Welcome Pastor Bruce!
On Sunday January 24, 2021, the congregation voted unanimously to Call Pastor Bruce to Bethany. Pastor Bruce will officially begin on February 1st, although his ministry with Bethany has already begun! Pastor Bruce has been serving as our supply Pastor during the month of January. Pastor Bruce has already become involved with our Food Pantry ministry, meeting with our staff, worship planning, helping to organize an outreach project for Mary's Shelter and Opportunity House and sharing his excitement and encouragement to reach out to the community. We pray for God's continued blessings and guidance for Pastor Bruce and our congregation as we begin a new adventure together!
