Scott is a graduate of Michigan State University, Northern Seminary, and Luther Rice University.

Dr. Isaac Park is the Korean Pastor and leads the Korean worship and fellowship “The Message” that meets at 1:00 pm. on Sundays in the Sanctuary. He has been in ministry over 20 years. Worship together is a rich and diverse experience that encompasses traditional and contemporary music styles. Pastor Scott Arnold preaches from the Bible and draws application to life using powerpoint and easy to follow outlines. Pastor Scott is a graduate of Northern Seminary in Chicago and Luther Rice Seminary in Atlanta, GA. He is also trained in Urban Planning and Urban Ministry. His favorite passage is from II Corinthians 5 where believers are called to be “ambassadors” of the gospel of reconciliation in Christ. Ambassadors are called to maintain their values while reaching out to establish peace and redemptive relationships.CONNECTIONS:Our ministries are now expanding into our renovated fellowship building which we call “Connections”. (153 Concord Road).After worship, we meet there for Hospitality time, Round Table discussions around the scripture and sermon notes from worship and for mutual support and growth. Bedford’s “Kamate Fitness” classes are taking place in the upper level of “Connections” many mornings and evenings. These fitness classes are part of the Town of Bedford’s programming. Currently, the church is open to consider other “non-profit” groups for rental use of the facility and for various meetings and get togethers.CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES OVERVIEW: We all stay together in worship: The Children’s messages during worship are followed by a time for the children to work at crafts/legos on tables in the back of the sanctuary. Toddlers and infants are watched as needed in the nursery by ready staff and volunteers. Linda Blades (who is a seasoned Montessori children’s educator) is our children’s and youth minister. We have also Frances Paxton to help organize and develop the focus of ministry for teens. She will also be developing an English Language outreach for tutoring and classes. SPECIAL EVENTS for children are planned frequently and VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL in August is a favorite time.GROWING TOGETHER (Sunday School) is a time for adults/teens to have Roundtable discussions at the Connections building lower level from 11:10am to 12:15pm. Growing Together for the Children takes place in the main building involving the “Godly Play” curriculum. Children’s classes are downstairs following worship from 11:10 am till 12:15 pm. Students also have time to sing prior to their lesson. During the year we have special events and Vacation Bible School in the Summer.
