Bethel Church of Christ
The name BETHEL means “house of God.” (Genesis 28:10-22)
MESSAGE … (Joshua 4:6) ... “What mean you of these stones”
The Bethel Church of Christ began meeting Sunday, April 3, 1976 in the Meadows building, known locally as the drugstore.
In 1990, the church bought the former Bethel schoolhouse, and began remodeling it in 1991. The congregation moved into the renovated schoolhouse in August, 1993. Sadly, the building burned less than one year later, on April 2, 1994.
The church immediately moved back into the drugstore, and met the following day on the eighteenth anniversary of the congregation, with plans to rebuild as soon as possible.
With the help of other congregations and individuals, the church built a new brick building and moved into this facility in September, 1994. The church continues to meet in that building today. The church also purchased the house and property adjacent to the church, which is available for a home for the evangelist working the church.
These faithful men have served as elders of the congregation at different times over the years: Glen Keenon, James Turner, David Harwell and Jesse Youngblood. Additionally, the following men have served as deacons: Joe Mitchell, Johnny Russell, Sterling Turner, Marty Tyler and Pete Bryant. Several preachers have served as evangelist for the church since its inception: Glenn Kennon, David Harwell, Jonathan Reeder, Mack Wheeler and Jeff Barnett. Also, other faithful men have come to Bethel to hold Gospel Meetings: Jim Sheerer, Casey Harbin, Danny Tucker, David Cox, Joe Corley, Bill Hall and Everett Conn.
Currently, in 2014 the church continues to stand for the Truth as revealed in the pages of the New Testament and insists on a “thus saith the Lord,” for all that it practices. Average attendance for Sunday morning worship is around 50. The church does not currently have elders, but is teaching and working toward that end.
