Our Worship

Worship at Bethlehem

Worship is central to the life of our congregation. Bethlehem UCC offers a broad worship experience with a wide variety of music at both our 8:30AM and 10AM services.





Our 8:30 service is not held in the main sanctuary but rather, in our smaller, more intimate chapel. Soloists and small choral groups regularly provide ministry through music. The service is followed by fellowship time in the Schmale Lounge, right next to the chapel.




Our 10 a.m. service is held in our sanctuary and is regularly broadcast live on 1600 AM WAAM Radio. The worship format is blended worship, incorporating various styles of music and presentation of scripture.

The Bethlehem Choir typically provides special music offerings in addition to professional vocal and instrumental soloists in the area. We are also fortunate to have a handbell choir and Quartet, comprised of Bethlehem congregants.


Children receive their very own message in our 10:00 service, usually shared by our Senior Pastor or our Minister of Spiritual Growth & Development. Children are then encouraged to attend our safe, high-energy, and engaging Sunday School classes.  


The 10:00 service is followed by fellowship time in the Fellowship Hall. The same message is shared at both the 8:30 and 10:00 services.




We celebrate the Lord’s Supper during worship on the first Sunday of each month, in addition to special times in the Church Year (Pentecost, Easter, Christmas Eve, etc.) While there is no pressure to partake in communion, at Bethlehem UCC, we believe the table is open to all. 




Bethlehem Church has been broadcasting services at 1600 on the AM dial since 1951, when the station was called WHRV before being purchased and named WAAM in 1963.

Donations in any amount can be made to the Gifts and Memorials Radio fund.

If individuals, families or groups want to sponsor an individual week, the cost is $230.
