Bethel CRC


“Shining Light…Showing Love”

Bethel Church is more than a building … it’s a community seeking to put the words “Shining Light…Showing Love” into action. How do we live out those words? By extending arms of love and support to each other as we grow in the Christian faith, and by giving of ourselves to the community of Acton and to the world around us. Sunday gatherings at 10am are important to us as we meet together to worship and be encouraged and challenged by biblical teaching. Ministry opportunities geared toward children, youth and adults are also an important part of who we are.
