Joyfully we profess our faith through God's unconditional love.
Here and now God dwells in all our lives,
bears our sins on the cross,
and forgives us all.
 Bethany Evangelical Lutheran Church has returned to indoor worship on Sundays at 9 a.m.
If you plan to worship indoors, please observe the following protocols adopted by your congregational council to help ensure the health and safety of those who are gathering together:
- Masks are required to enter the building and make your way to your seat. (Masks are available at the entrance if needed.)
- After you are seated, masks must be worn when you are singing, speaking, or moving away from your seat. Masks may be removed at all other times.
- Maintain social distancing of six feet away at all times, unless you are with people who live in your household. People who live in the same household are invited to sit beside each other. The Great Room will be set up to accommodate spaced seating.
- Use the door next to the kitchen to enter the Great Room. With the exception of the restroom near that entrance, the offices, classrooms, kitchen, and other spaces in our facility are closed. All other doors will be locked to the outside.
- Pick up your bulletin and communion kit as you enter the Great Room, where an offering plate will also be placed. Pastor Dave will record the names of all who enter.
- If you are not feeling well or have a fever, please stay at home as a precaution, a practice that is widely observed in our community.
Your cooperation is sincerely appreciated.
The service is also live streamed on Facebook:
After the Sunday worship hour, the service may be viewed anytime on Facebook.
