Welcome to Bethany! So glad you are here. We're excited to connect with you via our web page and encourage you to check out our Facebook page for the most up-to-date information (click the link at the bottom of the this page).

At Bethany, we're all about Loving God through Loving Others. The essence of God is love as demonstrated by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. If you're interested in connecting to him through us, consider attending one of our services or give us a call, shoot us an email or text. All are welcome at Bethany!

I've been a parish pastor for 37 years and served 24 years as a chaplain in the United States Navy (5 years on active duty).

I've been married to my best friend, Carolyn, for 42 years and have 4 children and 12 grandchildren. Life is good!

Check us out! If it works for you, awesome... if not, perhaps we can help you find what you are looking for!

God bless,

Pastor Steve
