Worship -- through weekly services\nEducation - through Sunday school, "Something More", Middle School after school programs and others\nFellowship - regular chances to get together and nurture each other and the community through community wide events such as Abendmusik\nCharity - tithing our income to other worthy charities locally and abroad

Our 175 year presence in this community speaks to our organizations continuing capability to help our community. From a low of 39 members after the Civil War to a peak of over 400 in the 1980's our membership has had its ups and downs. But our resolve is steadfast, and with God's help we will continue to thrive in the community for many years to come.

Since 1947, the start of our current church register, we have served over 1650 members, with a current active membership of 122. In addition, our support of the community is well recognized as seen by donations and bequests from non-members. 2019 was a celebration year for us recognizing 175 years in the community. We had over a dozen individual events with most focused on the community. This included "the Bedford Awakening: a Community Renewal Event" which we led and was supported by 18 other local churches. This event has seeded other ecumenical follow-ons, such as walking prayers around Bedford, and a follow-on the the Awakening scheduled for this April.\n\nOur pastor has focused his sermons this year on "All the stories of the Bible" an adult look at stories we all learned in Sunday school starting with Creation.
