I’m New to Bethel Lutheran

Dear Visitor,
That you are visiting our website may indicate that you are looking for a church home. We are grateful that you have put Bethel on your list! There are many excellent churches in the Northfield area so we encourage you to look around.

We invite you to worship with us on Sunday morning and sense the excitement we feel as a congregation in Christ. Our purpose and identity can be summed up in one phrase: Building Disciples for Christ and his Kingdom. Information on this website will tell the story of our disciple-making work with children, youth and adults. It is our hope that you may find some connections between your interests and our ministries.

If, after you have completed your visits to congregations on your short list, you wish to become part of this congregation, our Membership Team will help you through that process. But there’s no hurry. Take your time. The choice of a new congregation is truly one of the most important decisions you can make. In the meantime, you are always welcome here.


Pastor Timothy P. McDermott
