HOPE RISING: Upcoming Events


The following are a list of upcoming events at Bethany Church (note some events are being held in-person and some are being offered virtually).

NEW DATE Bethany Drive-Thru Christmas Celebration
Saturday, December 12 | 5:00pm – 8:00pm
Greenland Campus

Kick off the Christmas season this year with a bang. Grab your family, some snacks and celebrate with us – Drive-thru style! As you make your way through our campus in your car, the landscape will be bursting with Christmas lights and decorations. You will experience a live nativity, holiday music and a huge 30-foot Christmas tree.

There will be plenty of Christmas spirit for all – so, be sure to invite your friends (in their own cars of course). CLICK HERE to access our event promo kit where you will find plenty of tools, an invite, graphics and some ideas on how to get the word out.

Operation Christmas Child
November 1 – December 14
Bethany Shoebox HQ

Although we are going virtual this year, the Bethany family is again participating in Operation Christmas Child. Join us as we share the hope of Jesus with children throughout the world. For only $25 you can stuff a shoebox with Christmas goodies. Building your shoebox online is very easy. Visit the Bethany Shoebox Headquarters and select the items you want to include in your shoebox. After you complete your box and checkout, Samarian’s Purse will then build and deliver your bundles of hope to kids around the world. This is a great way to share the true story of Christmas to those in need as each box also includes the message of God’s love. Involve the whole family and help us reach the goal of providing at least 1,000 shoeboxes of hope to children this Christmas. Our campaign ends on December 14, so don’t delay. 

Visit Bethany’s Shoebox Headquarters to build your gift today.

Operation Christmas Joy
November 10 – December 5
Bethany Wish List Website
Make a difference this Christmas season by ensuring that families in our region have gifts for their children. We are working with Lamprey River Elementary School and Bethany Christian Services (New Hampshire foster families) to gather a wish list from families in need this year. No child should go without at least one gift this Christmas and experience the wonder and love of Jesus in a tangible way. 

Here is how it works: Visit our Wish List website and select the gifts you would like to purchase. The system will then send you a gift confirmation. It’s also very important that you print your confirmation email or record the gift code for each gift as you will need to affix that code to each purchase. Then, go buy your gift and drop it off at any one of the drop boxes located on a Bethany campus (with your gift code attached). Be sure to return your gift NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 5. The Bethany elves will then make sure each wish is granted and the gifts delivered. 

We are planning three “in person curb side drop off” opportunities to bring your gifts:
– Sunday, November 29 | all three campuses| 11:00am-12:30pm
– Wednesday, December 2 | Greenland campus | 6pm-7:30pm
– Saturday December 5 | all three campuses | 9:00am-10:30am

Go shopping on the Bethany Wish List Website today.

Christmas Eve Broadcast
Thursday, December 24
4:00p | 6:00p | 8:00p | 10:00p

You and your family are invited to join us online this year to share in our Christmas Eve experience. There will be uplifting music and Pastor Bruce will be sharing a heart-felt Christmas message as we celebrate together. We also encourage you to invite your friends and family to tune in as this is a wonderful way to share Jesus with those that might not know Him.
