Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The Bethany community presented a variety of events at Annual Conference centered around the theme of witnessing, reflecting both the message of 1 John 1:1-2 and the Conference theme,
"Live as Courageous Disciples."

Many visitors to the Bethany exhibit added their voices to the conversation by writing responses to questions about discipleship:

Read the responses shared by Brethren sisters and brothers!
