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 is delivered each quarter to families with children for use at home. Special 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:

    To receive and share Jesus’ message of extravagant love through compassionate care for our community and the world.

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.
