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


We're glad you're here.

Maybe you’re brand new to the Christian faith and have never set foot in a church. Maybe you’re new to the area and looking for a church home after leaving behind a beloved community of faith. Perhaps you want to think about life’s most important questions: Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? Maybe you’re looking for ways to give back. Or maybe you’re not entirely sure why you’re here at all.

Whatever has brought you to Bethany Lutheran Church, please know: we are delighted that you’ve found us. We’re pretty sure that—no matter what has drawn you to this place—you’ll find others who are here for similar reasons. We’re also confident that your presence here—your questions, your experiences, your skills and your passions—will add something important to our journey together.

This is Christ’s Church. We are a part of the Body of Christ. We foster unity among the children of God for the sake of the world and our community. Bethany Lutheran Church is a member of the The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. To find out more about the ELCA, please visit or visit us at Bethany Lutheran Church!

God Bless You.
