Who We Are

subH_AboutUs_0009_brick-wall.jpg

We are teachers and students, leaders and learners, artists and musicians, mountain climbers and trailblazers, prayer warriors and shuttle drivers. We are a diverse group of individuals and families called together to worship and fellowship in community, whose primary aims are to give expression to the hope found in Christ and to share that hope with the world.

Members

Bethany Community Church is supported by hundreds of members—individuals who have attended Bethany for a while, who call Bethany their home church, and who have committed publicly to Bethany's Membership Covenant. They support the church body in countless ways through service, leadership, and prayer. We emphasize membership because real community is the fruit of commitment, service, and accountability.

Volunteers

Hundreds upon hundreds of invaluable volunteers work behind-the-scenes at each Bethany location. We could not function as a church body without them.
