Responding to Needs
Bethel has served the South Bay for more than 50 years through ministries for children and youth, adults, and seniors. Planted in the heart of Silicon Valley, the Bethel community seeks to grow in relationship to God and to all people through worship, study, and service to neighbors both near and far. Join us for worship—and may you experience Christ’s healing, call, and transformation in your life.
In the Fall of 2013, Bethel adopted the following ministry goals:
- Rooted in Scripture and the Lutheran faith tradition, we strive to more fully experience God’s love, grow deeper in faith, and better serve others in Christian love.
- We assist one another in being disciples for Christ and embracing the unique ways that each person shares the love and hope of Jesus, builds community, and strengthens relationships.
- While based in Lutheran theology, we acknowledge the need to respond to our changing culture and adapt our worship and service so that they remain relevant and meaningful.
- We seek to be a welcoming and spiritually vibrant place of Christian faith, grace, and love in the midst of its surrounding Silicon Valley community.
