Scam aimed at Bethany members

main image

Bethany member Louise Urness is warning everyone not to fall to a scam that's hitting her email this morning and potentially many more of us at Bethany. The email looks like it's from Norm Davis, a member here, but it is not. "I need your help" is the title, and the narrative is that Norm is stuck in the Philippines and he needs $1,700 from your to get out. DON'T OPEN THE EMAIL. DON'T SEND MONEY. It's not Norm.

Compass Housing Alliance gala, auction coming can't be missed

main image

Good morning,

As you know, Bethany Lutheran Church has a deep and long-held relationship with Compass Housing Alliance, the Seattle-area entity that houses and helps the homeless. Colleen Chupik, David Swartling, Dick Heine and Franklin Chu from Bethany are or have been board members, three of them current members on the CHA board. Bethany member Louise Urness is the widow of the Rev. Nyer Urness, namesake for one of CHA's many homeless-housing complexes. And you should see Bethany member DeMar Sather at work in the Compass mailroom each Wednesday. The list goes on and on.

Now comes the time to support Compass, by attending its biggest annual fundraiser, it's gala and auction from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, March 18, at Motif Seattle, 1415 Fifth Ave. Bethany has tables reserved. Contact Swartling, Chupik or Heine to go, or you can call me at the office, 842-4241.

Besides raising funds, the evening and auction offers a great time. Do consider attending.
