A Greeting from our Pastor

Let me begin by saying “Welcome to our community of faith!”  It is our hope that you will encounter God in powerful ways through worship, Bible Study, fellowship, and service, and that you will feel connected with those you meet.


Bethany Baptist Church is a historical church that began meeting in 1770.  We have been in existence for almost 250 years and our heritage has been shaped by committed Christian believers who have sought to deepen their faith and to impact the surrounding community in a multitude of ways for Christ.


We would love to answer any questions you have about ways to deepen your faith journey, or about ways to get involved in our family of faith.  Please do not hesitate to contact us.  I would love to have the opportunity to visit with you and your family about connecting with our congregation. 

May you be challenged.  May you be embraced.  May you be blessed.


Dr. Susan McBride

Interim Pastor

Coronavirus and Worship Update

Returning to a mixture of In-Person and Drive-In Worship


Beginning Sunday, March 28, 2021, Bethany Baptist Church Family will return to a mixture of In-Person, Drive-In worship and posting the sermon on our website: come2bethany.org.  The Order of Worship is still available for download.  In-Person worship (with Drive-up Worship option available) will be on the first Sunday of the month, with Drive In Worship continuing the rest of each month due to COVID 19 restrictions.  The exception to this will be Easter Sunday, April 4, which will be our return to Drive-In Worship with the worship team on the front porch.
