Strong Roots Bring Continual Growth

On June 8th, 1899, a group of primarily Norwegian immigrants met to discuss forming a congregation in South Minneapolis. Bethel was formally organized the next week on June 14th. We are gathering on the 125th anniversary of that first meeting to celebrate the past, present, and especially the future of Bethel. The roots that were put down in 1899 have continued to grow and strengthen, leaving us with a strong foundation and support for our further growth. Please join us as we celebrate this milestone!
