Welcome! Fall is here and everything is moving into high gear here at Bethany. Bible Study, Topic Study, Book study, fellowship, Sunday School, coffee hours, new outreach projects....the calendar is full. We began our Fall worship with a joint service with our brothers and sisters from Holy Trinity. We worshiped at Holy Trinity and celebrated our summer Mission Possible challenge. We heard from three speakers about the work God is doing in Elmira and that God was doing through us over the summer. You can also see that many of us showed up in our God's Work. Our Hands T-shirts to celebrate the day!
Worship at Bethany is now on its fall schedule:
Adult Study at 9:30am
Sunday School at 10:00am,
Worship at 10:45am followed by Coffee Hour
Confirmation at 12:30pm
Sunday worship will follow the Narrative Lectionary
This fall we will explore the creation of God’s covenant with us and delve into what it looks like to live as a Covenant People with God. Every week we will each add a link to an ever growing chain that will represent God’s covenant with us as we walk with Abraham and Sarah, Joseph, Moses and Miriam, Joshua, and David and Bathsheba through the hopes and sorrows of human life. Watch as God continually claims us as his own people and brings again and again a covenant of life and joy. Then with the chain circling above us we will follow Solomon, Elisha, Micah, Isaiah and Jeremiah call us to live out this covenant life with God.
