A big part of our church is serving our community. Our main outreach focus is the local schools; we are committed to serve the local schools and their families with excellence.
In our culture, sharing the gospel begins with demonstrating the love of God in a tangible way, no strings attached. We seek to do this outside the walls of our church through these GO! (Generosity Outreach) projects:
SERVE QC SUNDAYS (Spring and Fall): We meet at the church for a brief time of worship and then go out into the community in service teams to do some landscaping clean-up at local schools, visit with residents in nursing homes, deliver treats to first responders, etc.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL in Stephens Park: Each year we reach 80-100 children from our community, sharing the gospel with love and fun.
BACKPACK GO! PROJECT: Passing out backpacks loaded with school supplies to needy families in the Quad Cities.
GROWTH GROUP GO! PROJECTS multiply our ability to be a generous church by sending our Growth Groups to serve at a rescue mission, do yard work for needy neighbors, serve at an after school program, and more.
BACK 2 SCHOOL BASH: Although this happens here at Bethany, God has used it to help us reach out to those who need Christ's love by providing a safe and kid-friendly activity with games, food, and a main event that brings a smile to everyone's face.
