May 17, Godspeed Sunday and Armed Forces Sunday
It is our privilege to honor the men and women of our Armed Forces, and to acknowledge those members of Bethany, at home and abroad, who have gifted us with their service. The congregation is invited to a special Fellowship Hour on Sunday, May 17, to say farewell and Godspeed to a number of families moving out of our area. All active, reserve, and retired members of the armed services are asked to wear their uniforms to the worship services on May 17.

SAVE the DATE - PLAN TO VOTE on Congregation Renewal
The next step in our Congregational Renewal process is for the congregation to decide whether or not to go forward with the second step of Congregational Renewal, a two-year commitment. On that Sunday the congregation will be asked to vote yea or nay to continuing the Renewal process.
In an effort to get everyone's questions answered and to consider our decision, the PPC is hosting weekly Listening Sessions in the Library during the Sunday School Hour, when everyone can ask questions about and prayerfully consider the path forward in Bethany's Renewal. Watch for updates on the renewal process in bulletins, the Beacon, and this website.
