Mark your calendars for Sunday, August 7th! Pastor Pittenger is celebrating 20 years in the pastoral ministry this year as well as 20 years as pastor at Bethany. We will be holding a special anniversary service that day. This is also the day of the annual church picnic. Due to the special service, there will be *no* Monday night service on August 8th. Come and rejoice with us in the Lord’s many blessings to Bethany through Pastor Pittenger!

Sunday Afternoon, 7/24 or 8/28
Guys! Join Pastor Pittenger to discuss the challenges, rewards and promises wrapped up in this thing called ‘fatherhood’, using the book “Being Dad” by Scott Leonard Keith. Here’s how: Pick the date that works best for you, and let Pastor know. For 7/24, check out a copy of the book in the office ASAP; for 8/28, he’ll get a book to you on July 25th. Then get together with him on the appropriate date over some drinks and snacks to discuss it.

Stay tuned for next meeting details
Our book club continues with Frankenstein.
Wait! If you've only seen movies or cartoons; brides of Frankenstein, young Frankensteins, and sons of Frankenstein, you don't know the real story. It isn't as gruesome and gory and corny as you've been led to believe.
Doctor Frankenstein confronts the finality of death. Can modern technology help him? Where should ethics draw the line between what we should do and what we could do with life and technology? In the end, what is man capable of making and what are his limitations?
If you've never read the book before (or even if you have), read it this fall and join us for our discussion. As we get closer to our date I'll be posting news articles, snippets from medical/technological advances, and Scripture references to add to our discussion.
You can find the book almost anywhere; libraries, bookstores, online, etc. It is widely available through apps for phones and tablets (the free versions are the same text as the others).
