About Us

Is this for me?

No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.

All are welcome. Really!

At Bethany UCC you will find a warm greeting without any pressure. Our members and friends have had many candles on their birthday cake and others just a few. Really, Come as you are: dressing casual or formal; comfortable in your faith or having a few lingering questions.

Seriously, all are welcome.

Up coming events

Vacation Bible School


Our talented Christian education team has put together a program with two nights of fun in the wild west. Elementary school aged children are invited to saddle up to discover that God gives good gifts. Thevenings of July 15&16 from 6pm-8:30pm will be a chance to explore the gifts God has given you through stories, crafts, games, and snacks.    

Congratulations to our Confirmand


We celebrate our confrimand's commitment to having studied and learned about our shared faith and congregation. It's been a blessing to watch a young man grow from childhood into his teen years. We welcome you as a member of our church and look forward to partnering with you in ministry. 

More to Come


Please, check back later. God is always doing something new and so are we.
