Come Join Us and Experience the Grace of God!

For it is by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.

Ephesians 2:8

Come on in...

All are welcome in this place!!

How’s your day going?  Are you lonely and looking for friendship?  Are you hurting and hoping for prayers?  Are you seeking and yearning to be found?

Come and worship with us at Bethany Lutheran Church.  We are a joyful group of wounded, forgiven, hungry and fed people of all ages and experiences.  We love to laugh but we are also ready to bear one another’s burdens.

Are you looking for joy?

Come here and see.

And I hope your day is brighter.
