Giving

Our giving at Bethany is shaped by four foundational convictions demonstrated in the lives of the 1st-century believers in Corinth and Macedonia (1 Cor. 16 and 2 Cor. 8). Following their pattern, we believe we are called to give Systematically, Sacrificially, Proportionately, and Cheerfully.

There are several ways you can give to support Bethany. You can give during our Sunday Morning Worship Gathering, online, through our mobile app, or by text.
