Welcome to Bethel June 2019

Welcome Visitors!

Phone: 703-825-5557 (office hours vary, please leave a message) Fellowship Times Sunday following worship zoom and Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm by zoom. We often share worship services with Arlington Church of the Brethren whose building we share. It is ideal to be on our email list in order to get notices and Zoom links for these special services.

WE MEET BY ZOOM every Sunday at 9:50 am. Everyone is welcome to join us! Bethel is open, and affirming no matter what you situation in life or who you are, and especially who you love, we welcome you to join us for worship and be part of this community of faith. We begin with meditation time accompanied often by music prior to announcements and a Call To Worship. Click this link to be admitted - there is a short wait in our "waiting room". For information on contacting by phone please contact one of our pastors.

Upcoming Events


Children’s Sunday School The pastor welcomes children to worship towards the beginning of the zoom worship service with conversation and a story time. Materials for Sunday school are sent at times to families with children for use at home. Special in-person and sometimes virtual events are designed during each quarter. Contact us if you wish to be on the email list for children's resources, or if you have children who would like to benefit from our Christian education material at home. Communion on first Sundays. Zoom does not prevent our communing. You are invited to use whatever elements you have on hand; juice, water, wine, bread, crackers, chips. Members and friends participate at the same time, while muted to allow the presiding minister to share the litany of communion.

Who Are We?

Bethel is a welcoming and affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ. Our vision is:

This vision inspires us to be a church of mission where we seek to:

  1. Know God and one another and open ourselves to be known.
  2. Be a church where people are comforted, encouraged, and challenged by God’s Word.
  3. Serve as God’s hands of mercy, affirming justice and peace in the world. 
  4. Welcome and celebrate the diversity of people and thought, encouraging each individual’s relationship with Christ.

We still volunteer at AFAC to bag vegetables and food that will be distributed during AFAC business hours. Those who volunteer wear masks and keep social distance in order to protect each other while serving the Arlingtonians in need.
