Advent Worship Services at Bethany
Home; ‘a safe place’ a refuge, a place of security and safety, in our Christmas carols we sing of being Home for Christmas and create idyllic scenes of fires, snow, and families gathered together. But what happens when home is disrupted? When everything we thought we knew, everything we believed to be true changes, what happens when home never existed, when one must flee home for safety and a chance of a new life?
“The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where
we can go as we are and not be questioned.” -Maya Angelou
This Advent Season at Bethany United Methodist church we’ll explore the idea of Home and what it means, through the lens of the Christmas narrative as we examine modern day concerns of homelessness, immigration and refugees. How do we make home for those without, for those seeking, and for those who are unwanted?
Journey Home with us this Advent Season.
Special Christmas Services
We celebrate Christmas Eve with two services, one at 4:00 p.m. for families needing lots of wriggle room and one at 7:00 p.m. for more formal lessons and carols. Both are fun and involve lots of candlelight. Children are welcome at either service.
