Welcome to Bethel A.M.E Church in Moorestown, NJ!
If you're visiting us for the first time, we've provided some information about Bethel that will be helpful. We invite you to explore our website to discover the numerous opportunities to be involved at any age.
What time are Worship Services?
Our Worship Service is at 10:30 am and ends at approximately 12:30 - 12:45 pm. Church School for Adults begins each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. while Church school for children begins after the children's altar call during the Sunday worship service. In addition, each Tuesday afternoon at 1:00 pm, there is an afternoon with the Bible session and every Wednesday at 6:00 pm, there is Bible Study with the Pastor. We invite you to come experience the love of Christ and fellowship at Bethel.
What is your worship style?
Bethel is a teaching church and we invite you to come expecting to participate in a true WORSHIP experience! Our services are filled with songs and fellowship that make the atmosphere conducive for a life-changing Word from God to go forth. Please feel free to worship with us as we invite the Holy Spirit to dwell among us during our services.
What to wear?
Dress for worship ranges from person to person. Many come to service in what is traditionally understood as their "Sunday Best", while a growing number of persons have adopted a more casual approach to dress. Whatever you decide, please come mindful that we gather to worship. God is more concerned with our hearts than our clothes, however, we ask that whatever style you wear, you will be mindful that it is worship and should be tasteful.
What to do with the kids?
We love and appreciate children at Bethel. We enjoy having them be a part of the worship experience. If your child gets cranky or needs to leave the sanctuary, our Ushers will be more than happy to assist you. Also, children are able to participate in our church school which begins following the Children's altar call during the Worship Service. The second Sunday of each month is designated as Youth Sunday, and our children lead and are a part of the entire service.
Can someone pray or talk with me?
Absolutely. When you arrive at Bethel, please inform any Usher that you would like someone to pray and/or talk with you. Our Ushers are trained to ensure that the pastor be made aware of your request and he/she will pray with you and arrange a special dedicated time and date to speak with you. We also have a prayer hotline available each Wednesday from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm by calling 856-577-2383.
How can I get involved and become a member of Bethel AME Church?
Near the close of every worship service, the pastor will "Open the Doors" to the church with an invitation to Christian Discipleship and another invitation to join and be a part of the Bethel A.M.E. Church family. All are welcomed to be a part of this Christ's church -- give the Pastor your hand, and God your heart and come join the Bethel family and fellowship. You will be warmly welcomed by our officers and members and assigned a Class Leader who will be your membership mentor. We hope to see you soon at Bethel AME Church.
