Who We Are

I'm New


Whether you are just exploring your faith or have a vibrant relationship with Christ, we invite you to be part of our faith community. Bethany has a rich mix of both a deeply rooted traditional worship and contemporary praise worship. We welcome all people, regardless of where you are on your faith journey. Bethany is a community where we grow in faith, a safe place to explore coming back to a faith community, or simply to learn what faith is all about. We’re glad you’re here!
