June 6 is the 36th anniversary of our merged church and Pastor Jan will be the 14th pastor who has served Bethel Wesley. The Methodist Church has an itinerant ministry, meaning the Conference Bishop and his Cabinet assign and move pastors, usually around 5 years. We have been privileged to see many different perspectives on sharing God’s Word.
The Trustees are preparing the parsonage for Pastor Jan who will move-in on June 25. Her first Sunday preaching is July 3. There will be a reception for her after the service on July 10. <!–split–>
Please pray for Pastor Jan as she faces the challenge of leading our congregation. Also, pray for Bethel Wesley that we will continue to grow in our love of God and be a blessing to our community. – Staff Parish Committee
