Kyle M. Hunter

Senior Minister

Welcome to Bethany Christian Church’s website, we are happy that you have found us online. We here at Bethany seek to be the body of Christ in many different ways. We gather together every Sunday at 10:30 for worship, an experience that always includes a special place set just for you around the communion table. A table where all are invited and all are welcome to share in the partaking of the bread and of the cup just, as Jesus instructed. We seek to connect with each other through the ministry of fellowship. We are intentional about the formation and education of everyone, regardless of where you might be on your journey of faith. We seek to be good stewards of the gifts that we have been given while equally encouraging the discovery of and the embracing of new gifts. Gifts that you might not even know that you have. Curious yet? Come and join us! After all, there’s always room at the table and we would love to join you on your walk of faith. And if you have any questions, come on by 601 East Mill Road. My door is always open!

Minister of Music

Music is a wonderful part of worship. We provide opportunities to learn to play different instruments, sing in the choir, sing special music, or just enjoy the worshipful music as a member of the congregation. Whatever your choice, we believe we can help you experience the presence of God through worshipful music. We look for you to come and experience God’s grace through music.
Barbara Hester 

Minister of Education & Family Ministry

From babies to senior adults, we have a place in worship and church life. We have a nursery for infants or a cry room with closed circuit TV so you can care for your infant and still follow the worship service. For children up to age twelve, there is Worship and Wonder, where the children have an opportunity to grow in their faith while the morning worship is held for older youth and adults.  Each summer, there are opportunities for age appropriate Church Camps.  Keenagers and Women’s Fellowship meet monthly.

Little Disciples Day Care Director
Bethany Little Disciples Day Care Ministry is an outreach ministry of Bethany Christian Church. It is a child-centered ministry, providing opportunities in a happy, Christian environment for children to grow spiritually, socially, emotionally and physically. We believe children are a gift from God and it is our responsibility to nurture these gifts into becoming all they can become. We provide this nourishment in an environment where children can learn in a hands-on manner with the guidance of the teaching staff.
