CONGREGATIONAL MEETING: Council will be holding a Congregational Meeting in the sanctuary at 7 pm this Tuesday, December 8. We will be asking for approval of the budget for the first half of 2021. We will also be asking for approval of the purchase and installation of a new furnace and A/C unit for the parsonage. The agenda and proposed budget were sent out via Bethel News last week but extra copies are available on the tables in the narthex.
