Bethany United Church of Christ is a family of faithful Christians on Rising Sun Avenue in northeast Philadelphia. We have been welcoming people to walk with Jesus for more than 100 years. Our congregation is blessed to share ministry in our building with Christian Fellowship, a Haitian congregation, and with Bethany Academy pre-school. This past year, we raised funds and also sent people from our congregation to engage in a joint-ministry with Christian Fellowship in Haiti. This fall, we are planning to host a Health Fair highlighting services available in our community, in addition to supporting a variety of local and conference-wide ministries.
Bethany has enjoyed a long and close relationship with the Philadelphia Protestant Home (PPh). Several times each year, Bethany’s pastor, the Rev. Dr. Jack F. Price, offers special studies for both church members and PPh residents. Every Christmas, a group of Bethany carolers goes to PPh to visit and sing for the residents and staff.
Pastor Jack F. Price leads us with interactive and energetic preaching firmly rooted in the best of Biblical scholarship. As a faith community, we are committed to living the journey of faith with integrity, optimism, and love. The greatest strength of Bethany is the spirit of her people who exhibit a deep commitment to caring for and supporting each other. This commitment extends to those in the neighborhood and our sisters and brothers in the Philadelphia Association and the Pennsylvania Southeast Conference of the UCC. Thank you for your continuing prayer support of Bethany and its ministry.
