I am so glad you are visiting our website. I hope you will find everything you are looking for and more, and if you have any questions, whatever they may be, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. My name is Rev. Jin Bae, and I am the lead pastor here at Bethany.
In 2004, by God’s grace, an Asian congregation from a nearby church joined us to become who we are today: a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural body of Christ. It is our conviction that God formed us this way so that we can be a place for all people of all backgrounds and ethnicity. Whoever you are and whatever your life circumstance, you will find people who will greet you and love you with the loving embrace of Jesus Christ.
And it’s true. Every visitor that’s visited us have said the same thing: “I felted welcomed and loved.” And if you plan on visiting us, I hope you will make plans to stay for lunch on us. We make some amazing food! Check out our church lunch crew at Instagram!
Our worship style is a blending of both the contemporary and the traditional – we do some liturgy and sing hymns, and we have an excellent praise team that leads us in modern praise. Our worship is intentionally intergenerational with our children and youths fully engaged in worship with the adults. And we have no dress code – you can come as you are.
After worship, our children and youths will go to their respective small groups for further learning and fellowship. And adults engage in Bible study with me down in the fellowship hall.
PRESCHOOL – Next to Sanctuary Entrance
We welcome parents to bring their babies into worship because Jesus loves our little ones. As for preschoolers, we have a dedicated ministry for them at our preschool room at the back of the sanctuary. There they will sing and dance and play music, and then make crafts together. Parents are welcome to sit with them, or they can join the congregation in worship and leave the children knowing they are being cared for and loved.
ELEMENTARY MINISTRY (K-5th grade) – Pastor’s Office
Our children worship with the parents and they will have children’s sermon time during worship. After worship, the children go with their teachers to their class for learning Bible through crafts and games. They will join their parents afterwards for lunch.
YOUTH MINISTRY (6th-12th grade) – Second Floor
Our youths join the adults for worship. After worship, the youth students gather in small groups with their teachers (middle school & senior high) for further Bible study and sharing of lives. Afterwards, they join the parents and the rest of the church for lunch at the fellowship hall.
