Congregational Meeting For Calling Associate Pastor
After 11am Service On Sunday, Nov. 9

Please note that we will have a congregational meeting on Sunday, November 9 after the 11:00 AM service for the purpose of calling an associate pastor to join us in ministry at Bethany. This position will focus on more general pastoral responsibilities.  When "vetting" the original list it became apparent to the committee that one candidate stood out as qualified to fill the "more general" pastoral position.
