Saturday contemporary services are being held the last Saturday of every month at 5:30. We are looking for people who would be willing to run the powerpoint during the service. If you'd like to help, please contact the church office or Pastor Paul. Hope to see you there.
Our mission is: "Reaching out in Worship, Fellowship, Learning and Love - We are God's people."
Worship services are Sundays at 9:00am. Sunday School is at 10:30 during the school year. We offer Holy Communion every Sunday. We provide childcare during worship services.
We are a church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. (www.elca.org)

We have returned to worship in the sanctuary. We are singing without masks if you are fully vaccinated. There will be a non-singing section where you will not have people near you who are singing. We are using a self-contained communion cup and wafer. You can also bring in your own wine/juice and bread.
Our parking lot service continues as it has been. Please bring bread and juice, as well as your hymnal, with you. We are also sharing a modified version of the peace. Honk your horns and wave at your neighbors.
You may watch the service on Bethany's Facebook page.
The Hope service is streamed at 10:55 a.m. in the sanctuary. We will follow all guidelines including no singing, masks, social distancing, and no interaction. "Hope" to see you there!
