Worship is at the heart of what we are called to do at Bethlehem. The Westminster Shorter Catechism says that the cheif end of man is to "glorify God and enjoy Him forever." Worship is 24/7, it involves all that we do (1 Cor. 10:31). Worship involves the head (our thoughts and beliefs), it involves the heart (our values and feelings), and it involves the hands (our actions). We seek to incorporate the whole person in the act of worship. While worship is ongoing, we do have special times when the body joins together for corporate worship and praise: Sunday morning, Sunday evening, and Wednesday night.

Annual Services
We have several special annual services. Three days before Easter we have a Maundy Thursday service to honor the Last Supper of our Lord. Early on Easter morning we have a sunrise service to celebrate our Lord's resurrection.

Each spring we set aside a Sunday to honor the senior citizens in our congregation. On the third Sunday in May we have Homecoming/Memorial Day, a service to celebrate the anniversary of our founding in 1832 and to honor our members who have passed away in the preceding twelve months.

We participate in a Community Thanksgiving Service on the Sunday evening before Thanksgiving. This service rotates from church to church in the Altamahaw-Ossipee community.

The first Sunday in Advent is celebrated with a "Hanging of the Greens" service sponsored by our Ladies Fellowship. On Christmas Day, the church is open from 9:00 AM to 12:00 Noon for family communion. In addition, we have four communion services each year at the beginning of each quarter. Our laymen, our ladies, and our youth each lead a special worship service annually.
