Oct. 29 is Observance of Reformation Sunday

Bethany will again observe Reformation Sunday by celebrating with special Scottish music and refreshments … because the Presbyterian Church got its start in Scotland!  All are welcome to share in this celebration Sunday, October 29. The worship service starts 10:30 a.m., with Scottish refreshments at 11:30 a.m. Wear tartan or plaid!Reformation Sunday observes Reformation Day (Oct. 31), when Martin Luther historically posted his 95 theses leading to radical change—or reformation—of the organized church 500 years ago.

The reformed church promotes salvation by grace through faith, centrality of the Word (both preached and visible in the Lord’s Supper), and participation of all people in worship through congregational singing and reading of scripture and preaching.

We will hold a special Scottish baking morning on Saturday, October 28, 9 a.m.-12 noon, in the church kitchen. Come join in the fun as we make shortbread and scones!
