What to Expect

Worship Services are a vital aspect of our life with Jesus at Bethany. While not the "main show" in the life of a Christian, the worship liturgy (work of the people)  informs the daily liturgy -- our service for Christ’s Kingdom the rest of the week. We gather for corporate worship every Sunday, during the school year at 8:00 & 10:30 AM and offer an Education Hour for all ages at 9:15 AM (September through May). During the summer months, we continue to gather on Sunday at 10:30 AM and add a mid-week service on Wednesdays at 7:00 PM.

By following the church calendar, we also participate in the richness of special services such as Advent, Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Lent, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter, etc.

The liturgy of the divine service attempts to tell the story of who God is and what he’s done each and every week. Through singing, calls to worship, the reading of scripture, spoken confession/absolution, a space for personal reflection, various spiritual practices and meditations, profession of faith, sermon, prayer, Eucharist, etc. the work of Jesus and his means of grace (word and sacrament) take center stage in everything we do. The gospel story of CREATION, FALL, REDEMPTION, and RESTORATION create the base and form the outline for our gathered worship.

The gathered worship concludes with these words spoken responsively: "The worship is over" to which everyone responds "Let the service begin." In other words, let the main show -- how we live daily as Christians -- begin!
