"First of all, as someone with all relatives back East, Bethel means extended family to me. The congregation is a wonderful blend of ages, ethnicity, and beliefs. It’s core concept revolves around showing love (not just talking about it) especially to those less fortunate. Finally, Bethel means a sense of freedom to me. You can feel it with the way the children roam about, or the enjoyment of fellowship (both at church and after). As a musician, I’m appreciative of the various styles of worship material and approaches we are encouraged to perform. Thanks both to our pastor and the many people that give so much of themselves to make Bethel a beacon of light."
