At Bethel one of our core values is that we value all generations. As such our worship planning is mindful of the different needs of different generations.
Welcome to the music and worship department!
Contemporary (First Service)
Our worship is contemporary in that we believe it is vital that we be in touch with the current culture. It has less to do with “style” than with awareness of what will communicate best in our present culture. (You will hear and experience many styles, from classical to the latest Praise and Worship). We make use of media, video, and modern worship styles. The worship is also blended so it also includes some more traditional elements such as hymns and scripture readings. The goal of the worship music is to provide opportunity for you to experience God in a real and vital way and to support the overall emphasis of that particular week.
Traditional Worship Service
At Bethel we also honor the traditional richness of Lutheran Worship. This service has the same goals as the contemporary service but is traditional in worship style as it led by our beautiful pipe organ and includes hymns and traditional liturgy. It is a moving worship experience for those who desire perhaps a quieter and certainly traditional approach.
