Welcome to Bethany Lutheran Church of Axtell, Nebraska! We encourage you to join us for Sunday worship and other activities as listed on the website calendar.

Bethany has a mission statement: Love God. Love People.  Everything we do and all we are should always point to this outcome of Love God. Love People. Children singing at worship? Yep. Collecting food for local food pantries? Yep. Sharing prayer shawls for those in need? That too. Serving at a funeral lunch? Loving people. Attending worship and Sunday school? Loving God. Picking up refuse in Axtell for God's Work. Our Hands. Sunday? Caring for the world which God has entrusted to his people. Just showing the light of Jesus in our lives embodies this statement. Come, let us show Love God. Love People. to the world.
