Pastor Ben

We gather every year as a church family to give thanks for all God has done in our lives. This year is no different! At this year’s Thanksgiving Eve worship we will also have a service of installation for Pr. Ben. An installation is a public recognition of Pr. Ben’s call to be the Lead Pastor at Bethel. This time of worship will be a celebration of thanksgiving for all that God has done in our lives and at this church. Oh, and we will eat pie after! (Pr. Ben likes pecan pie.)

What’s Been Happening

Bethel Bus and Thermometer

The Bethel Bus Ordering Goal Has Been Reached!! Bethel members approved and have been raising funds for a new Bethel Bus. The revised total cost of the bus is $136,620.

We have raised $92,826 to date (Nov 15) and the order for the bus has been placed.

Are we done? Absolutely not. We made a commitment at the special congregational mtg to fund the bus in its entirety. Please continue to give generously . We will be financing the remaining amount but would love to pay it off early thus freeing up more $’s for ministry :-)

What Now? The bus, just like any ministry tool, needs to be a vehicle to serve the Bethel community and beyond! Please continue to invite and welcome friends and neighbors to participate in our Out & About events as well as look for new opportunities to serve where God leads. Exciting times are ahead!!!

Peace, Tom
