The Bethany Bullet Sermon Message - Week of May 31, 2020...Includes Prayer Vigil Information

The Bethany Bullet is a weekly capsule of worship highlights and big information that your brain may or may not have 'downloaded' from the prior Sunday. The purpose is to bolster you in faith, build you up in the key Biblical themes shared the previous Sunday in worship, to bring to mind the important issues on Bethany's plate and to broaden your awareness of opportunities of service to your Lord, your church, and your community. Tell a friend about The Bethany Bullet! (

Always Been Essential...Never Been Closed.

The church has always been essential!  There is nothing more essential than a living faith relationship with the Lord of Life who daily and richly forgives sins for the sake of Christ, restores connections to Himself and His family, grants strength to trust in His promises and speaks His Word of hope, power and love to His own through the ministry of His bride the church. 

Always been essential...Never been closed.  Even as we’ve always been essential, Bethany Lutheran Church has never been closed!  We’ve certainly not been closed at Bethany during the Covid pandemic.  Though we have not had on campus worship opportunities (outside of individual household services of confession, absolution and communion) we’ve been open and as busy (busier) than ever.

In this month of June, Bethany will begin to return to some various forms of on campus worship options. The Bullet and website will keep you informed.  Bethany will continue to have a prerecorded, on-line, off campus worship option throughout the summer.  Bethany’s Site-Specific Covid-19 protection plan will be viewable on our website as soon as it is completed (coming soon).

This Sunday June 7th we will host on campus Prayer Vigils from 8:00-10:30AM.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED to attend a vigil.  These services itself will last approximately 15 minutes in length, outside around the Cross Tower in Friendship Square.  Face masks will be REQUIRED.  To maintain social distancing we are limiting attendance to a maximum of one dozen households per vigil.  As these services are outdoors the Sanctuary will be closed.  We ask you to please use the restroom at home before attending.  Once the vigil is complete you’ll be asked to leave campus immediately through the Friendship Square office, Cross Tower gate.  Please park in the front lot and enter campus through the rolling gate and proceed to the Cross Tower at the far west end of Friendship Square.

Please DO NOT Register if…
DO NOT register if you are in a high risk category. DO NOT register to attend if you or a member of your household is sick.  DO NOT attend if you or a member of your household feels ill the day of. Your health & safety as well as the health & safety of our staff and others attending are of our utmost concern. Thank you for your understanding. If you are unable to register…we encourage you to join us in prayer from home. We would be happy to forward you copy of the Prayer Vigil’s Order of Service…email Cindy Morrison at to receive a copy.
