Baxter Bethany UCC

Bethany United Church of Christ

Bethany UCC is a pleasant and friendly church located just one short mile east of Baxter on North 95th Avenue West. There you will find a gray stone church housing a congregation of German Reformed background that now welcomes all that wish to worship, regardless of their faith history. Our building is accessible, via a lift located at the south end, under a rainproof portico. Our sanctuary, fellowship hall, and classrooms are air-conditioned. Ample off-street parking is available.
