Bethlehem Church is committed to providing patoral service to the body of Christ and the communities it serves.


You will experience inspiring messages that will draw you closer in your relationship with Jesus and will be challenged to become involved in various areas of ministry, identifying and utilizing your spiritual gifts that God will use to build up the church.  


Our pastoral ministry includes servant leadership including visits with the infirmed in the community and area hospitals and care facilities who are unable to attend church services regularly. 


Our Senior Pastor Tim Heath interacts with all age groups, from the youngest to the oldest. You will be welcomeed and encouraged to join the  fellowship and become involved in God's work. 


Senior Pastor Tim Heath and his wife Gail began their role in ministry at Bethlehem on 6-19-16. We look forward to seing God work in and through us as we continue to actively seek God's leadership and direction and remain obedient to the call to accomplish the mission and purpose that God has called us to. 



Nursery Ministry

The Nursery Ministry is dedicated to providing loving care to your infants and toddlers during functions on our campus. Our desire is to provide a service to the parents of small children so they can participate in other ministries and outreach functions without the worry of arranging for child care during that time. While in the care of our Nursery staff, your children will receive loving care and and exposure to brief sessions of teaching and videos that are designed to captivate them with stories from the Bible and character building principles.

Sunday School Ministry

Our Sunday School hour begins at 10:00 am on Sunday morning. Classes provide an opportunity for young and old alike to learn and share God's Word from Genesis through Revelation. The setting in each classroom is designed for the particular age group so the students and teachers are in an environment that will foster attention to God's Word which is presented with age based curriculum. 


We extend a welcome to you and would like to see you in Sunday School each week!

Youth Ministry

The Youth Ministry is generally divided into three groups to more appropriately address the needs of specific age groups. At times all groups may meet together to participate in joint activities that may include their parents as well. 


The Youth Groups meet weekly on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM in the Learning Center

Activities designed to teach Biblical truths are prepared which challenge our youth to be more than hearers of the Word but to get out and do it. Opportunities are offered for the youth to participate in outreach in the community and surrounding areas. 

Ladies' Auxiliary Ministry

The Ladies' Auxiliary meets on the second Monday each month at 7:00 PM.


Our ladies respond graciously to various needs in the church and community and prepare and serve meals to bereaved families whose loved one has passed away. 


Ladies are invited to attend and become a part of the ladies' ministry at Bethlehem.

Senior Adult Ministry

Our Senior Fellowship Ministry meets monthly on the fourth Thursday at 6:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall.


Following the meal, a speaker shares from God's Word and special music is provided.


At Bethlehem, our Seniors are not considered too old to be involved.  We rely on them as mentors, counselors, encouragers, and prayer warriors for the younger generations who carry on the various ministries.


Senior adults are invited to attend and become a part of this ministry. 

Deacon's Ministry

The Deacons meet monthly on the first Thursday of each month for prayer and to review and respond to benevolent needs within the church membership and the surrounding communities.

Encouraging team membership in maintaining a winsome personal witness wherever they go that fosters opportunities to share and explain God’s grace and mercy to anyone who is searching and in need of the Savior.



Identifying, soliciting and encouraging those within the body who are gifted with musical and technical gifts to actively participate by offering their gift back to the Lord for the edification of the body.

Maintaining personal accountability in the team for being personally and jointly prepared spiritually, musically and technically to the best of our ability.


Bringing Honor & Glory to God – Worshiping

Our main purpose is not to entertain or display individual or choral talent. It is the blending of many talents for communicating spiritual truths through the medium of music and providing inspiration, warmth, and unity to a service which results in praise and worship of Almighty God, while avoiding attracting attention to ourselves.
