We are a mission community welcoming all people seeking to know God,
especially God as revealed through Jesus Christ.

Our new vision statement is:

To welcome, include and connect with all, so that together
we learn how God would have us love and serve.


WORSHIP on Sundays at 11:00 a.m. – Please come join us for in-person worship and wear your favorite mask. 

LIVESTREAM on Sundays at 10:55 a.m. (Click here for videos of previous services and children’s messages.)

May the grace of Jesus Christ and the love of God be with each of you! 

Mt. Bethel Presbyterian Church is a member of the Presbyterian Church USA which means we really mean we welcome ALL — women to the pulpit, LGBTQ at the altar, doubters and wanderers to ask, seek, and knock. We believe now is exactly the time to live into a vision emphasizing that we must learn TOGETHER how to love and serve God. 

Please add your voice to all those we need to hear as we seek to follow Jesus Christ faithfully into healing and reconciling ministries throughout our community. We treasure each guest, each friend, each member. Blessings on your day!

Rev. Marguerite Sirrine, Transitional Pastor
