Bethel is committed to building real and lasting relationships among its members and with our neighbors in South Minneapolis. We are a warm and friendly church, truly welcoming of anyone we meet.
We come from all sorts of backgrounds and value being intergenerational. We are moms and dads, toddlers, tweens, single, married, divorced, widowed, GLBTQIA+, retired, in college and grandparents. We have mental health issues, physical disabilities, unique talents and gifts, quirks and foibles, lots of fun with each other and God's love to share.
To me Bethel is a congregation where I know everyone can be heard and loved for who they are and the social justice they believe in. We have a common heart opened toward loving our neighbors, and common hands to turn our love into action.
This is my family. We are Irish, Swedish, Norwegian, French, American Indian, Korean, Spanish, African American, Hmong. We are all God's children and I love them with all my heart.
Bethel is my family too!
