Plan Your Legacy of Love

Thank you for your interest in supporting Bethany Christian Services. Whether you are new to the concept of legacy giving and simply need more information, or have already designated Bethany in your Will, we look forward to getting to know you better and what your legacy means - for generations to come.  


Bethany Christian Services impacts the lives of children and families for Christ. We strive to be good stewards of the lives God has entrusted to us and extend that effort into every area of our lives—financially, relationally, and spiritually. 

Working with the Barnabas Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides no-cost gift planning services to our supporters, we offer help as you seek to make wise financial decisions—based in scripture.

Below you’ll find articles that explain a biblical view of stewardship as well as some additional planning resources. For more information about legacy planning, please contact us at
