Join us each Sunday for worship at Bethany at any of our three services (see schedule below). We invite all to join us in celebrating God’s love for all people and encourage you to journey in faith with the Bethany family.
Regular Worship Schedule
8 am Traditional Worship
This service is held in the chapel and is traditional but informal. The service is slightly shorter than our other services.

This upbeat service is led by the pastor and members in the sanctuary. Children leave for Sunday School after Children’s Time. Worship includes sermons, prayers, and music from our praise band.

This Week’s Message
Series: Are You Barely Surviving, or Fruitfully Thriving?
06-25-2017 How Do You Define Love? How Do You Live It? (Pastor Greg)
Today’s Focus: The Fruit of the Spirit is….LOVE
Preparing for Worship
Are there people whom you find especially difficult to love? Why? How do you seek the best for people even when you know they won’t appreciate it? How can you be more loving?
Our Bible Focus Today
By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (Galatians 5:22-23a)
Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor. (Romans 12:9-10)
Previous week’s sermons can be found here.
Options for Families
In the narthex, just outside the sanctuary is a small “wiggle” area where parents can listen to and see the service with babies and small children, and where “Wiggle Bags” are available for the kids. We also offer nursery care for all services.
At Bethany we normally serve communion on the first Sunday of each month. Our communion is an “open table,” meaning everyone is welcome. You do not have to be a member of Bethany to participate in communion. Also, so that all may participate, we serve gluten free bread and grape juice.
Care Bus Ministry
One of Bethany’s primary goals is to provide a Caring Ministry to members of the church family. To help meet this goal, Bethany provides a Sunday morning bus service to persons who otherwise would be unable to attend worship. More information is available from the Church Office.
