A MESSAGE FROM OUR PASTOR


The Rev. Tony Robinson, a United Church of Christ pastor, writes that “worship is less a noun than a verb. It is not something we go to and watch or that happens at a particular hour each week. It is something we do, an event in which we take part.” 


That is an apt description of worship at Bethany Church. Worship is something we do! Each Sunday we gather, all ages together, to honor and give thanks to God, to pray and to sing, to observe the sacraments, to support one another, to learn and to grow in faith, to find new ways to deepen our discipleship in Christ and our service to God’s world.  Worship is enriched by the participation of so many! 


Bethany Church is an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ, committed to extravagant welcome.  We are a people of diverse theological and denominational backgrounds, bringing a variety of understandings and experiences of faith. Within that diversity we find unity in our care for each other and our neighbors near and far, in reaching out in mission and in service. Together we make visible the face of God.


Together we celebrate; together we console; together we are ministers to one another; together we work to respond to the cares of the wider community and world; together we are the church.  


So come join us!  At Bethany, there is always room for one more…or two…or three…!


Whoever you are, wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!  


Rev. Kimberly S. McKerley
