about our weekend services

At First Presbyterian Church of Bethlehem our goal is to draw people into a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ and to equip them to Know God, Love People, and Serve the World. We understand that each person has a very personal relationship with God and connects with God in different ways.  We seek to serve these differing worship voices by offering distinct worship experiences all with the same message. Whether you prefer traditional or contemporary, you will find a place at one of FPC Bethlehem’s four weekend services to encounter God in a way that is comfortable and familiar, passionate and reverent.


Music is at the heart of the worship experience that, together with the Word, provides a genuine opportunity to encounter the holy. At every service, you will see that FPC Bethlehem is a strong local church with deep roots in liturgy and authentic worship.


SUNDAYS AT 8:45 A.M. | Chapel
You are invited to attend our beautiful and meaningful weekly communion service in the Chapel, Sundays from 8:45 to 9:15 a.m. This service features hymns, prayer, a short sermon, and communion.
