Welcome to Bethany Lutheran Church in Salisbury, MD on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Our doors and hearts are always open. We are eager to know you and excited to share with you the marvelous ways God is working in our church.


Who are we?

We are a loving church family who follows the teachings of Martin Luther as expressed in Ephesians 2:8 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.

What are we?

We are a Missouri Synod congregation, established in 1931, of approximately 150 communicant members.

Where are we?

We are located in Salisbury, MD on the corner of Camden Ave. and South Blvd.

Why do we exist?

We exist, as a church body in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to learn of Him through His Holy Scriptures, to worship Him only, and to serve Him by meeting the needs of others and by sharing the gift of salvation through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


Our verse for November:

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”  ~Romans 12:12

 

Practice joy:  As you step out of bed in the morning, thank God aloud for this new day He has made.  Shout or sing!.

Quiet Time for the Preoccupied Mind
There are so many things that we are concerned about but so little we control. We need God. There is undeniable power in prayer.  On the first Friday of every month, beginning Oct 4th from 4-7 pm the church will be open for silent meditation, personal reflection and one-on-one time with our Lord. This is for not only the members of Bethany, but your families, friends, neighbors and our community. Spread the word and let’s watch what happens!
Ephesians 6:18

VISION TEAM BULLETIN BOARD
 
“Bethany Lutheran Church is going through a REBIRTH and RENEWAL!  Our current activity is to understand our current situation, to seek input from our surrounding community and congregation regarding their spiritual needs, to identify our immediate ‘customers’ [inside and outside the church], and to create a new mission [our purpose] and a new vision [future direction].
 
We have been reaching out in the neighborhood surrounding Bethany and at Salisbury University to inform people about our activities and to invite those interested in joining us for worship or any of our community service projects.  Members of the congregation have also been spreading God’s word in their own neighborhood and inviting everyone seeking fellowship and spiritual guidance to give Bethany Lutheran Church a try.
 

The Vision Team would appreciate any and all feedback on the PROPOSED MISSION STATEMENT for Bethany Lutheran Church by the members of our congregation.  This statement expresses OUR PURPOSE or WHY WE EXIST.

PROPOSED MISSION STATEMENT:

“As Christ’s Disciples, we exist to spread God’s Love through His Word and through our faithful action.”
