Once upon a time in a land not too far, far away, there were church newsletters.

You may be wondering why Bethany Christian Church no longer sends one of these magical mailpieces. The answer is quite simple... information travels in 2016 at the speed of your internet connection. News is quick and convenient to obtain without having to wait for the mailman to deliver. Most Bethany members have been receiving their news via email for several years now. If you would like to receive the weekly Bethany e-News, email firstname.lastname@example.org so that you too may be informed of all the latest and greatest.
