Join us for
 the beginning of Lent

Ash Wednesday Holy Communion
with Imposition of Ashes Service
Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 7pm
This service sets the tone for the season of Lent, as we receive the ashes from Palm Sunday's palm branches in the form of a cross on our foreheads, reminding us of our mortality, our fickleness, and our need for the Savior.

For more about the ashes, see this blog post.

And don't forget, the day before, 
Shrove Tuesday pancake supper
Tuesday, Feb. 25
5:30-7 pm
with traditional pancakes 
& buckwheat pancakes with sausage gravy!
If you didn't know...Bethany has a unique pancake tradition.  In addition to traditional pancakes, Bethany also serves (savory) buckwheat pancakes with sausage gravy - a tradition from the time when the Winebarger family used to bring fresh-milled buckwheat flour from their mill.

It's Advent!

It's Advent!

What is Advent?
"Advent" means "Coming"
It's the time we celebrate Christ coming in "History, Mystery, and Majesty"
We celebrate Christ coming to us in history as a baby, the Word of God taking on human flesh.
We celebrate the ways in which Christ comes to us NOW in mystery.
We long for the day Christ comes to us again in majesty.

We light a new candle on the Advent wreath each week.  And that light is our tiny little protest of hope against the darkness.  That light is a witness that the busy hustle does not run our lives.  It is a sign of our vigil.  It is a sign of our waiting.  O Come, O Come, Emmanuel!

Join us for worship in Advent, every Sunday at 11:00am
Make an Advent wreath for your home and observe daily Advent devotions with your family
If you'd like suggestions for daily Advent devotions, email
