Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas!

You are invited to celebrate the season with your neighbors at Bethany Church. This year, our Christmas Eve theme is “It’s Your Birthday!”. We have scheduled three different services, each of which will include Candlelight and Holy Communion:

6:00 p.m., “Traditions” featuring our Chancel and Bell Choirs

8:00 p.m., “Celebrations” featuring our Praise Team

11:00 p.m., “Reflections,” a Service of Lessons and Carols, based on a worship order first used in 1918 at King’s College in Cambridge

Our Christmas Eve offering this year will go to Mission Central, a regional center that provides emergency relief supplies and countless other needs both here and abroad. Over $250,000 worth of supplies were shipped to Haiti to assist in earthquake recovery and, this year, Mission Central sent nearly $10 million worth of supplies through connections with hundreds of service and mission partners locally and internationally. Check out their website at http://www.missioncentral.org/.

God is doing some wonderful things among us. We are excited about new faces, new adventures in faith, new groups and new ministries, and new lifts to make our entire building wheelchair accessible. Hope to see you soon!

Once again: Merry Christmas!
