About Us

Bethany is a congregation of the Northeast Association of the Wisconsin Conference of the United Church of Christ.

We are a congregation that laughs with great regularity; at jokes, at ourselves and with joyfulness.

Bethany is a union of three congregations and has been at its present location for 55 years.

We are a lively, mission-oriented congregation. We combine our interest in local and world needs in our mission projects.

Bethany UCC Opportunities



This garden is at the street side of the building. Within this garden are a flower garden beneath our church sign, our Bethany Little Free Library, a sign in three languages that expresses “Wherever you are from, we are glad you are our neighbors”, and the current project in process: A Peace Pole. We want this garden to express to our neighborhood who we are in a creative way.



Our Little Free Library is an overwhelming success story. Built by one of our members, it is an expression of neighborhood generosity by our congregation. Filled with books by our members, the idea is to take books and read them and return them or make an exchange of books. There is no fee to use our little library. 

“Wherever you are from, we are glad you are our neighbors” This colorful sign is beneath our Little Free Library. It expresses our openness to people of all walks of life, all nationalities and languages and welcomes them to our city.

Bethany Worship

We love our worship hour. Our sanctuary is a warm and welcoming space. Our worship is traditional with occasional diverse programs and musical groups in worship. Our main instrument is an organ and we use the piano with great regularity.

We are developing a choir that sings on communion Sundays and holidays and for special events. We hope this program grows with time. Our celebration of the Sacrament of Communion is held on the first Sunday of the month plus important church holidays like Easter, Pentecost, World Communion Sunday and Christmas.

We believe in two sacraments:

The Sacrament of Baptism

The Sacrament of Holy Communion

We believe in an open table for communion. Anyone is welcome to the table. Our styles of communion sometimes vary from pew communion to intinction.

We are casual worship attenders. Feel welcome to enter our building in your casual clothes and be ready to welcomed with joy.
