The Longest Night Service

We offer the Longest Night Service to create a space for those struggling with loss and sadness during this season and provide an opportunity to connect with the birth of Christ in a more contemplative and perhaps comforting way. Please join us for a time of music, a brief message, and an opportunity to name our sadness before the God of all comfort.

Servant Leaders Training

January 10 | 9am–11am | Sanctuary

All of us lead and have been used by God to change someone's life--often without even knowing it. Bethany's Servant Leaders Training is for those currently serving on any team: in the classroom, at the door, or on the bus. This two-hour seminar is designed to invest in you as a leader at Bethany; to engage your curiosity, enrich your life, and expand your community.
