van de Klashorst
I am so glad to be part of what God is doing here at Mt Bethel. Life is complex, but as we follow Jesus and study his word, we
become more of who he made us to be. In our care and service for one another, we reflect his love for us.
I invite you to explore your faith, ask the hard questions, and do what God has made you to do. Doing so will
bring him glory and joy, and will fill your soul with hope!
Join us for church this weekend- you'll find the welcome of Christ among us.
Hope to see you soon!
When does everything start?
Our worship service starts at 10:45am on Sundays. If you like, come at 9:30am for some coffee, light refreshments, and Bible study. Bring the kids- we have the Crib, Bible Buddies and LOL groups for them at 9:30am as well. If you are in Middle or High School, worship with us! Our ROC youth group meets every Sunday from 4-6pm during the school year. Check out our Grow and Learn page for more information!
What should I wear?
Wear what makes you comfortable! We’re more concerned with you and faith journey than with what you wear. So dress casually, and you’ll fit right in- Jeans, kahkis, shorts, and weekend casual are more common around here than suits, ties, or high heels.
Will I have to do anything weird?
No at all! At Mt Bethel, no one will single you out, ask you to stand, or wear a name-tag. You can just be as anonymous as you like.
You'll likely get a friendly smile, a warm “hello,” and offer of our hand, but you’ll never feel any pressure or be asked to do anything you don’t want to do. Participate as you feel comfortable- which we hope will be right away!
Do you expect me to give money?
Give as you feel moved to. The offering is for those who are part of the Mt Bethel family, our regular attenders and members.
Giving back to God a portion of what we have earned is one aspect of worship, but it’s not expected of our guests. Instead of wanting you to give something, we want you to get something: being encouraged by the service.
Mt Bethel is the steward of one of the oldest church cemeteries in Rockingham County, NC. We serve the membership of the church, as well as community families who desire to be laid to rest inthe community they love.
Much has happened since the church was established in 1857. There are sites of those who died during the civil war years, and there are some unmarked sites of those who died still in slavery. The church honors their memory and is working on diginifed means to mark their location as part of history.
We are humbled to serve our church members and community with this special part of our property. It reminds us that while we must all endure death, we are safe in the arms of the Father, who has promised us a very real resurrection through Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
Please contact the church office if you have questions related to our cemetery- we'd be glad to talk to you!
