God calls us into the church to accept the cost and joy of discipleship and to be God’s servants in the service of the whole human family. At Bethany Church, we reach out in service to those both near and far. We are a church that has a strong commitment to missions, both through our monetary gifts and personal service.
The Bible is the story of God’s love for us, expressed in steadfast love and faithfulness and abundant blessing.
We come together so that we can better serve God and others. We need each other’s gifts so that we can truly be “Christ’s body” and serve on his behalf in the world. We also need to nurture each other as servants, to discern each other’s gifts, invite each other to share them, trust each other as we seek to share, support, bear with, and forgive each other as we do. We need each other to challenge and inspire one another to give.
Bethany Church offers a host of opportunities to serve. We need your gifts. Just as important, if what Jesus has taught and shown us is right, you need to share them. There are so many ways to get started, from greeting, ushering, lay reading, singing or playing in a choir, or sharing with a class on Sunday morning, to working with the Property Committee to maintain our facilities, to serving meals at Bethany Kitchen, or welcoming guests from Family Promise. The list goes on and on. Whatever way you might want to serve, you can trust that you’ll be welcomed, encouraged, and supported. You can trust, too, that you’ll meet Jesus, and become a real part of his body, doing his work in the world.
