The Bethany Quartet has been singing at Bethany and other venues since 1987! They celebrated their 30th anniversary with a mini-concert, with a little help from their (musical) friends. See the entire concert (a series of 10 videos) here. Below is the classic American hymn, "How Can I Keep From Singing?"
Bethany's Thanksgiving celebration has long been a favorite through the years. Every year is a bit different, but the talent is always entertaining, and often spectacular!

Christmas at Bethany ~ December 17, 2017
Part of Bethany's rich heritage is the many fine musicians who have blessed our little church. Performing in the Christmas concert were the Chancel Choir and the Bethany Quartet (although regretably, there is no video of their performances), Bethany Prayz, and the song stylings of Craig Bray, Lyn Hughes, and George Lynch.
