A little about this church: Bethany is a caring community of people walking together on their spiritual journeys. We seek to provide meaning and hope to all people through worship, friendship, and using the gifts God has given us. We believe in Jesus, God’s Son, and seek to follow Him in all we do. We also trust the Bible as God’s authoritative Word to all humans, and seek to treat others the way we would want to be treated.
Everyone is welcome at Bethany Baptist Church! We offer a special welcome to our visitors this morning. May you sense God’s warmth through our church family, and may you connect with God and others in a meaningful way. If you choose, we would be grateful if you would leave a record of your visit by filling out the “Welcome” card in the pew. We’re glad you are here.
