Worship at Bethany

 

At Bethany Lutheran Church, worship is a celebration of what God has done for us in His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior—His initiative in our life, His saving events throughout history. Worship is a remembrance, a reenactment-if-you-will, of God's redemptive acts for all people throughout history; it is also a joyful reception through faith, by God's people now, who live to proclaim His redeeming grace to all the world. The Lutheran understanding of "Gottesdienst" or "God's service to us" and "our service to God" are foundational to all that we do in worship. God first comes to us, and we respond in confession, joyful praise, prayer and humble faith.

SUNDAY MORNING RESOURCE LINKS:

 

Holy Communion: 

Those who believe the following statement to be true are most welcome to receive this sacrament: The Lord's Supper is celebrated at Bethany in the joyful confession that our Lord gives us His very Body and Blood for the forgiveness of sins in this sacrament. God intends this gift for His children who recognize their sin, trust in Christ as their Savior, desire to live for Him alone and join in this joyful confession.

Our Communion Pattern at Bethany for the 8:00AM service is the 1st and 3rd Sundays.  For the 9:30AM service, it is the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Sundays (not on a 5th Sunday).

*Contact the church office, (562) 421-4711,  if you are in need of our ministry staff to bring communion to your home.  

 

Nursery Care on Sunday Mornings:

We love kids here at Bethany! We offer nursery care during both our 8:00 and 9:30AM services. Infants through preschool kids love connecting with friends & enjoy the playing with the toys while listening to the service playing. We have a fantastic team that are highly qualified caretakers. Drop off starts at 7:50AM for the 8:00AM service and at 9:20AM for the 9:30AM service. Please make your way across Friendship Square (the courtyard outside) to get your child signed in and situated.
