2016 JONAHThe Jubilation Singers with the Caroler Choir will present their spring musical “Oh Jonah!” on Sunday, May 15th at the 10:00am service.

It’s more than a story about the prophet Jonah and a big fish. It’s also a story about us! The tale involves responsibility, repentance, and listening for the Word of God in our lives. It’s also about accepting people who are different than we are, and saying YES when God calls our name to do His work!  Please make plans to join us for this “whale” of a tale!

It is the works of love that Bethany’s Ministry Council is focusing on this entire year, through the Plug In 2016 campaign. There are many ways that you can feel more connected to your Bethany community through works of love, starting with Service in Worship. Plug In 2016 – a Lenten discipleship opportunity!
