NOTE: Because of restrictions imposed during the coronavirus pandemic, formal sevices in Bethel's sanctuary were suspended after March 22, 2020. After that, "virtual" online services using pre-recorded audio segments were provided with links from the "Service Page" of this web site. These continued even after unrecorded "open-air" and later inside services began at the church. Links are provided to those "online" messages in the following list.

On Sept 27, the "Youth Message" of the online service became a more general "Message" in the Church Service with a different theme. The overview "Message" then became an overview "Bible Study". Recordings of the Church messages will now be provided here.
