main image

The Church of Steadfast Love, part of Compass Housing Alliance, holds is Service of Remembrance at 4 p.m. Friday, Jan. 6. We have a large group going, many walking on the 2:55 p.m. ferry.

The service pays homage to homeless women and men who have died in the past year, and serves as a reminder that homelessness is unacceptable.

Tree is taken down

main image

The magnificent 25-foot Bethany Christmas tree was dismantled this morning, always a bittersweet experience. Under the able direction of Ruth Bartunek, a team of about a dozen people took off the ornaments, ribbon and lights and carefully stored them away for next year. Thanks to Pastor Paul, Nancy Wetzler, Ron and Carol Fenner, Cindy Heine, Joe Sommerseth, Tad Merten, Heather and Dave Ballaine, Janet and Fred Williams, Barbara Swartling and Kathy Dudgeon for all the work this morning.

But the excitement didn't stop there. Jeff Jensen, a retired civil engineer, spent most of the morning atop a very tall ladder replacing the ceiling lights in the sanctuary. Thanks, Jeff.
