Out & About is a ministry of Bethel Lutheran Church crafted to provide fellowship activities for Bethel members and friends. The interval of events is monthly and we vary the offerings to be inclusive of different age groups and physical abilities. Most are open to all ages, but occasionally we’ll program adult-only events. On all of our outings, a new attendee gets to ride the bus for free. Please invite lots—this is a great way for folks to check out this community called Bethel.
