Welcome to Bethany Lutheran

New members often tell us they joined our church because they immediately felt a warm welcome when they walked in our doors. Whether you’re looking for your next church family or just in town for the weekend, we hope that's the case for you as well!

Our Mission
Come to Bethany and be renewed through the love of Christ!

All people are welcome and invited. We are young and old, cradle Lutheran and newly Christian, suburban and rural, white, black and brown, conservative and liberal, straight and gay, married and single, member and non-member, and always both saint and sinner!

We’re a community of saintly sinners and transformed non-conformists seeking to live lives of faith and integrity. Come and see! We’ve been saving a place at the table for you. 

Learn more about membership, fellowship, and service opportunities!


We are an Illinois congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Northern Illinois Synod.
