Ephesians 2:8


There's Room At the Table!

Welcome to Bethany’s website!  Although I am new to the area, I already know that Bethany is a family of mission-minded people who love Jesus and who love the community of Spencer.

I invite you to take a few moments to enjoy the photos and information on this site.  Then please come to any of our events or to one of our two Bible- and family-centered worship services each Sunday at 8:30 or 11:00.  

Depending on the season, many other worship services are posted so that we can sing together, pray together, share the Holy meal together, and praise God.

My most favorite activity is praising God, and my second most favorite is visiting with people and hearing your stories.  Let’s find a time to sit and get to know each other.

See you in worship!
