Welcome to Bethany Lutheran Church!

The congregational council of Bethany has voted to resume in-person worship utilizing an outdoor worship approach. We will gather north of the church building on Sundays at 9am for worship. Please know that we believe this is the best and safest option for our congregation at this time. Please see the letter from the Bethany Church Council under the "Publications" tab for more information.

The safety and health of all members is of the upmost importance as we proceed. Thank you for your patience, your flexibility and your commitment to Bethany's missions to Love God. Love People. As we continue during the COVID-19 pandemic, our goal is to show our love for one another by being cautious and as safe as possible.

In our worship, in your continued financial giving, and in ways we are meeting virtually, we continue to be God’s church and living out our mission statement to Love God. Love People. As your elected leaders, we invite your comments and suggestions, encouragement and support during this challenging time.

We also thank you for the ways you have supported and prayed for each other.

In Christ’s service,

Bethany Church Council


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
