We are committed to reaching out to others with the love of Jesus who welcomed all people. We offer a place to connect with others and a place to connect with God. Come and visit us. You are welcome to join us as together we learn what it means to follow Jesus.

What to expect when you visit Bethany Lutheran:

You will enter by the south driveway. Parking lot is on the east side of the church. As you enter the church you will go straight ahead where you will be greeted by friendly greeters. The sanctuary where we worship will be to your left. The service is easy to follow as it is printed out in our bulletins. We offer Holy Communion each Sunday and you are welcome to come and receive it if you wish. If you'd rather not, that's OK too. Instructions will be given that day on how to take Holy Communion. 

Our worship services are generally about an hour long. You are more than welcome to join us for coffee and donuts in the fellowship are following worship. 

Sunday School and Adult Class is from 10:30- 11:30 and you are invited to come to that as well.

Restrooms are to the right of the entryway and in the east hallway. A nursury is provided. Please ask the ushers to show you where that is located. We are handicapped accesible.

STEPHEN MINISTRY

Bethany Lutheran Church has been preparing for over two years to start up Stephen Ministry for our congregants and community members. We now have well-trained Stephen Ministers who are prepared to provide high quality care to people during a time of pain or struggle.

Stephen Ministry is a highly confidential, nonjudgmental one-on-one listening ministry designed to bring Christ's love to those who are experiencing the storms of life we all experience from time to time.

If you or someone you know is experiencing the loss of a loved one, divorce, serious illness, hospitalization, move to long-term care, job loss, relocation, family separation due to military deployment, onset of a disability, loneliness, spiritual crisis, stresses related to a new baby, or other life trial, please know that God did not intend for us to face these troubles alone. Our compassionate Stephen Ministers are available to walk with you and support you through these challenging times.

Please contact the church (319-752-3621) and either Pastor Paul (319-752-3621) or Kim Engle (319-371-5415), our Stephen Leader, will contact you promptly to let you know more about this wonderful ministry of service.
