Everyone is welcome at Bethesda, whatever your story, your questions, your doubts or your struggles. We're about doing life together in community, being intentional about our growth as people and serving one another and our broader community along the way.

We've made a few changes to the website over the summer! We hope you like the updated format. If you have questions about navigating the new site, please feel free to call 402-723-4562 or email the church office.

The Mennonite Central Committee Canner project will be at Bethesda November 23, 24, 25 along with Faith & Life Bookstore from Newton, Kansas.

Closing Information

Occasional bad weather may necessitate cancelling or postponing activities at church for the safety of our members and staff. Pastors and staff will determine if events at Bethesda should be cancelled/postponed when bad weather, power outages, storms or tornadoes occur. Typically, if Heartland Community School is closed or is closing early, Bethesda will follow their lead and cancel events at church.

  • Closing information will be posted on the website, local cable t.v.,1370 KAWL Radio and Heartland Beat.
  • Junior high and high school youth and parents will be notified by text.
  • You may call the church office at 402-723-4562 or the Office Manager at 402-723-4693 (home) or 402-694-1422 (cell) if you have questions regarding closings.
