Flowers may be ordered from the florist to be delivered to the church by Friday noon or loose flowers may be arranged by you or a member of the flower committee.

New Members- This is a great church. Great people, great worship, great mission, great community. Do you want to have your name connected with Bethany Church, UCC? Please call or email the church office with your name and contact information so we can set this up. We need you and have lots to offer you.

Good Samaritan Haven Dinner- The date of the next dinner for Good Samaritan Haven homeless shelter is Sunday, November 27th The number of people at the shelter is unusually large so many people are needed to pitch in and prepare the meal. Please help the Outreach Board continue this ministry. The sign-up sheet can be found on the Outreach section of the bulletin board or on the table in the Parlor during Hospitality. Remember that your giving doesn’t stop when you deliver the food to Bethany for the blessing. By your gift you are truly following the Gospel’s call to feed the hungry and to welcome the stranger. Many thanks!!
