Thank You Pastor Dana for your leadership, faithfulness and your heart!

It has come to the time when we must say goodbye to another pastor.  Pastor Dana’s last sermon will be delivered on June 10th.  We will be holding a luncheon following the service to honor her ministry with us.  There will be a basket at the reception for cards, gifts, and anything you wish to leave her.  This will be a sad day for many of us, who have grown from her teaching and guidance.  At a time when we hear about strong women in the world, we have had experience of witnessing one first hand here at Bethesda.  So, let’s all show up and give Pastor Dana the send off that she deserves.
