Sundays at Bethany North
If you are new to Bethany North, we know there’s nothing quite like visiting a new church for the first time; there are so many new faces and strange places, and it feels as if you stand out. But know that you’re not alone—we have all been there. As a church, we want to be a place where you feel welcome and at ease. If you do visit on a Sunday, grab a cup of coffee in the Commons before the service, and stop by the information desk—we would love to meet you!
Coffee Time: 10:15–10:50am
What to Expect
Bethany North provides a low-key, casual atmosphere in our worship services. We invite you to come as you are and participate in as much or as little of the service as you like.
Just inside the door, you will find greeters who can help you find your way. If you have children, our volunteers will walk you through our security system and show you where the classrooms are. Children from 0 through pre-kindergarten have class during the whole service; children in kindergarten and older attend the worship service until just before the sermon, when they are dismissed to go to their classes. Find out more about what we have for kids, including locations and times.
Each worship service lasts for about 75 minutes. We typically begin with a few worship songs, followed by announcements and perhaps a moment to dedicate a child and their parents to God (more information on baby dedications). An offering plate is passed, and then we dismiss the children. Next, there is a scripture reading and a sermon on that passage. The service closes with a couple more songs, and then we are dismissed.
We have coffee available between the two services in the Commons, which gives us a chance to meet each other. Please note that coffee is not allowed in the Performing Arts Center where we host our worship services.
Please let us know how we can make you feel at home.
