Welcome to Bethany Lutheran Church!

The church council has made the decision to suspend worship services and all gatherings at Bethany until further notice. This decision is based on directives of civil and spiritual leaders in regard to the spread of the COVID-19 Virus. 

As we practice "social distancing" by not gathering in person please be assured we remain a church family of God's beloved, living our mission statement: Love God. Love People.

In place of our physical worship we will worship together in a new way.  Worship services for each Sunday as well as for our Wednesay Lent Journey are available here on our website under the "Publications" button.  Please, worship with other members of Bethany in this way as well as reaching out and sharing this opportunity with others. 

Although we are not experiencing our church life in a way we are used to, please remember that our church depends on your financial support Your donations may be sent by mail to 903 25 Road, Axtell, NE 68924 or you may use the new ONLINE GIVING opportunity found here on our website.  There is a tutorial video to explain how this works under the publication button or you may simply click on the ONLINE GIVING button and follow the directions found there. 

However, you choose to continue your giving to Bethany we thank you for remaining a vital part of the ministry we are called to: Love God. Love People!

New ways to do ministry are being worked on. Please, watch our facebook page and the announcements here for new opportunties to be God's church during this challenging time. 

Pastor Marcia is available via her phone at 308.380.4256 for any needs, concerns or just to visit.  Please, do not hestitate to reach out or share concerns or needs of others. 

Thank you for your prayers and for your patience as we navigate these uncharted waters. One thing we know in these uncertain times is that we are not alone in this journey, Christ is with us and in us! 


God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

                                           Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth should change,

                                           though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea….

                                                            “Be still and know that I am God!”

                                                                                                       Psalm 46: 1-2, 10
