Bethany Lutheran Homes marks anniversary

A Bit of History- In the mid-1960's, a local Lutheran Pastor shared a vision with his congregation of a need for better and more available nursing home care for the elderly in the area. The Lutheran congregations involved were Our Savior's, Saint John, Emanuel, St. Paul, Faith, Timothy and Shepherd of the Valley in Council Bluffs; St. Paul's in Neola, Underwood in Underwood, St. John Honey Creek, St. John Mineola, St. Paul Treynor, St. John's Hastings, and St. John and Trinity in Persia. Articles recount the mission of Bethany Lutheran Home's early stages: "As Christians we pledge ourselves to live by HIS WORD. One of the important parts of Christian living is concern for, and caring for the elderly. The premise of Bethany Lutheran Home was built around Matthew 25:40, "Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, ye did it to me also." Bethany Lutheran Home continues to provide a place of comfort and compassion for more than 121 individuals seeking long-term care, short-term rehabilitation or Alzheimer/Special Care. Meeting the needs and enhancing the quality of life, Bethany Lutheran Home provides a well-rounded program to meet the ever-changing needs and desires of our residents. Jesus said in John 14:2, "In My Father's House are many Rooms...I have prepared a place for you." Thanks to the continued support of your congregation, Bethany Lutheran Home is proud to provide a place for hundreds of individuals in the past and look forward to serving many more in the years to come.
