The name Bethany (Beth-a-nee) is a Biblical name of Hebrew origin. In the New Testament, Bethany was the name of a village in ancient Palestine at the foot of the Mount of Olives near Jerusalem. According to the New Testament, it was the site of the resurrection of Lazarus. Mary, Martha and Lazarus lived there. Jesus had stayed there during the Holy Week. The name means a house of figs or dates and suggests warmth. On the other hand, it sometimes means (Aramaic) house of misfortune and poverty. The name is often used in honor of Mary of Bethany and stands for selfless, devoted service (Disciple of God-Hebrew).
The Bethany Sunday School Class was organized in October of 1948. The class symbol is the rose and the class colors are Red and Ivory. The goal of the Bethany Class is to “Love on another as God loves on us!” Our class is active in the TWC Campaign and Mission Action. Our class song is “I Love to Tell the Story” and we hope each of us touch the lives of someone daily as we confess faith in Christ as Savior and Lord.
As the name Bethany suggests our class expresses “warmth” and aims for selfless, devoted service to God and His people. Please join us any Sunday at 9:30 am for Sunday School. The Bible passages we study are applicable to the decisions and difficulties we are faced with each day. If you need assistance or someone to pray for you please call our church office or submit your request through this website. We are there for you!
