For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this tent we groan, longing to put on our heavenly dwelling, if indeed by putting it on we may not be found naked. For while we are still in this tent, we groan, being burdened—not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. –2 Corinthians 5:1-21.
The header photo for October refers to Homecoming, October 15. All those who have been part of the Bethany family at any time are welcomed home, to join us in worship, and for a homecoming dinner on the grounds (actually, under the pavilion). We welcome you whether you are part of Bethany now, or once were; whether you live here or elsewhere; we welcome you as part of the One Body of Christ!
