Advent at Bethany UCC 

We’re making plans for Advent at Bethany that will allow us all to celebrate and prepare for the birth of Jesus in a way that brings us true rest and joy. Advent is a season of preparation for a world of hope, peace, joy, and love.

So unplug. Rest. Laugh. Sing. Tell stories. Get cozy. Get Ready.
