Learning to live and love like Jesus is a life-long journey in which we move toward a life centered in loving God and loving others.


Through learning groups and short-term classes we encourage and challenge each other to explore, learn and practice time-tested spiritual disciplines through which God’s Spirit deepens our relationship with Jesus and shapes us into people who live and love more and more like Jesus day by day.   

We hope you will take advantage of the opportunities that Bethel offers and creates to grow and progress in your faith journey.


Bethel Book Study
This group gathers each Sunday at 10:45 (in room #3) to learn how to put their faith in action as they study books by various Christian authors and dig deeper into Scripture.
Contemporary Issues – facilitated by Karl Schoenefeld

This group gathers each Sunday from 8:00-8:45 am (in the Christian Activity Center) to participate in a video-based study from Church of the Resurrection (a United Methodist Church in the Kansas City area). The group also discusses current events. Occasionally, they do special short-term studies as well.


 Children are invited to join their parents in worship.

Our preschool and early elementary children are taught lessons in Bethel’s Nursery. Bethel’s Nursery is open each Sunday morning during worship and Sunday school. Staffing is provided by a paid worker who is Safe Sanctuary certified.
