We desire to make your visit to Bethany refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family. We want you to experience inspiring music, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcomed.

What Happens When I Get To Bethany?
You can find a place to park in our guest lot on the south side of 40th Street, just across the street from our main entrance. As you approach the main entrance, one of our hospitality greeters will meet you and direct you to our welcome center, where you can find the right classes and services. They can also answer other questions you may have.
At 11:00 on Sunday morning, adults attend a traditional worship service where they enjoy the beautiful and inspiring music of the choir, and join in congregational singing. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message. This service is about one hour in length. Also, at 9:45 AM, there are adult Bible classes. These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people, perhaps enjoy some coffee and donuts, and hear a teaching lesson more directly applicable to your age or life-stage. The best way to get to know people at Bethany is to visit one of these adult Bible classes.
Where Do I Take My Children?
Starting with excellent nurseries, there is something special for every age child. At every service there are safe, clean, and highly staffed nurseries for children three years old and under. For the infants, mothers will receive a pager so that the nursery attendants can easily contact you if there is a need. For children four years old through sixth grade, there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child.
Our campus has a few different buildings, and we understand you might not know where to go at first. Itís not as complicated as it looks, and we would like to help you find the appropriate nurseries, classes, and services for every person in your family. Our greeters and ushers are located around campus as well as in the lobby of the main auditorium building and will gladly help direct and even escort you to the right place.
What About My Teens?
Our student ministries are broken down into three main divisions: junior high, high school, and college. Most of the teens attend a class for one hour and then join in the main worship service the following hour.
How Should I Dress?
We donít have a dress code at Bethany for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional ĎSundayí dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Bethany Baptist!
Am I Expected To Give In The Offering?
No. We donít invite you to Bethany for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from Godís Word, and a place where you can grow in Godís grace. Please donít feel any obligation to participate in the offering as our guest.
If thereís something we missed on this list, just give us a call, or ask someone when you arrive. Whether youíre new to the area and looking for a church home, or if itís been a long time since youíve attended church at all, we hope your first visit at Bethany Baptist will be great! We exist to serve you and your family, and we are looking forward to meeting you personally. We hope youíll feel right at home from the very first moment you step onto campus! Let us know how we can serve you better, and we hope to meet you this Sunday!
