We are so glad you want to visit Bethany Church! We meet each Sunday at 9am and at 10:45am to worship together.
A Multi-generational Church Family
During our first service at 9am our kids join us in family worship. We love having the littlest preschoolers all the way through elementary students with us in the service. We believe that they are not part of the future church, but are part of the church now. We invite our children to stay for the first service and have a note taking program for elementary kids called Little Listeners to help them track with the sermon. There might be a little more noise, wiggling in seats, and giggling but we are okay with that! It's a joy to hear their little voices joined with all the generations as we sing to our great God together. We also have a cry room just across the hall with a live feed of the service, a clean carpet for crawling, comfortable nursing chair, and toys for playing with should your little one need additional room to move about.
A Great Sunday School Program
We have a wonderful nursery program offered during our second service at 10:45am for ages 0-3 with many loving grandmas and mothers just waiting to cuddle and care for your littlest family members. We also have a great, age- appropriate Sunday School program during second service for ages 3 through 6th grade. Our teachers and staff will lead your children through Christ-centered curriculum that seeks to find Jesus in every story of the Bible.
A Gospel-Centered Worship Service
The Gospel is the center of all that we do at Bethany Church. Because of God's great grace for us, we are able to love, learn, serve, and grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior. Our worship, Scripture readings, and prayer all point us in gratitude to the One who has graciously redeemed us and calls us His own.
Relevant Systematic Bible Teaching
Our sermon series are exegetical as we go through a book of the Bible thoroughly to understand the author's intent, what was going on in the culture, where Jesus is revealed, and how we can be changed by the hearing and preaching of His word. We believe each book of the Bible continually points us back to the Gospel and reveals God's glory to us.
A Church IN the Community FOR the Community
We are not just located IN Canby, but want to be FOR Canby. We love our town and want to see God work in Canby for His glory. We humbly seek to serve our neighbors and show them the grace and love we have so generously been given.
An Emphasis on Life Group Ministry
The Christian life is meant to be lived in community. The best way to get plugged in at Bethany Church is through one of our Life Groups that meet at various times and locations in and around Canby. This smaller setting offers a relaxed atmosphere to pray together, ask questions, and go deeper as we study His Word and discuss the sermon together.
