Beit Tefilla Messianic Congregation is located on Greenbriar Street in Belton, just off of Main Street. The congregation has only been in Belton for a year and a half. Membership hovers around 20-30 people, who came dressed to Thursday’s Rosh Hashana service in everything from jeans and leather vests, to dresses and headscarves.
“We’re kind of an eclectic group,” said Cindy Perry. She and her husband both attended the Rosh Hashana service Thursday morning at 10:30. Following the tradition of Jewish holidays, the congregation started its special services Wednesday evening, the official beginning of Rosh Hashana. The blasts of the shofar, the traditional ram’s horn, began Wednesday evening and were sounded again Thursday morning.
