2017 Easter Cross

We are happy to announce that we have paid off the loan on our Sanctuary Grand Piano. This means we are no long accepting donations to that fund and can now concentrate on other funds that need our “second-mile” gifts. One such fund is our Agape Music Fund that supports our monthly contemporary service. Please make your check out to Bethel UMC and mark it “Agape Music Fund”.
