This year we will again be posting a recorded service for Thanksgiving worship. This 30-minute video will include hymns, prayers and a short homily based on Philippians 4:12-13. 
Look for the service to be posted on November 20, on our live stream page. The reason for a virtual service is to help our members and friends share the Thanksgiving message from our church. You can do this by inviting your family to watch the service with you and by sharing it on social media through Facebook, X and YouTube.

Advent is a busy time at Bethany Lutheran! During Advent, Bethany Lutheran Church offers Wednesday night services at 7:30 p.m. using the Holden Evening Prayer. This is in addition to our regular 10:00 a.m. Sunday services. We also offer some other special services during the month of December including our Preschool Christmas Prgram and special Christmas event; our Family Christmas Eve service featuring our children's choirs, and our very special Christmas Eve Candlelight Service, which includes a professional brass quartet, a flute, the organ, and multiple choirs.
