PROFILE Bethany is a church family for the young and old. Dress is anywhere from shorts and t-shirts to jeans and even business casual. Our people are friendly, warm and welcoming. Stop by the welcome center when you arrive and a friendly face will answer any questions or help you with directions.
CLASSES Sunday morning begins at 9:00am with classes for children, youth and adults. The focus is God's word and its application to all areas of life. At 10:30am we offer classes for children kindergarten through 4th grade. Nursery care is available both hours.
MAIN SERVICE At 10:30am youth and adults gather in the Fellowship Hall for our Sunday morning service. Prior to the service, entrance is availble through the main doors. Once it begins worshipers are invited to enter or exit through a designated door to the right. The service lasts a total of around 75 minutes.
MUSIC The music we sing at Bethany is a blend of old and new. We love gospel rich choruses of our day as well as hymns that the people of God have been singing for centuries. While everyone brings their own style preferences with them, our main concern is that the music we sing be God centered, Christ exalting, and consistent with the teaching of sacred Scripture.
BODY OF THE SERVICE At 10:30am a pastor or member of the congregation will give a brief welcome and mention any special announcements. Our service begins with prayer and the reading of God's word. After that we sing several worship songs, spend time praying for the expansion of Christ's kingdom, and hear the word of God preached. The service closes with a final song and benediction.
SERMONS Preaching at Bethany is typically expositional. Our aim is to examine a passage of Scripture and communicate the meaning that was originally intended while always keeping in mind the Bible's primary revelation of God's work to save sinners through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Most sermons last around 35 to 40 minutes.
