Sunday, July 21


The Apostle Paul urged the people of Ephesus to sing the words and tunes of the psalms and hymns when they were together, and to go on singing and chanting to the Lord in their hearts, "always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Eph. 5:20 NIV).

Join us this Sunday for a very special service, blending both traditional and contemporary hymns, including "Amazing Grace", "How Deep the Father's Love For Us", "Love Remains" and much more! 

 

*****A Few Reminders*****

  • Bethany's "Love Offering" for Matt Hess and family continues this Sunday. This offering is to help offset the financial burdens the Hess family is facing following Matt's accident in the spring.  Once the collection is taken, all contributions will be sent to Matt's wife, Kortni.  Matt remains at Paoli Hospital, but hopes to be moved to Bryn Mawr rehab very soon.  Please  continue to keep Matt, Kortni and their family in your thoughts and prayers. A special Love Offering box will remain in the Narthex until August 4.  Please make checks payable to: Bethany Presbyterian Church (memo line): For K. Hess
  • Bethany is looking for volunteers to donate baked goods for our Peaches 'n Cream Festival.  We will accept both peach and non-peach items! If you would like Bethany to provide peaches for your baking, please sign up in the Narthex.  Peaches will be available for pick up on Thursday, August 15.  

 

  • Our mission table is outside for you to partake in any fresh produce, baked goods or flowers. You are welcome to take what you would like or contribute items for the table.  All proceeds will go toward His Mission and the Kennett Food Cupboard.

 

  • During the summer in case of any pastoral needs, please contact the Clerk of Session (Diana Keller) at the church email:  <info@bethanychurchpa.org> or 484-356-7443.  Diana or any of the Elders will be happy to assist with any needs or questions about upcoming services, plans or pastoral care.

A Prayer Garden at Bethany 
An outdoor sanctuary for the community


Dear Friends, 

    Have you longed for a spot where you might retreat to quietly contemplate God amid His glorious, natural world…maybe with a gazebo, a comfortable bench and colorful flowers abounding? 

    The Evangelism & Outreach Committee of Bethany Presbyterian Church is proposing just such an oasis on our church grounds. You may have noticed the stakes and the red tape that have recently taken root near the southeast corner of the parking lot.  That is where the Committee is planning a small garden, designed by Jim Swasey, and expressly for prayer and meditation.  Bethany's prayer garden is planned to include a twelve foot gazebo, benches, flowerbeds, trees and shrubs- all intertwined with a paved walkway and stepping stones.  

    We plan to dedicate the garden later this year in celebration of our 120th anniversary.  It will serve as a memorial to Bethany's saints and servants, past and present, as well as be open to our neighbors in the community to enjoy. 

    Please note that the Prayer Garden will be a project almost fully funded by donations from friends of Bethany and will not be included in its annual budget.  We hope to break ground as soon as possible in order to begin installation this spring.  There are also opportunities for you to make specific donations, including engraved brick pavers, benches and trees.  For more information on these items, please email us at info@bethanychurchpa.org or download the order form here.


Your donation to this project is gratefully appreciated.

In His Name,


The Prayer Garden  & Evangelism/ Outreach Committees
