The Art of Bethany

From March 16 - April 13, 2014, Bethany Church will be presenting an Art Show. The exhibit will be open each day from 10 am - 8 pm in the chapel.  Come in and enjoy the show!
Opening Gala for Art @ Bethany!
Next Sunday, March 16th  3-5 pm in the Chapel. The show will feature works by Arthur Zorn, Sarah Munro, Kimberley Greeno, Kevin Macneil Brown and William Adams.   Come meet the artists, talk with them about their work, and enjoy light refreshments.  Tickets are by donation at the door and proceeds go to support the work of Bethany Church in the community.  Join us!

Help needed in waxing Fellowship Hall  Rescheduled
Due to sickness and shortage of volunteers. On Sat., Mar. 22,@ 8 am The Property Board will gather to sweep, wash and wax the floor in Fellowship Hall. They would appreciate the help of 4-5 more people. If 8 am seems too early 9 or 10 is not too late as those who have been here will need a break. This effort will take 3-4 hours depending on the number of helpers. Please call Gary Rogers @ 229-9893 if you can help. (If we need to cancel then Gary will know who to call.)

Let’s get serious about our Auction.

It’s on April 5 (no foolin’).

Have you signed up to help during the Auction?  If you can’t be at the Auction, will you send in something for the refreshments?  Have you found an item or more to donate for the sale?  The sign-up sheets are on the bulletin board by the Chapel doors.  Items to sell may be delivered to the Red Door Room beginning on March 31 for four days only (not on Friday that week).

Annual Variety Show &
San Antonio Grande Fundraiser Dinner
It all happens on April 12^th! There will be a charge for the dinner which starts at 5:30. Show immediately following is free. Contact Theresa Lever with any questions about the dinner. If you would like to have an Act in the show, please contact Joanne Hardy ( ( ).

You will not find a more appreciative audience.  Come for the food!  Come for the show!  All are welcome!

Good Samaritan Haven Sunday Supper
Next Sunday the 22 we will bring in and bless the Sunday Meal that goes to the homeless shelter. Sign up this week and bring it in next week.

Would the individual who has pledge envelope #661 please see Judy Ribolini. She can't find her list and there was no name on the envelope. Thank you.

Finance Update
We have reached a point in our fiscal year where expenses sometimes exceed income.  Any increase or pre-payment of your pledge, as well as other financial contribution toward Bethany’s operating expenses, is greatly appreciated.

Lenten Book Study
Starts today, we will be looking at the book, "The Last Week", by Marcus Borg and J. Dominic Crossan. The book's subtitle is "What the Gospels Really Teach about Jesus' Final days in Jerusalem". Starting with Palm Sunday and ending with Easter, the book looks at what the Bible says and doesn't say while looking for metaphorical meaning in what is actually said. We will discuss what we learn and what it means for us.
Discussion/class will be on Sundays from 11:30ish to 1 pm. We are looking at Chapters 1 & 2 today.

BUT WAIT! THERE IS MORE! If you want to be a part of discussing the book, but cannot make it to class (ever or every time) there will be an online component for those who wish. There you can read what the class thought important and add your own comments and questions. There is a link on the church website or you can go

Music Committee- will meet on Thursday March 20 @ 5:30 p.m. in the Music Room.
