Summer Celebration

Sunday, July 24th 5:00 PM

Join us for dinner by the lake by registering on your MyBethany or today’s communication card. After dinner we will meet to vote and have a time of baptism and testimonies.

Family Worship Focus

June 26th – July 24th

Children’s Program 9AM Service: 0-12th Grade
Children’s Program 10:30AM Service: 0-K Only

We believe worshipping together as a family is an important part of family discipleship, so we encourage our older children to join their family in the sanctuary. This also allows for a time of refreshment for our teachers and helpers.

Baptism Opportunity

There is an upcoming opportunity to be baptized at our Summer Celebration service. You can use today’s communication card to sign up to be baptized.

If you have questions, concerns, or a desire for counseling on the topic of baptism we would love to connect you with a Pastor or Elder. Email us at info@bethanycentral.org or call the Church Office (309) 692-1755.

By-Law Update

We will soon be voting on an update to our by-laws. More information will be in your inbox shortly including a copy of the proposed changes and an accompanying letter. Hard copies are available at the Connection Corner and are posted by the office.

Bethany Leadership

During our Summer Celebration event there will be an Affirmation vote and Confirmation of new leaders at Bethany. More details will be coming on the candidates and the vote soon.

Building Updates

During the Summer Celebration event, we will be voting to approve building updates in support of our ministry. Leading up to this vote, we will be sharing a special video during today’s service with more details on the vision and scope of these updates.

Watch for future communication and online resources that will provide further details in the coming weeks.

We will also be having two Q&A opportunities to answer specific questions that anyone may have.
