Wednesday 242
We are returning to our Wednesday night roots: fellowship, study, service and prayer. A reference to Acts 2:42, the new fall program will be called Wednesday 2:42 or w242, as we like to call it. Adult education will offer classes in Bible study, theology, life skills and service to the Bethany community.

Classes begin on Sept. 3 and continue through Dec. 17. Come, join us for a time of fellowship, breaking bread and prayers! w242 also includes programs for middle and high school students and younger children.
