What to Expect
What are services like?
We offer a wide variety of spirit-filled worship and music styles to meet the varied needs of our congregation and community. We offer a casual Saturday evening service, 2 traditional worship services with hymns, choir and organ, 2 contemporary style worship services lead by our Messengers of Grace band, and a contemplative Taizé style service, each weekend. There are other regular worship opportunities during the week and seasonal special services throughout the year.
What is the community like?
"Bethany" means "house of a friend" and that is an apt description of who we are at Bethany - friendly, welcoming, spirit-filled, inviting, learning, growing, supporting, generous, giving, compassionate, serving beyond our walls...these are only a few words to describe this congregation! It is our desire to honor God through all our work on His behalf. To that end, we will do His work with the qualities we most value: integrity, grace, excellence, relevance, authenticity, passion, humility, faith, inclusivity, commitment, community, joy and love.
What if I'm not a Christian?
