Bethel Lutheran Church’s annual
meeting will be on Sunday, January 24,
2021 at 10:15 am following worship.
The snow date is January 31, 2021 at
10:15 am following worship.
Jennifer Hansmann for many years has volunteered in organizing and collating the weekly bulletin and the monthly Beacon. She would like to have a much deserved
break, although she will continue as the
financial secretary. If you’re looking for a rewarding way to pitch in, pray about volunteering your time and using your skills for only a few hours out of your week to help the church. The task can be done by one person, but maybe 2 or 3 volunteers want to take on this task together. If you are interested, please contact a council member or just talk to Jennifer.
Thanks, Bethel Lutheran Church Council
Operation Cornerstone Status: The Operation Cornerstone committee would sincerely like to thank the entire congregation for their support of this project. The financial contributions have been amazing and we are at $24,583 toward our goal. At this time, we are expecting the tuckpointing to be completed in 2021. As a committee, the objective is to have the resources to fully pay for the project at the point the contractors arrive. This leaves us with approximately $4,000-$5,000 additional funds to secure. Thus, we have turned the corner in successfully raising funds and literally need one more boost to satisfy the debt we will incur. We will keep you apprised of details regarding the start of the work. In the interim, your prayers for our church family and our church needs are greatly appreciated. We are genuinely grateful for your financial contributions and any future donation to this project. Many thanks, The Operations Cornerstone Committee
Church Building Hours
At the October Council meeting, the Council determined that effective immediately our church building will be unlocked (handicap entrance double doors) during the hours of 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. daily. If there is an evening activity scheduled, the building will remain open. The last person leaving is asked to turn off all the lights and lock the handicap entrance doors. If you need access to the church when it is locked, please call Terry Drewelow @ 319-464-4499. If he is not available, please call Diane Buss @ 319-415-1583. Thank you.
