Unity in the Body of Christ

This member class is also a bible study through the book of Ephesians! Join us as we dive into this letter to the church in Ephesus and find the ways in which it speaks to us as people of faith and members of the Body of Christ!

Quarterly Planning Meeting!

Thursday, September 20th at 6:30 pm.  You’re invited to join with council members and other leaders in our church to go over the next quarter. We’ll be looking at upcoming events, discussing carpet samples and reviewing the Strategic Action Plan. Your input is encouraged, appreciated and welcomed.

 

Service & Youth Planning Meeting

We’ll be having a meeting on September 25th at 2 pm for members and friends interested in projects for service and youth! Join us as we discuss needs we already know about, opportunities we’re looking forward to, and what this next year might hold for our service projects and youth programs at Bethany Lutheran!

 

A Place Where People Care – Lay Pastoral Care Training

We are looking for additional ways to bolster the caring ministry with one another. Working alongside the Pastor, an important part of care ministry is reaching out to members and friends of our church with listening, prayers, and care.  On September 26th at 3 pm, we’ll be hosting a 2-hour training for those who are interested in learning more about care ministry through lay pastoral care.  Please RSVP with Pastor Megan.  We hope you’ll join us!

 

Fall Salad Supper!

The Fall Salad Supper will be held on Thursday, September 27th at 5:00pm.  This year’s theme is “Grandma’s Hankies”.   Do you have hankies in your drawer or memory box?  Bring them!  We will be using these for decorating and would love to hear the stories behind them. Barb Boswell, author of 3 books and cancer survivor, will be the guest speaker for the evening.  Barb’s latest book is, “Every Time I Turn Around, God Whispers in My Ear”.   Bring your favorite salad… potato, pasta, fruit, dessert, or jello.  We love variety!  Mark your calendars for this awesome evening!  If you have questions contact Kathy Newton or Norma Oyloe.

 

Walking Group

Our walking group meets the first and third Wednesday of the month at 2:30 pm.  We leave from Bethany and get outside for some light physical activity, and sometimes a light workout.  A great way to exercise and get a little fellowship at the same time.  Contact Pastor Megan for more information!

 

Breakfast Group

Our Breakfast Group meets weekly for good food and fellowship, on Tuesday’s at 8:00 am at the Carriage Restaurant on 12th Avenue in Longview.  Need more info?  Contact Bill Zimmerman or Roger Lee.

 

The Garden

“The Garden” is a once monthly Wednesday evening worship service of word and music and we are looking for help with ushers, readers, soloists, and a mini-coffee hour.  There is a sign-up sheet on the blue bulletin board in the hallway.  Contact Pastor Megan or musician Susan Johnson for more information!  Our next Garden service is Wednesday, October 17th at 6:45 pm.
