Our Beliefs

As devoted members of Bethany Lutheran Church, we are constantly pursuing the calling to be fully devoted followers of Christ. To build a true heaven on Earth, we live life based on the teachings of the Bible, are passionate about prayer and are grounded in spiritual accountability. If you are interested in joining our Church, please reach out. We would love for you to visit.

Since 1907, we have striven to create a strong community driven by the teachings of Jesus Christ, which are the guiding force in the lives of our growing congregation. Through our worship, activities and special community, we give our members the chance to become fully immersed in the wisdom and teachings of the Lord.

Bethany Lutheran Church is an inclusive church committed to Christ and His word. We are dedicated to sharing the love of Christ through ministry, fellowship and worship. Our church is not just a house of worship. At its core are the members and believers that come together to practice God’s word, celebrate His love and extend His gifts to all.

Our Pastors

Pastor

Ingrid Aderhold

Ingrid Aderhold became a pastor about 11 years ago, after having spent 20 years traveling with her husband and their two children during her husband’s career in the Air Force. This church is Aderhold’s second call, after having spent nine years at a church in Idaho.  Aderhold will be preaching in a more than 100-year-old building, which was first founded in 1907, according to Conner. About 50 members make up the official congregation, but attendance averages between 20 to 25 members each Sunday​

Aderhold said she believes it was more than chance that led her to the church.

“God brought me here,” she said.
