Bethany Lutheran Church

Hello Monday!  I saw daffodils popping up yesterday!  Nothing like spring flowers to give one hope!


Today I am just going to update you on what is happening in the office.


Kristi is continuing to grow into the bookkeeper position and taking on more of the daily activities and being the main contact person for Bethany business.  She is ordering supplies, managing the water system testing, putting together the newsletter and the bulletins, to name just a few.


As for me, I am attempting to pull back into the support roll I had a few years ago.  I am in the office one day per week handling volunteers for Sundays, doing an email, helping with various Sunday Service items.  I would say my main focus is worship and membership.  I continue in my volunteer roll of Financial Secretary for which you may find me in the office at various hours.


If you have any questions, please ask.  We are here for you!

Peace – Wendy
