SUNDAY Morning, Afternoon & Evening: 

Making "Community Connections" through Prayer:  We are taking a break due to COVID-19.  This group normally meets 7:30-7:55AM every Sunday in the Conference Room - this is temporarily on break until further notice. You are invited to drop in any Sunday and pray silently or from a prayer guide. Consider coming next will be so welcomed! God is powerful and mighty. He asks that we come to Him with our requests. FYI all who worship and all who serve in worship service are prayed for as well.  - Pre-service Prayer Group


Lessons of the Day:  We are taking a break due to COVID-19.  Normally every Sunday morning join John Schinnerer at 9:30AM in the Library. This study highlights the readings/lesson of the day.  


GriefShare Update:   We will be starting up another session of our GriefShare support group on Sunday, October 25 in the Parish Lounge from 11:00AM – 12:30PM. Please be reminded that GriefShare is a 13 week DVD/discussion based class for those who are experiencing the grief of losing a loved one, or some other major loss in one’s life. Should you know of any individuals who might benefit from a support group of this nature, please pass the word to them, or let me know as I send out postcards of invitation. Thanks in advance for keeping this ministry in your prayers! I am blessed to be able to serve this group as a leader. We will sit at tables, socially distanced, with plenty of ventilation. Please contact me with any questions you might have.—Karl Fink,

Men’s Bible Study Fellowship: 

  • Men's BSF has suspended meeting in person for the time being; the meantime, the study is posted online and we will have Facetime opportunities. 
  • For the past four years, Bethany has hosted an international Bible Study, called Bible Study Fellowship (BSF).  It starts in September every year and goes to May.  This year we are studying Acts.  You can learn more at the BSF website:   For me, this was a life changing study; in fact, the BSF bible study impacted my Christian walk more than other Christian endeavor.
