Bethesda Episcopal Church was formally established in 1830. This book celebrates the significant spiritual presence of this church in many lives for nearly two hundred years.

Within its pages, you will find fascinating stories and photographs that document the life of Bethesda in the midst of wars, social upheavals, and celebrations. A diverse group of people, including Bethesda communicants and others in the community, authored the chapters.

This beautiful hard cover book, with a dust jacket, sewn binding and acid-free paper, includes 336 pages plus an 8-page color insert. It also includes many historical photos from the church archive as well as more recent photos.
