July 28th was our final worship service together as Bethany Covenant Church. We celebrated the life and ministry of Bethany Covenant Church with a full sanctuary - many stories, hymns of the faith, Scripture, and prayer. Thank you to all who made Bethany the church it was for 109 years!
Becoming a Living Legacy church means that we courageously and faithfully chose to close in order to pass on our assets to our Conference and our Denomination for the starting of new churches in our region. We trust that God will bless and use our assets as new churches are formed - that increasing numbers of all ages will meet God, be changed, and change the world.
We did not arrive at this decision easily - but made it together after great questions and discussion, prayer and discernment. We go forward knowing that God's love for us is certain, even when times are difficult.
