Spiritual care is an integral component of our holistic care philosophy. Bethany Retirement Living is sponsored by 38 area Lutheran church congregations. Bethany's full-time Chaplain conducts weekly worship and monthly Communion services as well as individual personal spiritual counseling for residents, family members and employees of Bethany. We are dedicated to providing pastoral care for residents of all faiths including Catholic Mass celebrated by a local priest and worship services held by other area churches.
"And He left them and went out of the city to Bethany (a more quiet retired place), where he spent the night." Matthew 21:17
You are invited to attend our Sunday afternoon Vesper service. It includes Scripture readings, prayers, hymns and a sermon. Large-print worship and devotion books and hearing assistance devices are available for those who need them. Holy Communion is also celebrated each month and all are welcome. Chapel services may be broadcast into individual resident rooms and sacraments can be administered privately if requested.
Personal Spiritual Care
Our Bethany Chaplain conducts small group worship sessions, as well as Bible study group opportunities. While your personal pastor or priest is always welcome, you can feel at ease knowing our on-site Chaplain is always available to visit with you, especially during times of illness, death and dying, or for other special needs. Your visit may include Scripture readings, prayers, singing, and counseling as appropriate.
