Community Events

We are so proud of our strong community at Bethesda! Part of what makes us close is our constant effort to plan fun community building events. Below you’ll see upcoming and annual events that anyone is free to join. Check back regularly community events updates.

Annual & Recurring Events

Monthly Men’s Breakfast

On the second Saturday of each month, the men of Bethesda gather at 8:00am in the Parish Hall to have breakfast together. All men are welcome and encouraged to join!

Family Camp

Save the date: August 16-18.
Every year we reserve an ENTIRE LOOP (very private) at Sutton Campground for a weekend of relaxed fun for Bethesda families. You get your own camping spot in the loop (limited hook-ups available) and we join together for one dinner potluck plus Sunday worship. Otherwise, it’s very laid back and a great chance to get away and hang out on the Oregon Coast. Because the whole loop is ours, kids can bike & run around more freely. Sutton is just outside of Florence and there are awesome trails to Sutton Lake, a very secluded and awesome beach, and lots of nature trails. Let Pastor Tom know if you’re coming! Only $40/family

Annual Garage Sale

Our annual Garage Sale is a great way to do some summer cleaning and organizing! During the start of the summer, we ask our Bethesda community to donate gently used items. During a weekend in August, we hold a Garage Sale, open to the public, to help raise money for the church. It’s a great fundraiser, and is always a fun time to spend together. Learn more ways to help.

Worship in the Park

On beautiful summer days here in Oregon, we like to soak up the sun as much as we can! Two Sundays during the summer, we take our worship hour outside. After our services, we have a BBQ outside with all of our friends and family, with games and music and other fun summer activities. Worship with us!

Our 2019 annual outdoor service & BBQ date will be followed by a potluck and BBQ (we bring the BBQ, you bring the pots and luck!) Look for more information to come in the Sunday blue sheets and e-news. But save the date because this is an event not to be missed. Date to be determined, check back soon!

Upcoming Special Events

Choir Performance

We have been practicing a favorite hymn/anthem over the last few years in order to learn all the different, difficult parts. We are ready now to sing it for you and God’s glory. It is the beautiful hymn arranged as an anthem, “How Great Thou Art” by Stuart Hine and Dan Forrest. We would love to see you June 16 to hear this beautiful music sung by the choir.
