That will give you enough time to park in our assigned parking behind the church, grab some complimentary fresh brewed coffee and donuts, and find a seat before the service begins. We kick off the service promptly at 11:15 am.[/vc_column_text][vc_text_separator title=””][vc_text_separator title=””][vc_custom_heading text=”SERVICE TIME & DURATION” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:left|color:%23000000″ google_fonts=”font_family:Lato%3A100%2C100italic%2C300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic%2C900%2C900italic|font_style:700%20bold%20regular%3A700%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]Our service time begins at 11:15 am. and usually lasts about and hour and a half, but is lead by the spirit…so we aren’t making any promises.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_separator][vc_custom_heading text=”DRESS” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:left|color:%23000000″ google_fonts=”font_family:Lato%3A100%2C100italic%2C300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic%2C900%2C900italic|font_style:700%20bold%20regular%3A700%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]Bethlehem-Wiley United Methodist Church welcomes everyone just as they are. Some people dress up and others dress very casually.

  • We always have music that is upbeat, fun, and praise worthy, but sometimes we mix in some traditional songs. Don’t worry you don’t have to sing, but if you would like to we provide lyrics so you can follow along. This portion of the service lasts about 20 minutes.

  • The messages are always relevant Biblical messages that are straight-forward and applicable to life today.

  • As part of our weekly services we do take up an offering. If you are a guest, please do not feel any pressure or obligation to give. This is an act of worship for our regular attendees, allowing them to thank God for all of the great work HE is doing in their lives and to give back to help continue the work of the church.

They have their own music and dancing. One of our core values is to invest the best in the next generation, so we care deeply about our children.
