Our English-speaking service is without a pastor right now, so we’re working with our regional office to find our next pastor.
But as Lutherans, we believe in the priesthood of all believers – that all Christians are able to communicate Christ to others. So, we’re worshiping every Sunday, usually with guest pastors but sometimes with lay persons giving sermons or faith statements. We’ve found that God has many ways and many messengers for spreading grace, God’s unconditional love for you.
Pastor Martin Zamora
Pastor Martin Zamora is the lay pastor of the Spanish-speaking congregation that worships in the church, Iglesia Evangelica Nueva Vida En Cristo.
Angel Ramirez, our Office Coordinator, is the voice you’ll hear on the phone, and our go-to person who keeps our office humming. He has a passion for the Lord (and for the 49ers, but that’s another story). Your first introduction to him may be when you first arrive at Bethel, as he’s also our Parking Lot Attendant and unofficial greeter. No matter the role, he’ll be happy to help you with any questions you may have.
Ann Aakre is our organist, whose joy shows through in whatever she plays, whether it’s Bach, traditional Lutheran hymns, or contemporary praise music. She’s also our Confirmation instructor, teaching middle schoolers about both the Bible and the church in a way that deepens their faith.
