Worship at Bethany

Let’s worship together! Worship with us in person at 8:30 or 10:00am (MT).  
Our 10:00am service is also live-streamed and archived on our YouTube page.

No reservations will be required to attend either service but we do ask that you refrain from being on campus if you have any Covid, cold, or flu symptoms or have been exposed recently. (Per the CDC, fully vaccinated people will not be required to wear masks. But masks are still encouraged, particularly for anyone with non-vaccinated people in their homes, or those who have, or care for others, with health issues. And, many of us simply feel more comfortable wearing a mask in group settings). Please be aware of others’ comfort levels. If you are in a pew and wish to create social distance, feel free to lay some worship books down up to 6′ from you as a signal for others to allow for this. Also, all services in the Sanctuary will include Holy Communion.
