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.
9 am Contemporary Worship
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.
11 am Traditional Worship
Our third service is held in the sanctuary and features liturgy, preaching, and music from our organ and the chancel choir.
This Week’s Message
First Sunday of Advent
12-10-2017 What Is Your Christmas Card Message? (Pastor Greg)
Preparing for Worship
What messages do you receive from friends and family at Christmas time? If you were to write a Christmas message right now, what would you share about your life in this past year? What pains and sorrows would you share? What joys?
Our Bible Focus Today
The beginning of the good news about Jesus Christ, God’s Son, happened just as it was written about in the prophecy of Isaiah: Look, I am sending my messenger before you. He will prepare your way, a voice shouting in the wilderness: “Prepare the way for the Lord; make his paths straight.” (Mark 1:1-3)
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.
