Serving our Church and our Community:

Everyone has God given talents and treasures. God wants to fill us with His Spirit so we will use them for His glory. Think about your special talents and abilities and the ways you could use them for God’s work in the world. Below is a list of the different opportunities at Bethany. We encourage you to prayerfully consider becoming part of a team.

Church Council– Bethany’s Church Council is responsible for the establishment of policy and the development of strategic plans for Bethany Lutheran Ministries, which includes the Church, Preschool and School.

“There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord.
There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men.
Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good."
1 Corinthians 12:4-7
