Christmas Services

Saturday, December 24
at 7pm

As is tradition at Bethany, the children will perform a program as the message of this service.  This year the kids will remind us that "Jesus is the Reason for the Season."

"The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it." John 1:5

Sunday, December 25
NO Sunday School
Worship at 11am

Christmas Day falls on a Sunday this year.  We will have a hymn-sing service with Holy Communion.  So come as you are and bring the whole family out to sing some Christmas music at this festival celebration of the Nativity of our Lord.

But wait...there's more!

There are TWO Sundays in the Christmas season this year.  Since the Twelve Days of Christmas start on Christmas day (no matter what stores try to tell you) and end on Epiphany, January 6...
that means January 1 is also a Christmas Sunday
- a chance to extend our Christmas celebrations and carol-singing!  Even though it's New Years' Day, you don't want to miss it!

One more thing...
Just a reminder of the weather we were experiencing last year this time

Merry Christmas to all!

Pastor Laura

On December 10 at 2pm at Bethany, Laura Weant was ordained by Bishop Leonard Bolick to the Ministry of Word and Sacrament, and was installed as Pastor at Bethany Lutheran Church.

It was a beautiful service with a beautiful reception full of wonderful food and decorations, put on by the members of Bethany.

God is good!
