If you are thinking about joining us in worship this Sunday, we want you to feel welcome and at home. Like every church, Bethel Fellowship has its own unique features. We are a congregation of Anabaptists with roots in the Amish tradition, which makes us even more distinct. We have compiled some information below, to help you make the most of your visit.
Our Sunday school time begins at 9:30 a.m. We sing a few songs as a congregation followed by a devotional from one of the laymen. We then divide into smaller groups for Sunday school classes for a time of Bible Study. The children find their classes by age. There is a youth class for young men and one for young ladies. The adults have eight classes; four for the men and four for the ladies.
Following Sunday school time we gather together in the sanctuary for worship. We will sing a number of songs before we have the sermon. You will find that we love singing old hymns, without musical accompaniment.
1Co 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
For our Sunday morning service we practice the tradition that ladies sit on one side of the sanctuary and men on the other. This tradition has been handed down to us through many generations. It is completely acceptable for visiting families and couples to sit together if they wish.
