Currently, we are enjoying online services through Zoom, and people from all over America are tuning in on Sundays to experience our ministerial services. The feedback from all of our members and friends has been very positive. They love the fact that they are able to praise God with like minded Christians no matter where they live. Bethel Presbyterian Church is a blessed congregation that is being lead by our heavenly Father. We praise his name for his guidance. Our long term goal is to continue these online services even after we return to our Church building when COVID-19 is no longer a threat.
We are praying to our Lord to lead us to the right minister for us, and we anticipate that a decision will be made this year. In the meantime, we will continue doing what we are called to do, and we praise God everyday for all of the blessings that he has bestowed on us. Each Sunday, we receive the assurance that we are on the right path, as we welcome various pastors who deliver stimulating messages to our congregation. We hope you will join every Sunday at 10:00am.
Bethel Presbyterian Church, "A Small Church With A Big Vision"' was founded and organized in 1884 to create an opportunity for African Americans to develop their talents for leadership and participate in doing the work of Jesus Christ. Our mission is to allow the Holy Spirit to call people to a Life of Faith in Jesus Christ and to become part of His body, which is the Church. We strive to share the our Christian Ministry, utilizing the talents and gifts that God has given to each person. To achieve these goals, Bethel seeks to promote the spiritual growth of each member, from preschooler to Senior Citizen through Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, Bible Study, Leadership Training, The Preached Word, and Ministries growing out of the needs of the congregation and community.
Bethel Presbyterian Church, Sunday worship is filled with spirit, song, and fellowship. Bethel's services have changed over the years.
The Music & Worship Committee is in charge of organizing a Liturgist schedule for the year. Each member and friend of Bethel is invited to act as the leader and assist the Pastor during a Sunday Service. These duties include leading the Call to Worship, Responsive and Scriptural Readings and all other Corporate prayers included in our Order of Service.
We are a close-knit church family that always welcomes visitors. We also hope that those visitors may feel called to become members of our family.

The Prayers of the People has become an uplifting part of our service, giving members and friends the opportunity to lift their joys and concerns. This is also the time we join together as a body and allows members time to come forward for prayer or for personal rededication.
We end our service with a Moment of Silent Reflection, so that we can center ourselves on the Word before leaving our "sanctuary" to rejoin the "World".
The church provides several special services during the year such as Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and Youth Day.
We also celebrate the Church calendar holidays of Palm Sunday, Easter, Advent Season and Christmas and other special days.
Last year, 2020, we celebrated our Service to the Lord with our "138th Anniversary Celebration".
