I'm New

What is it like?

We are a connected, close-knit community that comes together regularly to worship and praise God and to be of service to others. If you’re visiting or new, you’ll experience welcomes, introductions, and invitations from numerous people right from the start. You can become as involved as you wish as quickly as you wish (or not). Our weekly bulletin provides the order of service and the page numbers of songs so it will be easy to follow along during worship. Our communion table is open to all and you are invited to share that spiritual meal with us.

What about my kids?

Children of all ages are welcome to come to church - we even have a fun children's area we call The Prayground, with a large rug and quiet activities for children who might want to move around a bit. Children and youth formation classes are held during the school year at 11:30 am and 4 pm. Ask to meet our Children’s Minister, Alyssa Sali, and our Youth Minister, Beth Cannon, and talk more with them about what’s available for your children.

Where do I park?

There is an upper parking lot for visitors and those with mobility issues. If you are able bodied, we invite you to park in the lower lot and take a stroll over one of the bridges to the church and enjoy the grounds.

What do I wear?

You will see a wide range of dress at St. Bede’s from jeans to suits and everything in-between at each of our services. Wear what feels like church clothes for you.  We are interested in you, not what you’re wearing.

How can I get connected?

It’s very easy. There are a wealth of opportunities for involvement at St. Bede’s and as we start getting to know you we’ll introduce you to the leaders of those ministries. These range from spiritual, to service to social. If you have a special interest let us know so you can connect you with leaders of those ministries.  Newcomers dinners are offered periodically so you have an opportunity to get to know a group of seasoned parishioners in a purely social setting. If you would like to join St. Bede's, start by filling out this membership form. There are so many ways to get involved and getting involved provides a way to nourish yourself and to get to know others.
