We are located at 120 E. 5th, just across from the Courthouse in Sedalia Missouri.
Our service begins at 10:30 am and we have special services for kids of nursery age up to 12 years old.
One of the last things I wanted to do was ‘start a church’ especially in my home town. On top of this we knew too much about both big and small ministries and we were content to be a missionary and mobilize people who wanted to GO with God. It took some time, but God confirmed our direction to begin a new church in Sedalia. In the process we connected with the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel (see video below) and began planting Bethel Family Church. It has been an excellent journey with God!
We began having bibles studies in our home, with up to 15 people, and began doing various things to help people in the community. Eventually we decided to find a building. We started with a team of four and our first service was just seven people. Needless to say it was not the best way to start a church but God has been faithful through it all!
We believe Church is not about sitting and watching but it is about using the gifts, talents, and abilities God has given each person to strengthen, encourage, and build others up. You will see people from various ethnic, cultural, and economic backgrounds. You will see people of senior adults, youth, and middle aged people serving in all areas of the church. In all there is a place for you, and there are many places to connect.
We hear people say, "Bethel Family Church is a real come as your are type of church." Some connect to BFC after being "hurt" some place else and God is able to restore them with us. Some are just beginning their walk with God. Still others have been around church for a while and are eager to grow, learn, and help others.
So, no matter if you are just not starting to walk with God, coming back to a community of faith, or re-investigating previous held beliefs, you can come as you are and can connect with people on a similar journey.
We know that in times of worship our hearts are open to God and he is faithful to direct, confirm, and speak to our hearts. Our worship service is designed so that each person is free to engage God in worship. Our worship team is not going to entertain you, but encourage you to express your heart toward God.
