Bethany is a Community of Justice and Peace serving
the needs of people on their spiritual journey.
Jesus taught that God invites all people, including society’s outcasts, to enjoy seats at God’s table. Our congregation seeks to demonstrate that vision by intentionally welcoming individuals and families of every age, race, marital status, sexual orientation, means, ability and spiritual tradition to join us in the love of God and service to our neighbors. We are committed to working toward social and economic justice as we embrace our community.
"Changing Lives" is more than a slogan or phrase; it is the lifeblood of ministry and mission in the United Church of Christ. Bethany UCC seeks to serve God in innovative ways. God continues to form us through new people among us, offering a multicultural mosaic that reflects all of creation. We celebrate our common ground, while honoring our differences. OUR FAITH IS OVER 2000 YEARS OLD...OUR THINKING IS NOT!
In our worship we use language and imagery that reflect the wonderful diversity of the image of God in humanity and all creation; that transcend the exclusive language of the church’s past. We urge you to join us in the journey toward God’s justice and peace for all people – in this neighborhood, this city, and the world. Come, be our guest, worship and celebrate with us.
We are members of the Western North Carolina Association of the UCC Southern Conference
“The spiritual journey is one with many twists and turns. The best way to navigate your journey is in the company of other believers. Bethany is a fellowship of believers who embrace a Still Speaking God; a God who extends grace and love to all, and continues to reveal new insights into our world. You are invited to travel with us as we grow in knowledge and love of God and others. Come and be part of this exciting adventure we call Bethany United Church of Christ.”
