So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. – Galatians 6:10

At Bethany we have several ways to assist those in our church family who are in times of urgent need:

  1. Benevolence Fund – Our church Board of Trustees gives oversight to our Benevolence Fund. This fund is money donated by the congregation specifically to help families in our church who have come upon times of crisis and financial hardship. If you are part of our church family and would like to request assistance, you can download the benevolence request form HERE. You can submit the form to the church office or via email at
  2. Bridging – Bethany Church is a referring agency for Bridging Inc.
