e-Giving at Bethany

Giving is an act of worship and makes possible the many ministries and missions of Bethany United Methodist Church.  As believers, we know that obedient giving glorifies God and meets the needs of many in our church, community, and the world.  As we give to meet the needs of others God will also supply everything we need (Luke 6:38, Philippians 4:19).

There are many ways to give at Bethany!  You can support the ministries and missions of our church by:

  • Praying for our church
  • Actively serving in our church
  • Providing financial support in a number of different ways:
    • Traditional giving by check 
    • Giving through the bill payment service of your bank
    • And most recently, e-Giving through our website and via the mobile app 
    • Coming soon — Giving by text

A CAREGIVER SUPPORT GROUP sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association meets the first Thursday of the month at 10 a.m. in the Mary Lotsey Classroom.    The monthly meetings, conducted by trained facilitators, provide a safe place for caregivers, family and friends of persons with dementia to develop a support system, exchange practical information on care giving challenges and possible solutions, talk through issues and ways of coping, share feelings, needs and concerns, and learn about community resources. Do you know of someone who could benefit from this group?   Please let them know of this opportunity.  For more information, email or call the church office at 804-642-2110.
