making disciples of Jesus Christ. We believe God has uniquely gifted and called each of us to play a part in advancing his kingdom in the region, nation and even throughout the world.
