BYG Costume Party
on November 2nd, 2020
We had a wonderful time at our BYG Halloween Costume Party this past Sunday as 24 youth came to enjoy fellowship with one another. We had all sorts of amazing costumes and most of all we had fun together. We thank the parents for providing pizza and helping with the decorations in the fellowship hall to make it a wonderful event. And of course our youth leaders who were able to help lead the games...
Fall Fellowship with the BYG
on September 29th, 2020
On a beautiful Sunday evening, my backyard became the BYG hub for a couple of hours. Thirty-one youth converged around the camp fire with lots of fellowship and laughter. Many hot dogs were consumed. We played an outdoor bowling game and had two piñatas. Then time for s'mores. Several of the youth were guests of members and said it was so fun that they want to come back to BYG! Thank you to the y...
Supporting Our Brothers and Sisters in Haiti
on September 24th, 2020
The people of Haiti continue to be plagued by a failing government, increased violence and natural disasters. Roving gangs patrol the streets beating and robbing people, setting homes on fire and causing chaos.

Looking for Lite
on August 27th, 2020
What a pleasant experience to be able to gather with so many of you at Blanket Fest. Just hearing the happy voices and children’s laughter eased our troubles. With the exception of masks and having to stay in seating pods, it was spectacularly normal!

A brief tour of the facility and explanation of our tasks was followed by getting...
Back to School with Bethany
on August 13th, 2020
More than 100 students showed up to receive their Blessing Bags at our Back to School event. What a blessing to be able to provide our students with supplies and a prayer as they begin their new school journey this year. A little bit of rain couldn’t stop the fun!
Loving Our Neighbor in the Name of Jesus
on July 22nd, 2020
With their mission trip to Philadelphia cancelled due to COVID-19, the Bethany Youth Group looked for an opportunity to serve closer to home. Beloved BYG teacher, Joan Kundra, was finding it difficult to keep up with the maintenance of her yard after the passing of her husband. From weeding to trimming branches, the kids were not afraid to roll up their sleeves in the name of God’s love and service.
Reopening Our Doors for Worship
on July 2nd, 2020
This Sunday, we’re opening the sanctuary doors for real time worship, with real people, safely gathered together. Thanks to the passion and innovation of dedicated church members we will also provide livestream and audio versions.
Glimpses of Grace
on August 6th, 2019
What does it mean to “run with the horses”, to live fully, courageously and authentically for God? As we will see with Jeremiah and also a parable from Jesus, God wants to be in a relationship with us; and that means to be honest, open and trusting with God.
