An Exciting Time to be a Part of Bethel!

We are a bible based, Christ-centered, multi-generational church. We have a heart for the poor that is evidenced in our outreach to our local community and the greater world. Our Preschool is a vital part of our ministry as we seek to nurture and educate toddlers who are one or two years away from kindergarten. Bethel is also a Stephen Ministry congregation which means we provide training for lay people to walk with folks who are going through a tough time in life. We are excited to offer children’s and youth ministry, young adults, men’s and women’s groups and retreats; as well as senior ministry and opportunities.



Sundays at 9:15 AM
Saturdays at 5:30 PM


“Our mission is to proclaim the love and grace shown through the Word of God, by inviting ALL to embrace God’s message of salvation in order to be committed followers of Christ who boldly carry their faith into the community and the world.”


Bethel, founded in 1982, is a Lutheran congregation in northeast Colorado Springs. We are associated with Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC).
