Bethany Presbyterian Church

Information from previous events...

Our hearts are heavy as we grieve with our sisters and brothers across this land who are affected by gun violence, and wonder at the senseless acts of hate that continue to infect our society: in Orlando, Minnesota, Louisiana, Dallas, and the entire United States.

We grieve at the sytemic racism in our cities and towns, and the ease with which lethal weapons can be obtained, even by people in poor mental health.  

As a More Light congregation, we are particularly distressed at the homophobic roots of the terrible events which took place at The Pulse in Orlando, Florida, on June 12, 2016

Please join with us in prayer for those who were murdered; for their loved ones, and for our country - that God's vast love and acceptance will prevail over all people, everywhere.

We've planned a very special First Saturday Dinner for our 60th Anniversary!  Details here!
