Scam Emails: Bethany staff members have seen an increase in the number of scam emails we are receiving, and we also have become aware of more serious scam email efforts that make it appear they are originating from a Bethany staff member. Please rest assured that no Bethany staff member will ever ask you for money, gift cards or other favors in an email. If you receive such an email, you should delete it or mark it as spam. And if you aren’t sure whether an email from us is legitimate, don’t hesitate to call the office and ask.

Sanctuary Project Update: The Sanctuary Project Committee has been hard at work evaluating needs, researching various possibilities, and gathering estimates. After presenting their findings to the congregational council, the committee is now finalizing their proposal for a congregational vote. Plan now to attend an informational gathering after worship on Sunday, May 1. Background information on the project will be sent by regular mail and email early next week. This will be your opportunity to hear the background of the project, review the draft proposal, and to ask questions of the committee. There will be a congregational meeting after worship on Sunday, May 22, to vote on the final proposal.
