Our Services

What are services like?
Our services follow the traditional Western liturgy as found in the hymnal "Lutheran Service Book," Divine Service, Setting 3. They are characterized by a sublime reverence for the Presence of almighty God and focus on His grace, mercy, and forgiveness distributed to us through His holy Word and Sacraments.

What is the community like?
Bethany is a congregation of people of all ages whose members show Christian hospitality to everyone. We are sinners who are forgiven by God through faith in Christ.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Come to Bethany and hear the Biblical truth taught and expressed in the tradition of Christians throughout time and space. The Good News of God's forgiving love in Jesus Christ is the very means He uses to give saving faith to those whom He chooses.
