BETHANY PROGRAMS
As of today, all our programming at the Bethany Church building is to be considered postponed. Any exceptions will be listed below. While we are postponing church events, we encourage you to continue to reach out to family and friends to care for and support one another, while staying safe and healthy. If you have any questions, please contact your ministry leaders. Please note, a BSMA email will be sent out to individuals in the next couple of days.

Programs still running this list will continue to be updated here:

  • Home Church – Please contact your group leader

ONLINE GIVING
Although we are not gathering in-person for church, we still have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others by giving our gifts through our giving page.

FINAL THOUGHTS
The uncertainty of this outbreak is creating anxiety in our workplaces, schools, and day-to-day activities. Yet, we remain certain of God’s steadfast presence in and careful attention to all that is happening. Please join us in praying for those who are affected by this illness, as well as their caregivers and those who are working around the clock to minimize the impact of this virus.

In Psalm 46, we are reminded that God is our refuge and strength, and our ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, let us not fear, but with confidence use this opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus through our prayers and our care for others.

In Christ,

Bethany Community Church
