Bethlehem exists to serve its immediate local community. Throughout the year the Bethlehem facility is utilized for meetings by local groups such as garden clubs, al-anon groups, and similar organizations. The Bethlehem Community Center is available for a modest rental fee as a site for receptions and celebrations. The facilities have also been used for clothing give-aways, food drives, and meal preparation for third world countries.

Bethlehem members are active in community affairs and organizations. All of these endeavors present opportunity to share the Gospel message of salvation in Jesus Christ.

As one service to the community, Bethlehem operates Comforts of Home, a ministry to serve families needing household goods.
