Welcome to Bethany
Welcome to Bethany Lutheran Church on Bainbridge Island, Washington, and thanks for visiting us on the web. At Bethany, we seek to do God's will through joyful outreach near and far, hospitality toward all, and spritual growth that amazes. You'll find details about us and our ministries on this site.
Visitors are always welcome to join us in worship and in service to our Lord. If you're thinking of joining us at worship for the first time, you'll find some useful information under the Visiting tab.
Thanks for visiting us on the web, and we hope to see you soon face to face.
Today's Bible Verse,
Bethany is 100 Years New
Bethany celebrates its centennial throughout 2013, weaving the past into the present and the future. Not 100 years old, but 100 years new, growing in faith, hospitality and service on the foundation of Christ and our first 100 years. Follow the celebration on our centennial web site.
Photos from our Centennial Celebration on May 19 are now available in the Bethany Picture Gallery. Thank you to ELCA Presiding Bishop Mark Hanson and his wife Ione for celebrating 100 years of ministry with us.
Listen to Bishop Hanson's sermon online.
Coming up: Pastor Bill and Barbara Rizer visit Bethany on June 1 and 2.

The Lutheran Anthology of Humor returns to Bethany on June 1 with acts that will amaze, delight, confuse and move you. Music, dance, theatrics and multi-tasking. (You will have to come to know what that means.) All of this for only $10 per person. Desserts and beverages will be available for purchase, and all proceeds will go to support Compass Housing Alliance.
