Dear members and friends of Bethany,

In his undeserved grace, the Savior has been blessing Bethany with a growing ministry-- growing to the point where it's putting a strain on our existing facilities. Almost three years ago cottage meetings were held during which members were asked to identify and rank what they saw as future needs to carry out our ministry.

A Building Committee was formed, designs made and costs obtained. Now it seems that God and his all-powerful Spirit are allowing us to move forward. He has done great things for us in the past and we look for him to guide us in the future.

To answer peoples' questions and to explain the plans that have been formlated; and to share what steps lie ahead if our Savior enables our congregation to Move Forward in Faith...
  • A special tract entitled "Foward in Faith - Questions and Answers" has been mailed to the congregation's families. We're happy to share this publication with members, friends and interested persons. Please inquire!
  • Cottage Meetings are scheduled for the month February. Members and friends of Bethany are urged to attend. You may use the sign-up sheets in the Fellowship Hall, or you may call Lori in our church office.
