A message from Pastor Butler
Bethel Lutheran Church is a congregation steeped in a rich history of over 250 years of ministry in the Dutch Fork—a history of which to be proud. We, as a congregation, have endured wars, natural disasters, and two moves of our worship location. Through it all Bethel continues to serve the White Rock community and beyond as a viable worshipping congregation celebrating a history that has shaped us for the future.
As a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Bethel is faithful to the call of our Lord Jesus Christ to preach the Gospel and celebrate the Sacraments here where God has planted us. Our arms are open in welcome to all as we strive to be faithful in reaching out to the broken, the disenfranchised, and the ostracized out of our own brokenness with the love and grace of God sharing the gift of Jesus Christ.
If you are new to the area or are in search of a church home, we encourage you to come and worship with us. We are certain you will find Bethel a warm and welcoming place as well as a safe environment in which to seek God’s face and truth.
“Come, and see!!” (John 1:46)
