Jazz At Bethany T-ShirtsIn October 2000 a new Ministry was born at Bethany. We now "Worship the Lord to the Sounds of Jazz" on the first Saturday of every month, from October through June. Our Jazz Vespers are at 6 - 7:30pm, with light refreshments afterwards, giving you time to meet and greet our musicians. Our past featured musicians have included Junior Mance, Yvette Glover, Hilton Ruiz, Cyrus Chestnut, Jimmy Heath, Earl May, Lizz Wright, David ‘Fathead’ Newman, Mulgrew Miller, Slide Hampton, Sonny Fortune, Houston Person, and Geri Allen.

Thank you for your continued support as we celebrate our 12th season!

"JAZZ AT BETHANY" T-shirts are available for $25.
