welcome! 

come as you are!

Whether you are a newcomer or lifelong member, when you come through the front doors at Bethany Lutheran Brethren Church, you are made to feel like family. It is our mission to know Christ and make Him known - that means that no matter where you have come from or where you are on your spiritual journey, we want to come alongside you to teach you about Christ Jesus.


Our Sunday services are about 75 minutes long and that time is spent singing, teaching and praying. Jesus simply says “Come to me” and we say the same - Come as you are! Our services are not age-distinct, we don’t have a dress code, and we’re not here to judge. We look forward to getting together and telling you all about the good things that God is doing in our church family. See you on Sunday!!

k.i.c.k. & nursery & nursing

Kids in Christ’s Kingdom (KICK) is our Sunday School program which takes place during our Worship Service each week in our Fellowship Hall building. It is for children age 4 through 5th Grade and led by Tove Nilsen and her staff of teachers. During this program, kids engage in a video series that takes them through the Bible in a fun and interactive way.


Nursery is available for ages 6 months through age 3 in the Basement. Our trusted teachers and helpers provide our little ones with play time, coloring, puzzles, and Cheerios during the Worship Service so that you can have the opportunity to better focus during the Worship Service.


We have a Nursing Room in the Balcony of the Sanctuary equipped with a rocking chair, changing table, Pack n’ Play, and live stream of the service. We want new mothers and their babies to feel welcome and comfortable during our Worship Service.


sunday school

Our Jr. High, High School, and Adult Sunday School classes meet every Sunday at 9:30am from September through June. These classes are an hour long and allow us to dig a little deeper into God’s Word in a smaller and more relaxed setting. Jr. High School meets in a classroom in the Balcony. High School meets in the Basement. Adults meet in the Sanctuary, and this class is taught by Pastor Paul Couch.
