Greetings on this sunny Monday morning,

Here are a couple of images from May 6, Senior Sunday, where Bethany’s seniors helped conduct worship and were honored for their academic achievement. Thank you, Kathy Dudgeon and family for these images. Seniors are Gavin Jakubik, Mia Peeples, Bella Fenner and Grace Dudgeon.

Just a reminder, also, that this coming Wednesday we have a presentation on whole-life stewardship and legacy giving by attorney Janis Cunningham. A free catered meal is included. Call the office at 842-4241 to reserve a spot. It all starts at noon.
