If you're a local, you've probably passed us a dozen times.  You know...the grey stone church with the red doors, next to Beebe Hospital.  If you're new to the area, or if you've never ventured off of Route 1, well, maybe you should take a drive through Lewes.  This lovely, historic town has served as Bethel's home for over two hundred years.  But while the setting, the building, and the history are great, they're not what make Bethel Church worth visiting.  

It's the PEOPLE.  

It's how God is active and real in their lives.

It's how God's spirit pulls them together into a warm and authentic family. 

So come visit us, and experience the love and grace of God, and the fullness of joy

in being a follower of Jesus Christ and a member of the Bethel family.
