A Bethany Cookbook

NEW!  And OLD!

Way back in 2006, we created a cookbook for our 50th anniversary celebration.  Now - finally - we can offer a digital version of that precious recipe haven!  You'll find recipes from Pot-Lucks, Thanksgiving, and Coffee Hours!

Everyone is welcome to join the zoom.  Click for details!

In the COVID-19 era, so many of our brothers and sisters are in need of assistance.  As people of privilege many of us are in a wonderful position to do just that!  Read on to see how you might be able to help some our less fortunate neighbors!

Mission Partnership with our Neighbors

Thankyou Video

We've received a gracious video from Pastor Jorge Abdala of IPB (the Brazilian Presbyterian Church in San Mateo) thanking Bethany for the donations made to his congregation.  Click here to view his joyful message!

Every week on our Facebook page, a children's picture book story is read by a member or friend of our congregation.

The stories are ecumenical, and include both classic  and new stories, aligning with our principles of inclusion here at Bethany.

Outdoor Worship!

As Bethany's leadership continues to discuss when we will return to indoor worship, we have planned a few dates to worship safely, outside.

On August 1st we will hold our final outdoor worship before reopening day (September 12)  Please be with us at 10:00 am on Sunday for worship. We look forward to seeing you again!
