Pancake and Prayer Breakfast: Our first Pancake and Prayer Breakfast takes place this Sunday, March 6th at 9:15am. During the season of Lent, Bethany will host a pancake breakfast on three Sunday mornings, simple meals primarily geared toward our children and families, but open to absolutely everyone. They will include pancakes and a Bible Story, prayers and a song...oh, and fellowship. Remember fellowship? Come and join us for this meal.
Lenten Soup Suppers and Prayer Service: Our first Lenten soup supper is next Wednesday, March 9. We will gather at 6:00pm for a soup supper and simple prayer service each Wednesday in Lent, March 9 – April 6. If you are able to help by bringing a soup or bread for one of the meals, see the sign-up sheet on the hall bulletin board.
Bible Study in March: The Men’s Bible Study group will meet on Tuesday, March 8 and Tuesday, March 22 at 8:00am. The Rachel Circle Bible Study group will meet Tuesday, March 8 at 10:00am, followed by quilting. The Women’s Bible Study group will meet on Monday, March 14 at 9:30am in fellowship hall.
Saturday Service Accompanist Needed: With the return of the Saturday evening service, Bethany is looking for an accompanist to help with one or two Saturdays a month.

Baby Kit Members Need your Help; The Baby Kit team makes receiving blankets and diapers from used flannel sheets or pieces at least 22" by 27". They are low on flannel. If you have sheets you have been thinking about replacing, please remember them. They can also use men's large or larger cotton t-shirts for diapers. Women's XL or larger would probably work too. If the shirts have pictures or writing on them no problem. If the necks are stretched or yellowed, no problem, they don't use that part. And if you have sheets that aren't flannel, the Quilters can usually use them. Thanks for your help, Marlene Orwiler, Rachel Circle member.
Updated Bethany Directory: An updated Bethany Directory is now available! Pick up a printed copy in the narthex. To protect everyone’s personal contact information, we will not post the directory electronically. If you would like a printed copy mailed to you, contact Debbie in the office at 206.842.4241 or .
