What can I expect on my visit?
You can't miss our new building at the corner of Carson and Vera Street. As you approach the building, one of our greeters will meet you and direct you to the right classes and services. They can also answer other questions you may have. Most adults attend our worship service where they enjoy the beautiful and inspiring music of the choir, ensembles, and soloists.
The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Rudy Abrot. This service is a little over one hour in length. Also, at 10:00 there are Sunday School Classes. These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people, enjoy perhaps some coffee and donuts, and hear a teaching lesson more directly applicable to you. The best way to get to know people at Bethel Baptist Church is to visit one of these adult Bible classes.
Where do I take my children?
Starting with loving nurseries, there is something special for every age child. At every service there are safe, clean, and highly staffed nurseries for children five year old and under. For children four years old through sixth grade there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child.
We have greeters and ushers located all around the building who would like to help you find the appropriate nurseries, classes, and services for every person in your family. Our greeters and ushers are located all around around campus as well as in the lobby of the main worship center and will gladly help direct and even escort you to the right place. Children's classes are divided into the following categories: Nurseries, Toddlers, 1st–2nd grade, 3rd–4th grade, and 5th–6th grade.
What about my teens?
We have a very active and vibrant youth ministry here at Bethel Baptist Church. Most of the teens attend a sunday school class for one hour and then attend the main service for another hour with their parents.
how should I dress?
There is not a dress code at Bethel Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Bethel Baptist Church!
Who is Pastor Rudy Abrot?

Am I expected to participate in the Offering?
