From the desk of Pastor Eric D. Clarke
Welcome to the Bethany Church where resurrection takes place thru anointed preaching & Holy Ghost singing. We welcome you on behalf of the Pastor, Officers & members. Please feel at home in the presence of God and our family. You are among friends who are delighted to worship with you. We appreciate you as our special guest of honor. We treasure your presence and endeavor to do all in our power to ensure that your worship experience with us is enjoyable, profitable and positively life changing.
You are encouraged to read the Bible thru this year. You can do this by reading 3 chapters each day and 5 chapters on 1 day of the week, a total of 23 chapters each week. You are encouraged to be faithful in all things. Lasting things are those that are done for Christ. Return a faithful tithe and freewill offering to God and watch Him open heaven’s windows to bless you.
